Good Eating Monday: Chocolate Eclair Refrigerator Cake!

 If you've been keeping up with my blog, you know we've had quite the adventure dealing with my 22 year old car!
It wasn't fixable, so we donated it to Good Will and brought home a new Kia Soul to replace it. This was something we were planning on anyway later this year, but my car quitting just moved that plan up a few months!
It drives nice, is roomy interior, seat and steering column are fully adjustable & has great driving visibility all around!  It's dark silver.


Today's Good Eating Recipe is Chocolate Eclair Refrigerator Cake!
(It can also be called "Pie," but since it's in a 9 x 13 pan, it's really a graham cracker layer cake!)
With warming temperatures this is makes a great easy no-bake dessert for any occasion!
Be sure you make this a day in advance, because it needs to sit in the frig over-night!

Chocolate Eclair Refrigerator Cake:

Ingredients:
1 Box Honey Graham Crackers
1 Large Box Vanilla Instant Pudding
3 Cups Milk  
1 8oz Container Whipped Topping
1 Can Ready-Made Chocolate Frosting 
Directions:
In bowl combine pudding with milk & stir until thickened. Fold in 8 oz of whipped topping. Layer a 9 x 13 pan with graham crackers.
Put 1/2 of pudding mix over top & spread. Layer with another layer of graham crackers. Top with remaining pudding mix & spread. Top with a final layer of graham crackers, then spread this top layer of crackers with frosting.  Refrigerator overnight. Cut & serve.
****
You'll have ready-made frosting left-over, since this cake won't need the whole canister. Just buy extra grahams & make chocolate graham-cracker layer cookies cookies with the left over frosting...
OR
...make a smaller quantity of your own frosting with 1 to 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, plus enough additional Tbsp of water to make it the thickness you want. (You can also replace some of the water with a little melted butter & a tad of vanilla for a richer frosting!)
****
Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
