Although I love my Chocolate Eclair Torte recipe, this one was requested as a special dessert. It is fast and easy and everyone seems to love it. It cant be beat with a puff pastry lining!
Kind of a short cut to my Chocolate Eclair Torte recipe. Thought I would share, as it is a quick and easy dessert right in time for the Holidays.
