This was very easy to make but I was not impressed. I even used homemade fudge sauce as the topping. I guess we just find mushy graham crackers very unappealing. Sorry won't be making this again. Read More

Nice and light dessert . Although I used the ingredients for this recipe I did make modifications for prep, serving size and refrigeration time. I halved recipe, used a standard sized loaf pan. Using kitchen shears, I did cut some of the graham crackers to fit the pan. I dipped the graham crackers into milk before placing in the pan to soften up slightly. I did not put the chocolate on the dessert until after it set up. Instead of refrigerating for 4-24 hours, I froze for 2 hours. Drizzled chocolate sauce upon serving. I used french vanilla pudding, next time I will use cheesecake flavor. I think I will also add a cooled layer of chocolate upon the second graham cracker layer, then refrigerate until firm, then add the next layer of pudding and top layer of graham cracker. Read More

Maybe it's me but this seemed like a lot of cool whip. Don't get me wrong, it was tasy, but my mouth felt way too full of cool whip. I think that 8 oz would have suited better. Thank you :) Read More

This has long been a family favorite at our house. Super easy to make the taste is very similar to an eclair. Of note letting the cake sit over night is a must. The cake is so much better when the crackers get soggy and mushy. Read More

This was very easy to make. The hard party was waiting the 12 hours to eat it. Everyone loved it and even went back for seconds. The best part was I made it lowfat. I used low fat graham crackers fat free milk and light cool whip. Next time I'll try using sugarfree pudding. Read More

The only thing that could make this recipe better would be to lessen the calories. I tried using Jello Sugar Free Pudding and Sugar Free Cool Whip. Because of the frosting it didn't taste any different and my family didn't even notice.:-) Read More

You can uses all fat free/sugar free products and still tastes GREAT! I used a homemade frosting. I had all the ingedients and am not crazy about tub frosting. PERFECT! 15 servings =WW 4pts if you use all FF SF ingredients. Frosting included. Layers should be grahams 1/2 of the pudding grahams rest of the pudding top w/grahams. I flipped top layer over so a THIN layer of pudding would be on very top you'll need to even out the pudding on top with a butter knife. Do this before frosting with chocolate. This helps to soften grahams. ENJOY. IT's GREAT! The frosting is not FF or SF mix: 3T melted butter with 1/4c Hershey's cocoa then add 1 1/2c powdered sugar 2t corn syrup 2t vanilla 2T milk mix. SPREAD on top. This is JUST like eclair frosting. Read More

Simple to put together and absolutely delicious. A little messy though so I wouldn't recommend this if you are looking for something that "looks" good. Definitely needs 24 hours in the fridge before serving. Read More
