    I have made this one many times and it is an awesome cake. It's a very easy recipe and to make it even easier I don't make my chocolate frosting from scratch I buy a container of chocolate frosting and I microwave till it is pourable. I do it in small increments so as not to burn it. I then pour it on top so it covers the whole top and is nice and smooth. Refrigerate and eat. Thanks April for reminding me about this one.

    Laura, I make mine the same way , but a day ahead so the graham crackers are always soft.
    April, this is one of my all time favs! I used to make it when I had a diner and always ran out, no matter how much I made! lol
