I bet I got your attention with that title didn’t I?? If I didn’t, what’s wrong with you!? When I saw the pin on pinterest it grabbed my attention too. Although it was for a normal éclair, as per usual I forgot the vanilla instant pudding & dark chocolate chips when doing the groceries yesterday. Luckily I had a package of butterscotch pudding in the
back of the pantry from Master 3’s party last year. Oh, & no butter in the fridge so I took the chance that margarine would do the trick, despite google suggesting otherwise!
I had planned on making them last night after the boys had gone to bed but by the time that rolled around I had other ideas. Namely a movie in bed with the electric blanket & cup of tea. So I whipped them up early this morning before heading off to our playdate.
The boys were otherwise occupied with Fantastic Mr Fox
& crashing cars into each others heads so I was able to get things started without my little “helpers”. I got the recipe from Hidden Ponies & just subbed in what I had to & hoped for the best.
I piped (somewhat unprofessionally) the dough onto a cookie sheet & got 15 relatively equal portions. By relatively I mean not so much! But they didn’t turn out so badly…surprisingly!
Master 2 thoroughly enjoyed the process of “cleaning”
I only had white chocolate chips so I used them & added a little cocoa powder…genius I hear you mutter, my thoughts exactly!
My oh my……….YUM!
They were a hit, even Master 3 ate most of one…until he hit the creamy middle. Which meant I had to finish it of course. Needless to say that 3.5 over a morning was probably overkill…but oh so worth it!
