MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 10, 2012

I first made this recipe from the magazine right after it was published, then lost the magazine. This was wonderful! So easy to do eclairs for a crowd. I used regular pudding mix and regular chocolate syrup, but otherwise the same, and everyone loved it. So glad I found this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2011

I have had this recipe before so it was nice to find it again. I can tell you this is a great dessert for people who need sugar free foods, you can give it a twist by changing the flavors of pudding you use, it also works well with regular puddings. In my family there are a few diabetics so this works great for gatherins and everybody enjoys it!
