Super Easy Layered Dessert


Layered dessert
This is a scrumptious dessert my aunt used to make whenever I visited her in Georgia, about 15 years ago. From the first time I put this dessert in my mouth I could not get enough of it. It is SO easy to make, but tastes like a million bucks! Recently, I have seen this recipe in magazines...they call it "Tiramisu dessert". This one's for you Meena foi :)

Ingredients:
1 box cinnamon graham crackers
1 Jell-O (instant) vanilla pudding mix (fat-free or sugar-free, your choice)
8oz tub thawed Cool Whip
1 tub chocolate frosting

Directions:
1) Make the pudding (follow directions on the box)
2) Once the pudding has set FOLD about half of the Cool Whip into the pudding, once mixed add the rest of the Cool Whip and fold it in
3) Place the pudding/Cool Whip mixture in the fridge
4) Line a 8x11.5 baking dish with one layer of cinnamon graham crackers
5) Add a layer of pudding/Cool Whip mix (spread evenly)
6) Repeat steps 4 and 5
7) The very last (top) layer should be crackers
8) Place the tub of frosting in the microwave for about 30 seconds...you don't want to liquefy it...PLEASE make sure you remove the foil seal BEFORE putting the frosting in the microwave
9) Pour about half a cup of frosting on the graham cracker layer and spread with a butter knife. (I don't like a thick layer of frosting but if you're a chocolate lover go ahead and add more)
10) Cover the baking dish with Saran wrap...then foil.
11) Place the baking dish in the refrigerator...the dessert will be ready to eat the NEXT day, the graham crackers will be nice and soft.
