TMJ Friendly Dessert – Chocolate Eclair Cake

Thanks to Lorelei for contributing the recipe for this quick & easy treat!

I can envision lots of tweaks to this recipe, too… You could make homemade pudding and frosting… you could even add your favorite fruit (bananas, strawberries, cherries?).


  • 1 (16 ounce) package graham crackers
  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (16 ounce) package prepared chocolate frosting


  1. Line the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan with graham crackers.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the milk and vanilla pudding according to directions on box.
  3. Fold in the whipped topping.
  4. Spread a layer of the pudding mixture over the graham crackers. Alternate the graham cracker and pudding layers up to the top of the pan.
  5. Cook the container of prepared frosting, uncovered in the microwave for 1 minute on half power.
  6. Pour over the top of the cake.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.
