Eclair Cake

This is one of the easiest desserts I know how to make and is perfect for taking to a potluck dinner. It's so yummy and tastes just like an eclair!

2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
3 cups milk
1 (16 ounce) package graham crackers
1 (16 ounce) can chocolate frosting

In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend the pudding mix, Cool Whip, and milk. Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Evenly spread half of the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers. Spread the frosting over the whole cake up to the edges of the pan. Cover, and chill at least 4 hours before serving.

TIP OF THE DAY: To make frosting easier to spread on a 9 x 13 inch cake that you are planning to leave in the pan, simply place the frosting in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. It easily melts and you can simply pour it on instead of using a knife.
