Chocolate graham crackers layered between creamy vanilla custard, topped with chocolate glaze. Very rich and habit forming. Everyone I have made this for has fallen in love with it!

I have made this for years. The only thing I do different is I use French Vanilla Pudding. It is a winner every time!

My family loved this! Instead of making frosting though (it was hot day) I used canned frosting, nuked it for a minute stirring every 20 seconds until it was pourable and poured this directly over the last layer of graham crackers. Do recommend letting this set overnight, the graham crackers need to absorb the pudding since this was better the next day. I also made this in 4 layers 7 1/2 crackers per layer, and used 1/3 of the pudding mix per layer. May 28, 2007
