Recipe for Chocolate Eclairs

What You Need

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 packages instant French vanilla pudding
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 container whipped topping 8 ounce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 1/3 cups evaporated milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the water and the butter or margarine into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Warm a large mixing bowl and after boiling the water and butter or margarine, pour this hot mixture into the large mixing bowl. Gradually add the flour and stir until the mixture forms a ball. Add the eggs one at a time and beat thoroughly. Mix until the dough becomes very stiff.

Drop this mixture by the teaspoon full onto a baking pan or cookie sheet while forming circles on the pan or laying the dough out in strips on the pan to bake. Place in the preheated oven to bake for about 20 minutes or until done. After baking turn off the oven but do not open the door. Allow the eclairs to stand in the oven for about 1 to 2 hours before removing them from the oven.

To prepare the filling for the eclairs you will add the instant pudding and milk to a large mixing bowl and then mix well. Fold in the whipped topping and the vanilla flavoring. After cooling the eclairs, slice the éclair in half and then generously fill the bottom layer with the creamy pudding mixture. Replace the tops and set aside until needed.

To prepare the chocolate sauce for the eclairs you will melt the 1/2 cup butter or margarine and chocolate chips together and blend well. Gradually add the evaporated milk and powdered sugar and mix well. Bring the mixture to a boil while continually stirring to prevent sticking and burning. Boil and stir for about 8 minutes and then remove from heat. Stir in the remaining vanilla flavoring. Drizzle this chocolate sauce over the tops of the prepared eclairs and then serve.
