Luscious Layers

There is this great little restaurant in a town south of ours back home in UT that is called Daltons.  The first time I ate there was with my in-laws, and I have eaten there many times since with my husband. They have the ultimate comfort food there.  Dishes like chicken fried steak,  the best prime rib you will ever eat,  and all of there meals come with a great little salad and some yummy sides to choose from. Gosh, just thinking about this place is making me so hungry! 

Anyways, the thing that always keeps me coming back for more, is there dessert!!!! Wow, do they have good desserts or what! They have the best pumpkin crumble bars, amazing cheesecakes, but one of our favorites is their Luscious Layers.  It's graham crackers layered with delicious pudding then topped off with a homemade chocolate sauce! YUM! It seriously is so good!  This recipe is great cause it serves a bunch of people so it's great for all those upcoming summer get-together's that are to be had.

Recipe:
3-4 pkgs. of Graham Crackers
1 (4oz) packet of Instant Vanilla Pudding
1 (4oz) packet of Instant Cheesecake Pudding
4 cups Cold Milk
8 oz cool whip
1/3 cup un-sweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 stick (8tbsp.) butter
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine both packages of puddings together with the 4 cups of cold milk and whisk together till it becomes a thick consistency. (about 3-5 minutes).  Once the pudding is all set up, fold in the cool whip.  

In a 9x13 pan layer the graham crackers, then pudding, and repeat till there are 3 layers of pudding and finish with a layer of graham crackers.

Next, bring the cocoa, sugar, butter, and milk to a boil over medium heat for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Pour the chocolate sauce over the top of the graham crackers. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
