No Bake Boston Cream Pie Dessert


I like to give credit where credit is due when I post a recipe.  Unfortunately, I have looked at so many recipes on Facebook and Pinterest lately, that I can’t remember where I saw this one!   I jotted down the ingredients and instructions and totally forgot to write down who posted it.  I did want to let you know this is not my recipe.  It is, however,  simple and delicious!!

You will need:

1 box of Honey Graham Crackers

2 boxes of French Vanilla Instant Pudding

1 -9 0z. tub of Cool Whip

3 Cups of Whole Milk

1 Can of Chocolate Frosting

In a bowl ( I use my Kitchen Aid),  mix the 2 boxes of French Vanilla Instant Pudding with 3 cups of whole milk until it thickens.  Add the 9 oz. tub of Cool Whip and mix thoroughly.

In the bottom of  a 9×13 baking dish, put a layer of the Honey Graham Crackers.  Spread a layer of the pudding mixture on top of the graham crackers.  Keep alternating layers and make sure you end with a layer of graham crackers on top.  I had 3 layers of graham crackers and 2 layers of pudding when I did this one.

Spread the tub of chocolate frosting on the top layer of graham crackers and that is it!  We had to taste this as soon as it was finished.  The graham crackers are still crunchy at this point so it was a little difficult to eat with a spoon.  I would recommend leaving it in the fridge for several hours so the graham crackers have enough time to soften up.   We left ours in the fridge overnight and had some after lunch the next day.  It is absolutely yummy!!  I’m usually not one to eat Boston Cream Pie, but this dessert was so simple to make I had to give it a try.

This is what it looked like when we cut it while the graham crackers were still crunchy.  It cuts much easier (and neater!) after they have softened up.   If you’re looking for a simple dessert that will be a crowd pleaser, definitely give this one a try!
