No Bake Eclair Cake

This is not healthy at all but if you want a no bake dessert that is easy and delicious than look no further!  The pudding and graham cracker soften together and create a creamy deliciousness that is then topped with a chocolate frosting!

Adapted from Chef in Training

2 (3.4 oz) packages Vanilla Instant Pudding mix dry
3 cups whole milk
8 or 12 oz. cool whip or homemade whipped cream
2-3 packages graham crackers
1 stick butter
3 Tbsp. milk
3-6 Tbsp. cocoa
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Blend milk and vanilla pudding packets for about 2 minutes. Fold in Cool Whip.
In a 9x13 pan, Layer graham crackers to cover entire bottom of pan. You may need to cut and shape the crackers to fit nicely.
Poor half of pudding/cool whip mixture on top and level.
Put another layer of graham crackers to cover entire surface. Cut and shape crackers accordingly.
Put the second half of pudding/cool whip mixture on top and level.
Put the final layer of graham crackers on top with bumpy side down. This will help the top look more smooth when you go to put the frosting on top. Once again, cut and shape crackers accordingly to avoid pits and cracks.
FOR THE FROSTING: Microwave butter and milk just enough so that they are melted together. You do not need to boil it. Add cocoa and powdered sugar and blend together.  Spread over top of graham crackers and smooth out nicely.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours so that graham crackers have time to soften.
