For the eclair cake base {pate a choux}

for the filling:

  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups egg nog
  • 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature

For the cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • chocolate syrup to drizzle over the top, if desired


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9x13 glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium pot, bring butter and water to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in flour, salt and sugar until a dough forms. Cool 10 minutes.
  • Stir in eggs, 1 at a time, incorporating each time to make a smooth mixture that will seem half way between a dough and a batter.
  • Once all eggs are incorporated, pour into prepared baking dish and spread evenly across the bottom and up the sides 3/4 inch or so. Bake for 25 minutes or until puffed and lightly golden. Cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, whisk vanilla pudding mix with egg nog 2 minutes to thicken. Stir in cream cheese and mix until smooth. A stand mixer or hand held mixer is best for this!
  • Spread over the bottom of the baked shell.
  • For the topping, whip heavy whipping cream with vanilla and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling. Refrigerate up to 3 days {covered completely with plastic wrap}.To serve, cut into squares and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
