I’ve noticed that most recipes for refrigerator Chocolate Eclair Cake tend to share similar ingredients, instructions, and yield liberal amounts. That’s awesome if you’re going to an event with 10+ guests, but I purposely made this recipe smaller to accommodate your smaller BBQ or dinner party with 6-8 people. I did this because, believe me, if you end up with too many uneaten portions of this dessert, it just gets downright dangerous. So, we’re keepin’ it real with this smaller recipe.
