"You can also make this with sugar free pudding and sugar free whipped topping. My mom has made this for years that way, completely sugar free but you'd never know it! Tastes great!"

"To get the recipe to feed more go to the Jello website and search for Eclair or Chocolate Eclair.  That is where the recipe came from.  The original recipe topping calls for canned frosting which makes it easier to use"

"The recipe calls for 1/2 ounce or 1/2 square of chocolate.  I just weigh out 1/2 ounce of chocolate chips (I always have them on hand) on my kitchen scale. "
