Eclairs are not only nearly impossible to make if you're not a pastry chef, they can also be very expensive at the bakery, or even in the grocery store. In the recipe below, you'll use just a handful of common ingredients and they can all be brought together in just a couple of minutes. This one's great for the kids, as there's no chopping with sharp knives or even getting anywhere near the oven. Just give them a bowl and a whisk, and watch your little chefs at work.
To put my own twist on it (and because we're chocolate lovers in this house!) I used chocolate instant pudding to make the mousse. If you prefer to keep your Eclair Cake more traditional, just swap that out for vanilla pudding mix and you'll get the full taste of a traditional eclair, but there will be plenty to go around!
