I made mostly fruit desserts for our 4th of July Cookout this year. Not to many "fatty" desserts. But I did indulge in 1 type. Mini Eclairs.
The first time I had Eclair..well I fell in love. A lady at church use to make eclair for all the potlucks, lunch and dinners we had at church when I was a teenager.
Easy, Quick and MMMMmmmmmm. Oh wow...I wish I had some now...

I made about 15 little ones of these, but had LOTS LOTS LOTS left over. So I ended up making a bigger one with the leftovers.
What You'll Need:
2 individual packages of graham crackers
1 (3oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups milk
1 container cool whip
1 can chocolate frosting
Red, White and Blue Sprinkles (If You Want Them)
(to make this thick enough, make sure to use 1 cup of milk or every oz of pudding)
(also I got these little bowls at the Dollar Tree, 4 bowls for $1.00)
What to do:
Press graham crackers into the bottom of each bowl, to form a layer of graham crackers.
In a large bowl, combine pudding mix and milk. Whisk the pudding and milk until it starts to thicken.
Fold in the whipped topping (cool whip) to pudding mixture.
Spoon the pudding mixture over graham cracker layer. This will be quite a thick layer.
Top with another layer of graham crackers (or for small bowls, just place 1 cracker on top of the pudding.)
Frost the tops with chocolate frosting.
If using sprinkles, sprinkle now :)
Refrigerate for about 5 hours for the graham crackers to soften.
