  1. In a large saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour all at once, stirring until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag; seal.
  2. Cut a 1-in. hole in one corner of bag. Pipe eight 3-1/2-in. logs onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400°; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack. Immediately cut a slit in each to allow stream to escape; cool. Split and set the tops aside. Discard soft dough inside.
  3. For filling, in a large bowl, whisk milk, vanilla and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in whipped topping; set aside.
  4. In another large bowl, whisk milk and chocolate pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Spoon vanilla filling into eclairs; replace tops. Spread with chocolate topping. Yield: 8 eclairs.

"I've made these twice now, and they are always good. I'm making them to take to my in-laws tomorrow. Both my father-in-law and my husband are diabetic so these more diabetic- friendly than regular eclairs. I do have one question that I wish someone could answer; is there a way to guarantee that they will form properly, or is it a hit and miss kind of thing? I always have a problem with the shells not hardening all the way in random spots. Is there a fix for this, something that I am doing incorrectly?"

"This was amazing! I had my family rate it on how many stars (on a scale of 1-5) they would give it and it got a 6! I thought this was amazing! The fat wasn't missed and neither was the carbs! It's a keeper!"
