In the place of ‘Cool Whip,’ you can use organic heavy whipping cream with cane sugar. For extra firmness, add a tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding to the whipping cream. Adding instant vanilla pudding prevents the watery texture in the recipe. There are so many ways to make this recipe interesting. You can use different types of crust in the place of Graham crackers such as ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits’, lady fingers, shortbread, or any cinnamon cookie. Try using Oreos, or Sara Lee pound cake, Milk Arrowroots, Vanilla wafers, chocolate Graham crackers, soda crackers, etc., are all excellent options. You could garnish on top with chopped berries, kiwis, peaches or add coconut flakes for a nutty twist. For the frosting, you can whip Nutella instead of chocolate frosting and top it with crumbled Toblerone bar or Hersheys bar or any of your favourite chocolate on top. These are some great kids birthday cake ideas which you can put to use. Whatever you decide to do, this Eclair Cake recipe will add a sweet charm to any occasion.

For the chocolate frosting, you can use semi-sweet or bitter-sweet dark chocolate chips or even combine the two types of chocolate chips. When you’re buying chocolate chips to prepare the frosting for this Eclair recipe, try to buy the fair trade organic chocolate with at least 70 percent or more cacao in it. This ensures less sugar and processing in the chocolate and yields maximum health benefits that come from chocolate. To make it healthier, choose dark chocolate instead of regular chocolate. Dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health and contains fiber and iron.
