Taste of Tuesday...Chocolate, yum!

I dont know about you all but one of my favorite things to do during the summer is have s'mores. Now, how can someone as picky as me like all that stuff combined? I'm not sure either :) I will say that I'm not a fan of marshmallow  I eat it in that but if theres too much I pull some off. That leaves the graham crackers and chocolate. Well, what can be done with those two because they are actually good together.

Before I tell you what, I want to mention that I like deserts with a  crust. meaning I cant just have plain ice cream with chocolate sauce. No,  I need a brownie, cookie or something underneath. A warm soft brownie...it sounds so good.

So now onto how graham crackers and chocolate can work together When my mom showed me this I was sold...just a little too much in fact!

Filling:

  • 2 (3.5 oz.) boxes vanilla instant pudding
  • 3 c. milk
  • 1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip
  • Graham crackers (my mom and I usually buy two boxes)



Topping:

  • 1/3 c. cocoa
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1 stick butter (or margarine)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla




Directions: 

  • Mix pudding and milk; beat.  Stir in Cool Whip.  
  • Place a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13" dish. 
  • Spread 1/2 of the pudding mixture over the graham crackers.
  • Repeat with another layer of graham crackers and pudding; then top with a final layer of graham crackers.

To make the topping:

  • Bring cocoa, milk, and sugar to a boil; boil about 1 minute, stirring very frequently
  • Remove from heat and cool one minute.
  • dd butter and vanilla; stir until butter is melted.
  • Pour over the top layer of graham crackers.  
  • Refrigerate over night.
