    Do you whip the Cool Whip or use it thawed?

    This is amazing!! Refrig for 24hrs prior to serving for best taste, but then again it might not make it 24hrs especially in my fridge!!

    The first time my mother-in-law made this, I knew i had to have the recipe! it is fabulous--everyone loves it. If you need a quick fix, use some prepared rich chocolate frosting and it will do---although the choc. glaze is the best!

    SO simple, SO delish!! Can't believe I only recently heard of this from a friend. I highly recommend refigerating it for at least 24 hours before serving. The crackers will be softer and more cake-like. For the icing, I use 1/2 cup cocoa powder in place of the chocolate (all other ingredients same). Mix cocoa and powdered sugar, melt the butter and stir into dry mix w/milk, then add syrup and vanilla. Pours well.

    I've been making this recipe for 35 years. It is a family favorite. In fact I just made it today at the request of my family. My children were raised on this cake, being 1 & 4 yrs. old when I first obtained the recipe from a woman who brought it to a church potluck supper. :)

    My family and I definitely enjoyed the recipe and it was gone in a day! Thanks for a quick and easy recipe. I did substitute the flavor of pudding for reg Vanilla and used a tub frosting (BC Whipped Milk Chocolate) and it was delicious, easy and not too sweet.

    Phenomenal dessert that I can't stay out of. This is top quality and company perfect dessert. Next time I am going to use this recipe as a basis but use vanilla wafers in place of the grahams and banana pudding in place of the french vanilla. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.

    Made this on christmas day...so wonderful and easy! Instead of the chocolate glaze listed here, I simply used a pre-made container of milk chocolate frosting and warmed it up in the microwave for super easy spreading.....thank you for posting!
