Ingredients

Bottom Layer:

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, diced into pieces
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp First Quality cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tsp First Quality vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds (I used pecan cookie pieces)

Filling

  • 1/3 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp First Quality vanilla or chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Top Layer

Directions

  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat, add in brown sugar and cocoa powder and whisk until well combined. While whisking vigorously, slowly pour in beaten egg. Return mixture to heat and cook for 1 – 2 minutes until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Add in graham cracker crumbs, coconut, and pecans and toss until evenly coated. Press mixture into a buttered 8 by 8-inch or 9 by 9-inch baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap, place in freezer for 20 minutes or refrigerate for 40 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, using and electric hand mixer set on medium speed, whip together butter, heavy cream and vanilla pudding powder until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in powdered sugar and blend until mixture is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute (mixture may seem dry at first but should start to come together). Spread mixture into an even layer over chilled graham cracker base. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 15 minutes or refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate along with butter in a heat proof bowl, set over a pot of simmering water. Spread mixture into an even layer over filling layer, cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 10 minutes until chocolate has set. Cut into squares, store in an airtight container.

Ingredients:

 Pastry:
½ C margarine or butter (1 stick)
1 C sifted all-purpose flour
4 eggs

Filling:
1 Pkg of First Quality Strawberry  or Chocolate Mousse Mix (You can also use Fast & Fancy Mousse Mix or Cheesecake)

Icing:
2 squares (2 oz) unsweetened chocolate
2 C Sugar
1 C whipping cream

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 400◦F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

2. TO MAKE PASTRY:
Bring 1 cup water and the margarine or butter to a boil. Add the flour and stir constantly until the mixture is smooth and forms a ball (I would use a whisk @ first to mix the butter, flour & water). Remove from heat and let cool. Beat in the eggs, one at a time with mixer. Drop the dough by the teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until light brown. Set aside on a rack to cool.

3. TO MAKE FILLING:
                Follow directions according to pkg, refrigerate until ready to use.

4. With a serrated knife, slice the pastry puff lengthwise but not all the way through. Pipe the filling into the corner.

5. TO MAKE ICING:
Place in a medium saucepan and stir, then add the sugar and cream. Cook over medium heat until soft ball stage, 240◦F on candy thermometer. Let cool and beat until smooth. Set aside in a tub of ice cold water so that it thickens up real good. Ice the tops of the éclairs.

Makes 24 medium or 60 mini éclairs. 

This recipe offers a less fattening eclair as it is baked rather than fried.
