Chocolate Eclair Dessert

This is one of my favorite recipes from my mom and it is now Bill's favorite dessert.  It is everything a good dessert should be in my mind, creamy, smooth, and chocolaty but not too rich.  It tastes fancy but best of all is super easy to make.  It is also a great summer dessert because it doesn't require the oven, and is served cold for a nice hot summer day.

Topping Ingredients

1 box graham crackers
2 small pkgs french vanilla instant pudding
