Notes

Make It Your Own: While all of the ingredients in this recipe perfectly complement each other, one slight variation may be worth considering if you are a chocolate fiend. Instead of using the Honey Maid Honey Grahams, swap them out for the chocolate-flavored ones to make your éclairs extra decadent. 

Ingredients

  • package vanilla pudding, such as Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 2  Cups  cold milk, divided
  • One  8-ounce tub Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
  • 22  Honey Maid Honey Grahams
  • 1/2  Cup  unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4  Cup  butter
  • 1 1/2  Cup  powdered sugar

Directions

Beat the pudding mix and 1 ¾ cups of the milk in large bowl with a whisk for 2 minutes. Stir in the Cool Whip. Layer about 1/3 of the grahams and ½ the Cool Whip mixture in 13-by-9-inch pan, breaking the grahams as necessary to fit; repeat layers. Top with the remaining grahams.

Microwave the chocolate and butter in medium microwaveable bowl on high for 1 ½ minutes, stirring after 1 minutes. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the sugar and remaining milk and stir until well blended. Immediately spread over the grahams. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
