Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Recipe for Nutella & Pumpkin Eclair Dessert

Easy Recipe for Nutella and Pumpkin Eclair Dessert

 

Ooooo I just love desserts like this.  I love the pudding, cream cheese, cool whip, crust and topping.  I love it all!  I used the seasonally available Pumpkin Jello Pudding but if you can’t find it just substitute it with vanilla pudding or butterscotch or whatever kind you like the best.  This is a great dessert to serve at a holiday party or at a shower.  I hope you like it as much as I did!

Recipe for Nutella and Pumpkin Eclair Dessert

Makes 12-16 servings

Crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup water
6 eggs
 
Preheat oven to 400°.  Bring water and butter to a boil, remove from heat and whisk in flour. Transfer to a plastic or glass bowl and using a hand mixer, mix in eggs one at a time. Spread evenly on a large greased cookie sheet or jellyroll pan. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes until light golden brown. Let cool completely before topping.
 
Filling
1 3.4 oz. Jello brand instant pumpkin pudding mix
1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups milk
1 (12 oz) tub of cool whip
 
In a mixing bowl, add the milk to the pudding mix and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until it becomes fluffy. Gradually add the pudding mixture slowly as you continually beat the mixture.  Spread pudding mixture on the completely cooled crust and then immediately top with cool whip.
 
Sauce:
1/2 cup Nutella (hazlenut chocolate spread)
3 Tbsp milk
 
Heat the Nutella and milk in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir until melted and heated through.  Remove from heat and drizzle sauce over the top of the cool whip.
 
Cut into squares and serve!
