Graham Cracker Eclair is an easy dessert to whip up and can be made the night before. It’s amazing what you can do with a little thawed whipped cream, graham crackers, and pudding.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I am thinking about summer gatherings. And with summer gatherings comes summertime food. Whenever we get together with friends and family, everyone pitches in. Someone brings the salad. Someone brings the fruit. I bring the dessert. I have a few go-to recipes that I always make during the summer. But the number one requested dessert is the Graham Cracker Eclair.

I can’t take all the credit for stumbling on this post. My sister was kind enough to pass it along to me after everyone drooled over it one night. I snatched that recipe right up and now people are asking me for it. And I happily give it to them.

Not only is it delicious, it’s one of the easiest things I have ever made. That gets a good star in my book! It’s the perfect dessert for a special occasion or an everyday treat!
