For a quick 'frosting' for the topping, you can also use a tub of fudge ready to spread frosting! Just stir well, and carefully frost the top layer of graham crackers! Delicious!

I have had this receipe myself for sometime. My husband loves it so much that it has become know in our family as "Robert's Dessert". The only problem is finding the Choco-bake sometimes. Also, it works better if you just melt the butter and mix the topping ingredients together instead of heating up the corn syrup and butter.

If you can't find Nestle Choco-Bake, the company suggests that 1 envelope of ChocoBake can be substituted with: 1 oz/1 square of our unsweetened baking bar 2 oz/ 2 square of our semi-sweet baking bar, also reduce the sugar in your recipe by 2 Tbsp. 2 oz. (1/3 cup) of our semi-sweet morsels, also reduce the sugar in your recipe by 2 Tbsp. 3 Tbsp. of our cocoa powder, also add 1 Tbsp. butter/shortening to your recipe
