I thought No Bake Eclair Cake was one of those desserts that everyone knew how to make.  I took it to a cook out this weekend and it turns out that not everyone has tried it before.  But it turns out it is a dessert that everyone loves (at least in my experience).  What is not to love about it?  Creamy filling, chocolate topping, no baking required!

I love that it comes together so quickly!  And it can be made the night before.  Actually it’s better that way!  It gives the graham crackers time to soften.  Soft graham crackers is where it’s at!  In this recipe anyway.

I know I’ve already shared a No Bake S’moreclair Cake with you, but strangely not everyone likes marshmallow.  Weird, right?  The vanilla flavor here is a little more universally appealing.  And it makes for a less sticky dessert, which momma likes when feeding it to kids age 4 and under.  Because, well, they  just can’t seem to keep the dessert from getting all over their face and hands and clothes.
