Easy No Bake Milano Chocolate Eclair Dessert

by Alli

There’s a lady in our church that makes the best chocolate eclair dessert. It’s made with layers of graham crackers, creamy vanilla pudding, and topped with a homemade chocolate icing that hardens as it sits in the fridge. It’s amazing. Every time I make this dessert, it disappears in a hurry.

This past weekend, I decided to mix things up a bit. I’m crazy about Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies. I’m partial to milk chocolate, but you can replace them with the dark chocolate cookies in this recipe if dark chocolate is your thing. That’s how my Milano Chocolate Eclair Dessert came into being. And I have to tell you, it’s a huge hit.

Milano Chocolate Eclair is so easy and delicious

For my version, I replaced the graham crackers with the Milano cookies. I didn’t make as many layers and I nixed the homemade chocolate topping and replaced it with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Yum!

No-Bake Milano Chocolate Eclair Dessert

My Milano Chocolate Eclair Dessert is the perfect dessert for Sunday lunch. I make it the night before and store in the fridge overnight. You will need four packs of Milano milk (or dark) chocolate cookies. It may sound like a lot, but these cookies come in very small packages.

Top Milano Chocolate Eclair with chocolate syrup

Mix together a large package of instant vanilla pudding and 3 cups cold milk. Whisk for 2 minutes or until well blended. Fold in whipped topping.

In a 9×13 pan, place a single layer of Milano cookies.

Pour the vanilla pudding mixture over the cookies. Top with another layer of Milano cookies. That’s it!

The family declares this dessert a winner and it’s unbelievably easy to put together. The cookies don’t get soggy at all. One of my grandkids doesn’t care for chocolate (big eye roll insert) and he loved this dessert. It’s not overly sweet and has just the right amount of chocolate. Did I mention how easy it is to make?

Milano are my favorite Pepperidge Farm cookies. A tall glass of milk and OMG heavenly, just heavenly. I could probably make this if it weren’t for the fact I’d probably munch most of them while preparing the dish. *smile*
