Chocolate Eclair Graham Dessert

Patricia Pruett of Pueblo West, Colorado shares this smaller and easier version of the sweet classic. The vanilla filling sets beautifully, complementing the graham cracker crust and luscious chocolate coating.

    My mom used to make this for family get-togethers. It's really simple, but delicious.

    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.

    Can someone tell me how much choc chips this would be instead of half a square of choc.?
