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!
This looks so easy and so yummy! I have so many recipes that I have jotted down and have no idea where I got them from! That was before I was a blogger. Now I have to be sure to remember where I got it from!
Thanks, Dee! I know, I feel terrible that I can’t remember where I saw it. I always want to give credit to the person that came up with it and shared it with everyone.
This is one of my family’s favorite desserts. It’s also great for taking to a potluck dinner!
Hi, Linda! I agree, this is something delicious and easy to take along to a gathering. I love how simple it is to make, too! Thanks for reading! 🙂
My best friend’s mom used to make this when we were kids. OMG it was my favorite dessert of all time. I think I have to make it now this week sometime!
Hi! Hope you enjoy it as much now as you did when you were a kid!! Thanks so much for reading and following my blog! 🙂
I can’t wait to make it!
Awesome even though the frosting was a little sweet. Great receipe.
Thank you, Brenda!
One thing that makes this easier is to microwave the frosting tub for 30-45 seconds (until it is pourable). Stir and pour it on top, it will harden like a glaze when refrigerated.
Great tip! Thanks so much, Dana!
I need to make 200 servings (like bite size) for my daughter’s state fair project on Massachusetts. I was thinking to prepare all layers except frosting in pan, and scoop into individual cups and then add frosting. How many pans do you think I need?
Hint: microwave the chocolate frosting for about 40 seconds, then pour over graham crackers, makes it much easier to spread.
Thank you for the tip, TJ!!
Do you use the Small or large instant pudding box?
I use the small box of pudding.
Thanks for reading!
