This is a quick and simple dessert my mama use to make when I was young and I have continued sharing it with my kids. It's delicious.

This cool and creamy no-bake dessert is so good. With all its layers, this version of an eclair cake reminded us of a graham cracker pudding lasagna. The peanut butter was an added flavor we loved and it also protected the crackers from becoming completely soft. A very thin layer of chocolate pudding on top is the perfect touch. If you need a great make-ahead dessert, give this recipe a try. It can really sit overnight to allow the graham crackers to soften. Delicious for a pot luck. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 box
    graham cracker
  • 2 box
    vanilla pudding (large, 5.1 oz each)

How to Make Graham Cracker Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Go ahead and prepare puddings according to package instructions. Prepare vanilla pudding and set aside.
  2. Prepare the chocolate pudding.
  3. Next, spread peanut butter on graham crackers. Place the first layer of graham cracker/peanut butter on the bottom of 9x13 pan (peanut butter side up).
  4. Then spread 1/3 of the vanilla pudding on top of that.
  5. Then spread a layer of Cool Whip (works best if soft) on top of vanilla pudding.
  6. Continue layering in order as above.
  7. Layer until there's just enough room to spread chocolate pudding on top as a finish (use chocolate pudding to top the dessert only).
  8. Crush remaining graham crackers. Sprinkle them over the chocolate pudding for garnish.
  9. Refrigerate 1-2 hrs or until graham crackers are soft.
  10. You can use any flavor graham cracker you wish and honestly whatever flavor pudding you wish. I have used cinnamon crackers with cream cheese pudding and it was great. Whatever you prefer.
  11. You can also make your puddings from scratch with this recipe if it's what you prefer. But that requires more effort and time so this is the quick version.
