No-Bake Mint Chocolate Eclair Cake – chocolate graham crackers, pudding, cool whip, mint extract and chocolate frosting. Make ahead and refrigerate. Great dessert recipe for a crowd and St. Patrick’s Day party!
No-Bake Eclair Cakes are one of our favorite desserts! They are so easy to make and taste super delicious. I was thinking up some fun St. Patrick’s Day treats and came up with this amazing Mint Chocolate Eclair Cake. It is SO good. Seriously, how can you go wrong with mint and chocolate?
I used chocolate graham crackers in this cake. They are located right next to the regular graham crackers at my grocery store and Walmart. I bought Honey Maid brand. For the filling I used vanilla pudding and added some mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring. The hardest part of this dessert is waiting for it to set up!
