Chocolate Eclair Cake

I found this really neat recipe the other day while searching for something else.
It isn't made from scratch but I had all the ingredients in my pantry and my boys were asking for a dessert. It was quick and simple and I threw it together after dinner - so that way it had a few hours to set in the fridge before they started asking for a treat!

Chocolate Eclair Cake

2 pkgs. instant vanilla pudding

3 c. milk

1 (8 or 9 oz.) Cool Whip

1 lb. box graham crackers

1 container of chocolate icing

Beat pudding with milk until thick.

Fold in Cool Whip.
Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with crackers.
Put 1/2 pudding mix over crackers.

Layer another cracker layer and top with the rest of the pudding mix.

Then top with another layer of crackers. Cover with icing.

Put in fridge for about 2 hours before serving.

It came delicious!

what a great idea for a quick dessert! Sometimes the simple stuff is the best. My Gran used to make something very close to this. I remember it fondly from my childhood.
