Chocolate Eclair

Today my husband and I dropped my niece off at the airport to make her way back to college after spending her spring break with us. We had a great time, and I think we were all sad for her to leave. And sadness calls for something sweet, right?

Is today’s boozy creation dessert? Or is it a jello shot? I have no idea! Either way, this should be perfect for an after-dinner treat (and curing a few blues) and was inspired by chocolate eclairs which are oh-so tasty. My only regret is not replicating the flaky crust. Can’t be perfect all the time, right?
