Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Need to make a dessert lickety split? I'll bet you have the ingredients for Chocolate Eclair Dessert. It is so easy ( you don't bake it or even need to pull out the mixer) to make and is really delicious . . .and it lasts several days in your fridge.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert
Whole Graham Crackers
2 small packages french vanilla instant pudding
3 cups milk
8 oz. Cool Whip

Whip (with a whisk) the pudding the milk together until thickened. Fold in the Cool Whip. In the bottom of a 9x13 pan (I have a tupperware one with a lid, which is perfect for this since it doesn't need to be baked) put a layer of whole graham crackers. Break them as necessary, and like a puzzle, fit them in to cover the bottom. Pour on half of the pudding mixture. Then layer another layer of graham crackers. Then pour on other half of the pudding mixture and spread to smooth. Put on another layer of crackers.
If you're in a hurry, spread canned chocolate frosting on the top of the graham crackers. Or make a simple chocolate frosting:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cube butter
3 T. cocoa powder
3 T. hot milk (just heat for a few seconds in the microwave)
Mix until smooth and spread immediately on the top layer of crackers. Refrigerate the dessert for several hours, cut it squares and serve. Keep leftovers covered in the fridge.
