Creamy vanilla pudding, hearty graham crackers, and rich chocolate frosting make this THE MOST awesome dessert. I keep the recipe copied because everyone always wants it when I take it somewhere. The MOST important part of this dessert is waiting about 24 hours to serve it...the crackers need time to absorb the pudding mixture, and it truly makes a difference in the taste if you don't wait!

    I found the chocolate frosting to be a little too rich so the next time I made this recipe I used chocolate pudding for the topping and everyone loved it.

    Very good! Everyone I served it to loved it -especially the kids. It was very sweet so I might omit some of the sugar next time. Extremely easy and I loved being able to make it the day before.

    This recipe is AWESOME! It's exactly like what my mom used to make when I was younger, except no cooking pudding over boiling water!!

    Very good! I would leave out the confectioner's sugar next time to make it less sweet.
