I made these yesterday and they were a hit! Even my daughter's friend, who normally runs from sugar free stuff, said he never would have known it was sugar free if I hadn't told him. I did change the topping though, I bought a tub of Sugar free chocolate frosting and added it to the top. I also used Sugar free Cool Whip instead of Fat free, since fat free cool whip has just as much sugar as the regular whipped topping. Awesome sugar free treat! Thanks!
easy to do and really yummy, the vanilla filling is incredible... My daughter always bring me some from the conner pastry place. Mine were better except for the chocolate on top, ever though its really good, I need to fine another recipe for the chocolate topping.. any suggestions...(more sweet)
The eclair dough was surprisingly easy to make!! Great to use as a base for all kinds of different fillings. Great recipe overall
These turned out great! They were super easy to make and were delicious and very pretty too. I just used chocolate syrup for the topping. I'm sure I will make again. Thanks for posting!
OMG!!! These were perfectly amazing!!! My hubby and I both have a serious sweet tooth. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with type two diabetes, and I seriously need to lose weight. But, we both still like our sweets. I understand the seriousness of diabetes, so I have been trying diabetic friendly desserts. This was NO disappointment. I pretty much followed the recipe, except used great value brand SF french vanilla pudding, and light cool whip, just because this Wal mart doesn't carry the FF cool whip. As I was making, and tasting, I tasted the vanilla filling. This alone was SO good. I thought if the filling is this good, I may not even have to add the chocolate topping, but of course I did. I had to let my hubby try and he said " I probably shouldn't have anymore because of my sugar." I was so pleased to say, "Dear, this is SF." Normally, he doesn't want to hear about anything SF. He won't drink any SF drinks. I am no chef, but this was so easy too. I was a lil hesitant to try and make eclairs, but who knew? I am usually a brownie, and rice krispy junkie, but I think I may have just found a new best friend :-)
I made them for my mom for Mother's Day. She loved them so much they were gone by the next day. Thanks so much.
I made these twice, the 1st time I under baked them & the deflated. I had made custard filling also sugar free. I used Erythritol instead of white sugar. I did used 1 oz of semi sweet chocolate, tsp of butter & t TB of warm water. DH & DMI ate 2 each. They said they were the best they ever had. My compliments to you! BTW they freeze beautifully.
My FIL is diabetic and I wanted a sugar free dessert to make for his birthday, I picked these because of the reviews and I was so amazed at how incredible they were! You can not tell that they are sugar free, they taste so amazing! Instead of the chocolate frosting for the top I melted some german chocolate with a little cream and dipped them in that and it turned out beautifully.
Outstandingly wonderful!! Made these for a "girlz only" party & since everyone was on a diet- these were perfect. Everyone raved they were SO delicious- esp. sugar free. Didn't do the chocolate topping- just drizzled with SF chocolate syrup. YUMMY!!
Wow! Who knew sugar free could taste this good! I used sugar free Cool Whip instead of fat free (I think the butter in the lady fingers kinda defeats the purpose). Anyway, I have a dear one who cannot eat sugar, and he was amazed that this had none. It really tastes like full-fledged, hi octane eclairs!
