This decadent Chocolate Eclair Dessert recipe taken from the Amish is simple and easy to make.
There is no baking is required and it's great for parties or family get-togethers.
Just be sure to plan ahead though, it needs to "chill out" for awhile before serving.
By making it a day ahead the crackers will moisten up enough for easier cutting as well.
It was a great-tasting success for our family gathering - it should work for yours as well!
