Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Lisa Swarm


Years ago a previous boss' wife made this dessert for the office. This was such a fantastic dessert that we all asked her for the recipe. Over the years I have made this for tons of family and friends gathering and always get asked for the recipe. So here it is and I hope you all enjoy this as much as my family and friends.
