Doesn’t the name alone make you scream for joy? Don’t you feel like hopping up and down in excitement? It’s the Éclair Casserole! It’s the perfect mix of the classic French pastry and an icebox cake, using softened graham crackers to replicate the delicate pâte à choux, and a sweet, luscious, creamy filling to replicate the custard filling without even 1/8 of the effort! And then, of course, it is chocolate frosted, because Éclair Casserole is all about that indulgence! Bon appétit!
