  • 2 3.9- ounce boxes instant chocolate pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • 8 ounces frozen dessert topping thawed
  • 14.4 ounces chocolate graham crackers
  • 16 ounces chocolate fudge frosting


  • In a medium-size bowl, mix both boxes of chocolate pudding and milk with a whisk until it begins to thicken.
  • Add dessert topping and mix with a spoon until it is well combined and the color is even. Set aside.
  • Line a 9 X 13 pan with a layer of chocolate graham crackers, break the crackers as necessary to fill in large gaps.
  • Spread half of the pudding mixture over the layer of crackers.
  • Place another layer of crackers over the pudding mixture in the pan. Again, breaking the crackers as necessary to fill in large gaps.
  • Place the last half of graham crackers over the pudding. The top layer may require more crackers than the other layers depending on the type of pan used.
  • Heat the frosting in a microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Continue until frosting is a pourable consistency.
  • Pour frosting over the top layer of graham crackers as evenly as possible. It should spread on its own, but if it does not just use a butter knife or an off-set spatula to cover all of the graham crackers.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 12 hours for best results.
