"I made these today and we love them. They're a nice cold treat change from ice cream. Ingredient wise, I made them exactly as directed, but I can see where the combinations could be endless. Instead of filling and wrapping them immediately, I put 24 graham halves on a lined cookie sheet, filled them all, put the tops on them and put the whole pan in the freezer. Once they were solidly frozen, they were a breeze to wrap individually."

"This was great, didn't have any graham crackers (don't care for them anyway), so I used chocolate chip cookies instead. I also used about 5 oz. of cream cheese (had it on hand) and reduced the amount of milk for a creamier consistency. Will definitely make again."

"I first tried this exactly as written and decided to see if I could firm up the filling a bit ..... Decreased the milk by 1/2 cup and added 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese. I whipped the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, then added the Cool Whip to the cream cheese. When the pudding/milk mixture has set up, fold in the cream cheese/Cool Whip mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips last. Refrigerate for approximately one hour prior to assembling the sandwiches. Results in a thicker consistency which allows for easier assembly and a creamier texture to the 'ice cream' filling. Also increases the yield to about 34 sandwiches. (Have tried regular cream cheese and Neufchâtel with no discernible difference to the end result.). ~~~~ Kids and adults just love these!"

"Very light and refreshing! My meeting group loved them! I kept the pudding mixture refrigerated while I was wrapping up the sandwiches......made 6 at a time so the mixture wouldn't get too warm. Not so sloppy fixing them like this. Good stuff!"

"I use chocolate graham crackers, line a 8x8 pan cover with well chilled filling, top with more grahams. Then, freeze. It is easy to slice along the edges of the grahams once it is well frozen. Using sugar free or lowfat is fine, it is still a yummy easy to make treat."

"I haven't tried this yet but gave it 5 stars because I know my family will love it. I'm also going to try it with smashed Malted Milk Balls. Just put some in a ziplock bag and smash with a hammer. (Some use a rolling pin but I like the hammer better.) Can't wait until tomorrow to make these. Thank you."

"These look & sound so yummy! I may even use just a quarter of the cracker on the bottom/top to make it easier for little hands to handle. I am always looking for fun homemade & semi homemade snacks for my two kids & the kiddos in my daycare!! Will try some reduced fat & sugar ingredients as well! Thanks for sharing!"

"A great snack for those of us on diets, especially if made with reduced or fat free products! Change the flavors by using different pudding and whipped topping flavors! So MANY variations are available for these!"

"This sounds yummy. The amount of fat and calories can be cut down by substituting the ingredients with reduced or fat free products. I'm going to make this, as I'm always looking for low-calorie snack ideas. I, too, think that freezing the filling would make it easier to handle. Thank you for a yummy sounding recipe."

"We made these as kids and always had tons of fun. They can be a little messy when filling, so we often would freeze the filling, then put it on the crackers and wrap. These are a delicious treat on a summer day!"
