Pour remaining pudding over crackers
Add final layer of crackers on top
Remove foil from frosting ctn and place in microwave for 30 to 40 seconds to thin

I make this and take it to the fish fries we have at our church. I never lasts longer then 15 minutes.n
When they see me coming in with this it's all over but the lip licking.

Use french vanilla pudding. Really good.

Amanda Price said...

Yes, french vanilla is good! I've also tried cheesecake flavor and it was good also!

How about adding sliced bananas?

I bet bananas would be good.

I made this for my quilting group and very little was left. Another gal made the same desert and hers was also gone. Love it. Marie

When I made this, it turned out mushy.......we don't like mushy. Is there a substitution for the graham crackers or the pudding? What else can I do to keep it from becoming mushy?

Amanda Price said...

Joan, the only advice I have is to eat it right when you make it so the crackers don't have a chance to get soft.

Denise Jennings said...

Joan, maybe you should make your pudding thicker.leaving it in the fridge overnight will soften the graham crackers soft no matter what you do.

Do you use a 16 oz of whip cream?

Amanda Price said...

A carton of cool whip is actually 8 oz. Hope that helps!

Could you use cream cheese instead of the pudding?

I've been making this for years. I use French vanilla pudding, 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 2 containers of thawed whipped cream. It is indeed quite yummy!

Amanda Price said...

YES! Cream Cheese sounds delicious. I want to try that!

I'm not sure how that would turn out, but I think it's worth trying. I don't think it would taste bad for sure. It might just have a different texture.
