Easy Chocolate Éclair Squares

If you’re one of those moms who sends their kids to school on their birthday with a box of store-bought cupcakes, those days are over. With a recipe that is as easy as Honey Maid’s Easy Chocolate Éclair Squares, you can kiss the days of store-bought sadness goodbye. Both cost-efficient and super simple to make, kids will be licking their fingers on their way to grabbing seconds.

Easy Chocolate Éclair Squares

Servings: 24

  • 1 package vanilla pudding, such as Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk, divided
  • One 8-ounce tub Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
  • 22 Honey Maid Honey Grahams
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


Beat the pudding mix and 1 ¾ cups of the milk in large bowl with a whisk for 2 minutes. Stir in the Cool Whip. Layer about 1/3 of the grahams and ½ the Cool Whip mixture in 13-by-9-inch pan, breaking the grahams as necessary to fit; repeat layers. Top with the remaining grahams.

Microwave the chocolate and butter in medium microwaveable bowl on high for 1 ½ minutes, stirring after 1 minutes. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the sugar and remaining milk and stir until well blended. Immediately spread over the grahams. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Notes and Substitutions:

Make It Your Own: While all of the ingredients in this recipe perfectly complement each other, one slight variation may be worth considering if you are a chocolate fiend. Instead of using the Honey Maid Honey Grahams, swap them out for the chocolate-flavored ones to make your éclairs extra decadent.


  1. This looks wonderful! What kind of chocolate are you using? Do you mean cocoa powder or solid chocolate? Thanks!

  2. Love the recipe! But I had to back and check the date it was posted. Ummm, schools no longer allow homemade baked goods. They HAVE to be store bought. Sadly for those of us that would love to send in homemade goodies.
