I came across this and wanted to make this for my family as some are diabetic.

Sugar Free Chocolate Eclairs

Dough
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
Vanilla filling
1 1/4 cups cold nonfat milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (1 1/2 ounce) packages sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup fat-free cool whip
Chocolate topping
1 1/2 cups cold nonfat milk
1 (1 1/2 ounce) packages sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
or
Chocolate glaze:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dough: In a saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil and add flour all at once, stirring until a smooth ball forms.
Remove from the heat: let stand for 5 minutes and add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition: continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
Transfer to a resealable plastic bag, seal, and cut a 1" hole in one corner of the bag.
Pipe eight 3 1/2" logs onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 450F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 400F and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until golden brown.
Transfer to a wire rack and immediately put a slit in each to allow steam to escape; cool and carefully cut off tops.
Set tops aside and remove soft dough from the inside with a fork.
Vanilla filling: In a mixing bowl, beat milk, vanilla, and pudding on low speed for 2 minutes or until thickened, fold in whipped topping and set aside.
Chocolate frosting: In another mixing bowl, beat milk and chocolate pudding for 2 minutes or until thickened.
or:
Chocolate glaze:In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla.
Spread warm glaze over top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.



Spoon vanilla filling into eclairs, replace tops and frost with chocolate topping.
