"Yum yum yummy and so very easy to make! Made it for the 1st time last year for Thanksgiving and it's become my family's new favorite dessert. Two family members have already asked me "if I'm going to make it again this year"."

"This is the best and easiest recipe ever! But I can't serve it without sprinkles on top to make it pretty. Each time, I vary the pudding and frosting: Chocolate Fudge pudding and frosting, White Chocolate Pudding layer, Chocolate Fudge layer, Fudge frosting. Right now, I'm using all Pumpkin Spice pudding with Cream Cheese frosting. Makes a lot and is good for company."

"Excellent dessert. I did not put the middle layer of graham crackers in and used homemade chocolate frosting."
