Eclair cake

Or, as Jack would say, "Declare Cake." This is so very, very easy to make, but make sure you start it a day in advance. And, if you let your kids help mix up the pudding, make sure you use a DEEP bowl because vanilla pudding flying all over the kitchen, while fun in theory, is a mess in reality.

2 small boxes vanilla instant pudding
12 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
1 box chocolate graham crackers
3 c. milk (I used whole to make it extra rich and fattening!)
1 container dark chocolate frosting
powdered sugar (optional)

In a large bowl, combine pudding mixes, whipped topping, and milk. Mix 2 minutes at high speed, or until thick.

Layer a 9x13x2 inch pan in the following way:
-graham crackers
-pudding mixture
-graham crackers
-pudding mixture
-graham crackers.

Refrigerate 2 hours. Use the whole container of frosting, and spread over the entire surface. Refrigerate 24 hours, to allow time for the graham crackers to soften. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
