Candy Corn – ish Eclair Cake

Éclair Cake … where do I begin?  I have obviously have been in the dark … maybe living in a bubble or under a rock.  Éclair cake or icebox cake made with graham crackers has been around for some time … but it’s a recent discovery to me!

First there was this recipe from Jocelyn at Inside BruCruew Life that caught my eye … then I found this recipe at Southern Living Magazine.  I had to make an Éclair Cake!

This is the second Éclair Cake that I have made …

I will share my first Éclair Cake with you tomorrow and share some info about the differences I found … just couldn’t wait to share the Candy Corn-esque one!  It’s colored like candy corn and cheesecake flavored.

  1. Spray an 8″ x 8″ pan with non stick spray.  Place 9 graham cracker squares, with sides touching, in bottom of pan. (Crackers will not cover bottom completely)

  3. Gently spread one half of pudding mixture over layer of graham crackers.

  1. Oh, I love éclair cakes! They’re so quick and easy and goooood. I never would have thought of making a candy corn-ish one, though. I’ve got it pinned and ready to go. Thank you!


  2. The colors are great for any autumn party, but at first I didn’t even think I’d read the recipe, not being a fan of candy corn. But….sure glad I did as there’s no candy corn involved (except for a garnish – just scrumptious cheesecake (that you colored) and cream cheese icing. It doesn’t get much better than that.

    Oh yes – we love éclair cakes so this is a Halloween/Thanksgiving/harvest keeper.


  3. Oh, my; it looks Wonderful and I bet it taste just as good as it looks.
    Pass a fork please as I’m ready to dig in. :}
