Chocolate Mint Eclair Dessert
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
My family enjoyed this dessert, but as a previous reviewer mentioned, it did not set up for perfectly cut pieces. I also doubled the icing. Also, we used peppermint flavoring, and I would recommend halving the amount of peppermint extract to 1/4 tsp. The peppermint was a little strong, but overall the dessert is yummy.
I made this for Christmas at the request of my 11 year old who loves chocolate and mint. I loved the flavor-it reminded me of the icebox cakes my mom used to make but much easier to prepare. I did have one problem in that it was fairly puddingish in that it didn't cut like the picture, I almost had to spoon it out like pudding. Not sure what went wrong but it won't keep me from making it again. Also since I always have several desserts for the holidays, if I make it again for a holiday, I plan on trying to see what happens with a smaller dish (9x9?) and for each of the graham cracker layers making it a double thickness. I'll probably 1/2 the rest of the ingrediants. And with the smaller dish, I hopefully won't have to double the frosting layer.
This is one of my favorite dessert recipes. I have made it on a number of family occasions and it always gets rave reviews. People cannot believe when I tell them what the ingredients are and just how easy it is to make. But I double the chocolate frosting or it doesn't quite cover the top.
Double the amount of chocolate frosting.
