  • Reviews

  • “This dessert was very easy to make and was a hit with my family. I used Chocolate Fudge frosting and it looked just like the dark chocolate you find on eclairs and tasted great.”

  • “MMMMMMMM, YUMMMMYYYY…this was delicious!!It made quite a bit so everyone was very happy to take some home.I though the graham crackers would get soggy, and they were just right.Will definitely make again.”

  • “I’ve made this desert for years.It is better with French Vanilla Pudding.Even better the next day.”

  • “I crushed some of the graham crackers, mixed with some butter, pressed in the bottom and up the sides of my pan and baked for a few minutes to make a “crust”.Then I followed the directions. Oops, I forgot, I also used the crushed gr. crackers to “fill in” the little gaps around the edges and in between on the graham cracker layer.”

  • “This dessert is very easy to make and tastes GREAT!!!”

  • “I recently made this for a dinner party.It is totally awesome!Everybody loved it.It is now one of my favorite recipes and I will make it again and again!I love how easy it is!!!Thanks!”

  • “I also used graham cracker crumbs/butter as a crust rather than the actual graham crackers.Used banana cream instant pudding instead of vanilla…very good.”

  • “I just made this yet again for our 4th of July cookout later today.I think it’s the third or fourth time I’ve made it for a party, and it’s been very well received every time. I have always used light whipped topping, fat-free sugar-free pudding, and skim or 1% milk, and it’s still decadent.I do use regular frosting, because the low sugar stuff just doesn’t compare.I put the frosting in the microwave to get it pourable – 30 seconds, stir, 15 more seconds, then pour over the graham crackers.You end up with a nice smooth top this way, and it sets back up in about 15 minutes. Just make sure you get ALL of the foil top off of the frosting first, so you don’t end up with a fireworks display in your microwave!”

  • “This is one of my absolute favorite desserts!Great to take to a potluck and always a clean pan to take home!Thanks for posting the recipe.”

  • “great recipe ! i used french vanilla pudding from one of the reviews and the fudge frosting. this dessert is definitely a keeper. so simple and quick and everyone loved it.”

  • “Can’t say much more than others have, but this is really terrific.Easy do ahead dessert with a taste that can’t be beat.Thank you for posting this.It will be used many times.”

  • “I make this all the time. This is something that once your friends taste it, when they have a party, instead of saying “bring a dessert” they request that you make this. Instead of using the frosting I make a chocolate ganache, using semi sweet chocolate chips and heavy cream. Just heat over a double boiler and pour over the top of the last layer of graham crakers. And if I don’t have the heavy cream I used half and half which I always have in the fridge for coffee.”

  • “Does not need another review but this was soooo yummy! Next I plan to get some sugar free pudding, topping, and frosting to make for my diabetic mother. She is going to love it.”

  • “So yummy.My parents came over one night for dinner and I wasn’t off in time to really make dessert so I whipped this up in about 5 minutes and stuck it into the fridge.By the time we were done eating and doing dishes it was ready.Perfect because it looked like I put some time into the layers ect.My boyfriends mother loved it so much she asked for the recipe!!!! VERY GOOD”

  • “I made this dessert with the french Vanilla pudding, I really enjoyed everything but the topping It was just a little to “rich” next time I will try it with Chocolate whip cream I think that will give it a nice touch. I let it set for a couple of hours and the graham crackers were perfect. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “Made as is and was a huge hit at my office. We love it! Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Oh yummy!I made this for some friends that came to town and we all loved it.I actually was using up some graham crackers I had open so for the first two layers I used regular graham crackers but for the top layer I used chocolate graham crackers and it worked perfectly.I also used Fudge frosting and it set up so nice.:This is a repeat recipe for sure.Its easy, its cheap and it soooo good.THank you for sharing with us.”

  • “This was an easy and delicious dessert , as i could notfind pudding mix from pakistan so i followed the recipe of vanilla pudding mix recipe no. 159905 by Charbear, the pudding did not set as thick it a little liquid as i had assumed it to be like in photo of this dessert . Can anybody tell why it happened ? Although we enjoyed the flavor .but if someone cantell me the recipe of pudding mix.thanks for posting . but i want to try with an authentic recipe of vanilla pudding mix.”

  • “This was pretty good.I made this for my husband and I for a quick and easy dessert but found that the layer of icing was just way too sweet.I think I may heat it in the microwave a bit more next time and drizzle over the dessert with a spoon so that there isn’t a solid layer.Over all, though, a definite do-again!Who would have thought that cool whip, vanilla pudding and graham crackers would taste great together?!”
