Easy No Bake Croissant Eclairs

Easy No Bake Croissant Eclairs | NothingButCountry.com

This recipe I have to give credit to my son. He came up with this. Not really my style of cooking. However I am super proud of him!

He is working on his Eagle Scout and he has to do the Cooking Merit Badge. He has to do 5 meals planned one can be a dessert. Since he was working on this at the church and there is no oven he needed to demonstrate a dessert that could only use a refrigerator and a microwave and he did it. And it was delicious too!

Easy enough for a teenage boy to work on!! And very quick I might add! They don’t have long attention spans so this is a perfect dessert you could make with your kids and even make for FHE (Family Home Evening)

We got all our ingredients from Aldi’s however you can get these at your favorite grocery store.

Chocolate cake frosting- you will need to microwave in 10 second intervals, stir, microwave 10 seconds, stir.. repeat till it is warm but not too runny. Just enough to drizzle/spread on your croissants.

(Not pictured- 2 boxes of instant vanilla pudding)  In a bowl mix 2 boxes of pudding (their small box– only size Aldi’s carries)  and 2 cups of cold milk. Whisk it together. Then fold in 1/2 a container of whipped topping. You will then have this yummy filling!

Aldi’s carries mini croissants. Cut them on the side to open them up, spoon in your pudding filling and then drizzle/top with your chocolate frosting.  They can be served immediately.

They are VERY YUMMY!  The guys then arranged these extras on a tray and served them to the young women at church. They TOO loved them!

This mix will make 2 dozen small croissant eclairs.

United States Flag Print Framed

United States Flag Print Framed | NothingButCountry.com

I really love this!! ALOT and it literally only took me 30 minutes (and that was mostly going into Hobby Lobby and buying the frame)

I purchased the wood frame at hobby lobby which is always 50% off.

United States Flag Print Framed | NothingButCountry.com

I cut out a piece of poster board 8×10 and got my and washi tape ready.

United States Flag Print Framed | NothingButCountry.com

The print I got from NoBiggie.net website. – Click here to get yours.

I printed it smaller than the size she offers. I wanted this to fit smaller into my 8×10 frame. I scaled it and printed it then cut it out.

I then glued on a piece of 8×10 burlap to my poster board. Glued on my flag and added a piece of washi tape to the flag to make it cute :)

Inserted my piece of art into my frame and was done!! EASY!

This frame actually has its own stand on the back for self standing, however I put mine in its own stand :)

I LOVE IT!! I may leave it out all year!!

Found other cute blue and green or safari things to add to the basket as well. The outfit actually makes me super happy. We have this “thing” going on with the mom to be. She is a major FSU fan and she knows were a major UF/Gator fan.  I seriously thought about getting him a Gator outfit but when I saw this– this made me happy. JUST a small reminder that some GATOR fan loves them. So even though its green/safari etc. The gator means ALOT MORE in this gift!!! So each time he wears it, mom can’t help to think UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. HAHA

I love these themed baskets. SO FUN TO GIVE!! However I think I am done for a while. Babies, graduations and end of the year… now on to a busy summer break! :)
