LeClair spent 10 whole seasons with the Flyers and was part of the infamous Legion of Doom. He racked up 3 seasons of 50+ goals, not to mention the 2 following years of 40+ goals. The left winger would park himself in front of the net, tip incoming shots and fight for rebounds and loose pucks with great effectiveness. Many will refer to these as “garbage goals”, however, goals are goals! LeClair ended his career with 406 goals, 413 assists and 819 points in 967 games.

I do have to mention that LeClair did not start his career in Philadelphia, however, he was drafted by the Montreal Canadians and wound up winning a cup with them in 1993. I’m only mentioning this to satisfy my Montreal Canadian fan boyfriend who tends to point this out to me every time I wear my LeClair jersey.

For the dessert, I’ve taken a spin on a chocolate eclair and added a touch a maple syrup to it since LeClair is a Vermont native. I always get great reviews on this super easy, no bake cake. I made a s’mores version first followed by an ice cream version for the super bowl. The possibilities are endless with this one!

Ingredients:

2 (3.5 ounce) packages of instant vanilla pudding mix

1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

2 1/2 cups of milk

1 box of graham cracker squares

3/4 cup of maple syrup

Chocolate ganache topping:

9 oz of milk chocolate chips

1 cup of heavy cream

 

1.In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend the pudding mix, whipped topping, and milk, & maple syrup.

2. Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking pan. Evenly spread half of the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers.

For the chocolate ganache topping:

Ganache is by far my favorite topping for cupcakes and cakes. It’s easy to make, looks amazing, and compliments any kind of dessert.
1.Over a double broiler, combine chocolate chips and heavy cream over medium heat and whisk until smooth.

2.Pour ganache over graham cracker and pudding layers and smooth over.
