S’mores Chocolate Eclair No-Bake Dessert Bars
You are mmmmmm’ing and drooling, as well you should. Yes, they really are as good as they sound. Truly. And they’re super easy to make, as any no-bake dessert bars should be!
Like me, you probably have fond memories you associate with s’mores and/or eclair cake. I sure do. For both. They take me back to when we were youth leaders for many, many summers full of camping, barbecues, picnics, and swimming. S’mores and all the variations possible are something I mastered early on in our leadership years. Now, every time I have a s’more it brings me back to those nights of laughing, talking, and teenage hysteria around the campfire. Good times.
For me, chocolate eclair cake has even more sentimentality and memories attached to it than s’mores. My grandmother used to make this cake for Christmas. As a child, whenever we got to go to her home for holidays, it was a major treat. All of us would pile into the van, trek the miles up north, and grab the best available sleeping spot. We adored sleeping all over the house wherever we could find a spot (with a family as large as ours, we were most often on floors—which we thought was great!), pretending we couldn’t hear the adults talking at the table, and waking up to the sound of my Grandma tinkering in the kitchen.
I’ve carried on the tradition of chocolate eclair cake for our own holidays. It isn’t the same as Grandma’s, for sure, but we all have a few moments of smiles and memories while we cut into it. It will be a favorite for generations to come, I’m sure. Now, these quick-and-easy no-bake dessert bars can bring smiles and joy to your family—they’re perfect for the holiday season too!
Let’s just say that putting both of these treats into the same pan might cause me to become a complete basketcase of tears and sentimentalism. In the best possible way.
