Chocolate Eclair Cake

Happy Valentines Day! Here is a perfect dessert to make for your loved ones tonight! I made it for family over the weekend and it was  HUGE hit - so delicious! But, really, who can turn down chocolately goodness like this? This would also make a great potluck pleaser as long as you have someplace cool to store it up until serving time! I made an Eclair Torte about this time last year, which was a little labor intensive, but TOTALLY worth it! This cake is not quite so much work, and still TOTALLY worth it! :) I found this recipe over at Cookie Madness - but made a few changes of my own to it :)


1 (3.4 oz) box of Instant Vanilla Pudding
2 c. Milk
1 (8 oz) tub Cool Whip
1/2 a box Graham Crackers or however many you need to make 4 layers
1 c. Chocolate Frosting


Beat together pudding mix and milk for about 2 minutes until pudding starts to thicken. Fold in the tub of whipped topping.
Break the graham crackers into squares and lay them across the bottom of an 8 inch baking dish. You’ll need to break some of them to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread the pudding mix across the graham crackers. Layer on more graham crackers and more pudding mix twice so that you have a total of 3 layers of graham crackers and three layers of pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers.
Soften the frosting and pour over the top. Chill for at least four hours (preferably longer) or until ready to eat.
