Chocolate Eclair Cake

INGREDIENTS
CAKE
  1. 2 (3.4 oz.) pkgs.  instant vanilla pudding
  2. 3 1/2 cups milk
  3. 2 tablespoons water
  4. 1 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  5. 2 cups heavy cream
  6. 3 sleeves (14 oz.) graham crackers

CHOCOLATE GLAZE
  1. 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  2. 3/4 cup heavy cream
  3. 1/4 cup light corn syrup

INSTRUCTIONS
  • PUDDING: Add milk and pudding mixes to a large bowl and whisk until smooth and thick. Refrigerate.
  • STABILIZED WHIPPED CREAM: Stir the water and gelatin together in a small bowl; let sit 5 minutes. Microwave the mixture until it's bubbling around the edges and the gelatin dissolves, about 15 - 30 seconds. Set aside.
  • Using a hand electric mixer, whip the heavy cream on medium-low speed until foamy (about 1 minute), then increase speed to high and whip until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Add the gelatin mixture and whip until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.
  • FILLING: Fold whipped cream into chilled pudding then beat on low with electric mixer just until combined.
