No-brainer Recipe: Easy Chocolate Eclair Cake

Easy Chocolate Eclair Cake Recipe

Are you in need for a easy dessert to take to casual summer parties? Chocolate Eclair Cake is a great way to go. It is best served the first or second day, after being refrigerated for a few hours.

I originally made the frosting from scratch but it turned out kinda grainy and gross. I will go the easy route next time around and try out a pre-made frosting.

I love it!
