One of Justin's favorite treats are Eclairs. I was going to buy him some for Valentine's Day, but figured if I made them, it would mean so much more to him! Pretty sure I won best wife ever award for making them and Justin keeps asking when I am going to make more! So delicious and so easy! I do have to say though, I did not know that they would get so big! Mine turned out huge! I made ten huge eclairs. Next time, I will make them much smaller and I will get so many more, probably about 20-40. I got this recipe from



1 c. water
1/2 c. butter
1 c. flour
4 eggs

Bring to rolling boil water and butter. Take off heat. Add flour and stir with spoon until ball can be formed. Add eggs. Beat like crazy. Mix until dough is very stiff; otherwise it will run all over pan. Drop by full teaspoons onto a cookie sheet for individual serving; put in a circular ring or in a strip.
Bake 45-50 minutes at 400°F. Cool out of draft.


2 pkg. instant French vanilla pudding
2-1/2 c. milk
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix pudding and milk. Mix well. Fold in Cool Whip and vanilla. Slice eclair in half and fill generously with entire amount of filling. Replace top of eclair. Drizzle top of eclair with Chocolate Sauce.


6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-1/3 c. canned (evaporated) milk
1/2 c. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Melt chocolate chips and butter together. Gradually add milk and powdered sugar. Bring to boil. Stir continuously. Boil for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
Makes 3/4 quart.
