Step 1

In large bowl, mix pudding and milk according to package directions.

Step 2

Fold in whipped topping.

Step 3

In a 9x13 pan, layer the bottom completely with graham crackers. Top with half of the pudding mixture. Place another layer of graham crackers on top of the pudding. Top with the remaining pudding mixture. Place one more layer of graham crackers on top. (You should have 3 layers of graham crackers total.)

Step 4

Heat the frosting in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, stirring until smooth and pourable, but not too hot. Pour over the final graham cracker layer and chill until ready to use.

Step 5

Note: Heating the frosting not only makes it easier to use, but also gives your dessert a nice, smooth sheen! Also, feel free to cut the milk down to 2.5 cups if you want a 'firmer' dessert. I like mine fluffy.
