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 sometimes like to freeze it for an hour before serving for an even firmer texture. I love it!
