Tempt Your Tummy.               Things I Think About.               Project Time.

My go to dessert.

Looking for a great treat to take to all those picnics and church dinners this Summer?  Look no further.  This is it.

And it's great.  And easy.  And cheap.

And.... you just can't beat that.

Here's what you need:

1 box of graham crackers
2 boxes of instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 container cool whip - 8oz.
1 container chocolate frosting

Mix together instant pudding and milk until thick. 

While the pudding is mixing, layer graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

Cover graham crackers with a layer of pudding, then add another layer of graham crackers.   Then more pudding and end with graham crackers.

Carefully microwave a can of chocolate frosting in the microwave.  This is not carefully.  This was being lazy and pressing 1-1-1 and then forgetting about it.

Pour icing carefully over graham crackers and smooth with knife.

Cover with foil and chill in fridge for at least two hours.  It's even better to make and let sit overnight.  The graham crackers get nice and soft.  It tastes like an eclair.

This recipe can be mixed up lots of ways - different pudding types, chocolate graham crackers, or even add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter to the vanilla pudding.  Yum.

So now you have your go to dish for the next potluck. 

Unless I'm going to be there.

Then it's mine.   And you'll have to make something else.

I'm linking up today with Raising Homemakers. and WFMW.

This is also one of my go to desserts. I sometimes use french vanilla pudding, but i sometimes use Cheesecake flavored. I had this dessert at a friends house recently and I thought it was the best I had ever had. She used the chocolate graham crackers and she melted milk chips and spread them on top. It was so good!

That should say milk CHOCOLATE chips.

Oh my goodness! Cheesecake would be the best. But I am a cheesecake junkie.

Yum!! I've had this before (Jennifer's recipe) and I'm glad you reposted because I lost it, and you are right, it is perfect for the upcoming cookouts and potlucks at church! :)
