- 1 cup crushed butter-flavored crackers (about 30 crackers)
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 4 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 ounces each), crushed

- In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients; set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Chill for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until set (mixture will be thick). Stir in frozen yogurt and 1 cup whipped topping until smooth. Spread over crust.
- Top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Yield: 12-15 servings.

I made this for my boss's birthday because he can sniff out an open butterfinger bar even if it was in Tibet. Instead of frozen reduced fat yogurt I use a premium brand of chocolate ice cream. I always make pudding using half and half instead of milk. The richer the milk the thicker the pudding comes out. So remember it is always important to use at least 4% milk but not 2%, 1% or fat free, then you would have to freeze it to firm up. I don't like the taste of frozen whipped toppings so I always swap them out for home made stabilized whipped cream. I know my version is much richer and certainly more decadent but it's dessert and it should be that way. Foot note: Just because it's richer doesn't mean you need to eat a smaller serving.
I had trouble with mine setting to the firmness displayed in the photo. I guess photos can be deceiving. It tasted okay but would have been better if it was firmer. It seemed a bit costly and made quite a bit for a family dessert as well. It might be good for speacil occasions but then again I would want it firmer. I too was puzzled by the word "chill". Should that word have been freeze until set?
This did not set up for me it was soupy, are you supposed to freeze it?
Ice cream! (As a sub for frozen yogurt)
I used to make this with butter brickle ice cream and toffee bits on top...hard to find the old butter brickle ice cream anymore...
