"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!"
"Rating is for the dough and filling only. I'm going to try an unsweetened chocolate glaze (using splenda) & butter. But this was a very nice solution to a dessert that some diabetic guests could have at a birthday celebration we had. Thanks for posting! *Update, everyone at the party was impressed with these. I ended up making the chocolate "drizzle" with 4 oz melted unsweetended chocolate with 5 packets of Splenda and 1/2 c. whipping cream."
"These turned out fabulous...and I was surprised how simple they were...I took them to euchre and nobody would believe me that they were sugar free...The only thing I did differently is I used a decorating tube with a metal tip and poked a hole in the side and squirted the filling in.."
"I made this for my father in law who just found out he has diabetes and they were a big hit with everyone. I didn't think they would taste that good. Boy was I wrong. lol These were really good. Thank you so much for posting =)"
"These were fantastic! I made them to take to a party and within minutes, they had disappeared. I didn't tell anyone that they were sugar-free until after all of the elclairs had disappeared. No one could believe it- especially the young kids who thought that they had gotten away with consuming massive quantities of sugar."
"If I could give these 10 stars I would! My husband did not believe me that they were sugar free, then he kept saying that I must have bought them and not made them from scratch! These are so good, and so easy to make! Thank you for posting!"
"Very good substitute for the real thing! My diabetic dh & mil love these- they keep asking for more. I didn't care for the topping because it kept running, so next time I will use reduced sugar chocolate frosting. The dough is very light & yummy!"
"I made these yesterday. The filling seemed to need more thickening.....(I will use less liquid next time), so I also cut the amount of liquid in the Topping recipe, and refrigerated them for 2-3 hours before serving them. They turned out good and were enjoyed by all. TKS for the recipe!!"
"These are fantastic! The only changes I made is that I used sf cheesecake pudding for filling and I made half of the recipe Eclairs and the other half cream puffs. I served them at a big family function. My father-inlaw is diabetic, so it was great that everyone could enjoy dessert without feeling left out or having to eat something different. Yummy! I have already decided to serve them at several other events. Thank you so much for sharing :)"
"Being new to cooking, I thought I would butcher this recipe. However, these eclairs were simpler to make then I expected, and turned out AWESOME. I didn't love the sugar-free fat-free chocolate pudding for the topping, so I'll use melted dark chocolate next time instead. I will definitely be making these on many more occassions!"
"Love this recipe!! tweaked a lil tho...(my dad is diabetic)...For the filling, i just made the sugar free pudding as packaged directions, and didnt let it set as much...for the glaze i used unsweetented choclate melted with splenda and almond extract. i sprinkled slivered almonds on after. He loved themmm...almost no sugar!!"
"I would give this six stars if I could. These are amazing. I wouldn't recommend using quinoa or wheat flour, mine didn't rise when I did. Instead of using chocolate pudding for the top, I melted dark chocolate and smothered it on top."
"This is an excellent recipe! Great flavor, no guilt! Thanks."
"This is a great treat, and no guilt! Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks, Jellyqueen, this is a keeper!"
