Mom always made the icebox cake for us when we were kids.She made it with cooking pudding. You can add bananas or pineapple and you can top it off with whipped cream. I always like it this way the way mommy made it. Once the pudding melts into the graham crackers it just melts in your mouth.

Spread the chocolate or vanilla on top of crackers (save a little of each pudding for the last layers. Cover with another layer of crackers, Spread the remaining of the pudding on top follow by another layer of crackers. Now put the saved puddings of vanilla and chocolate making a swirl on top.
