  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • microwave


  • 6.8 ounces instant vanilla pudding mix 2 (3.4 ounce packages)
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • cups milk
  • 8 ounces cool whip 1 container
  • 1 pound graham crackers 1 package
  • 16 ounces chocolate frosting 1 container


  • Mix the pudding, eggnog and milk in a bowl. Blend together for about 2 minutes then fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with non-stick spray. Place a layer of whole graham crackers on the bottom. (I had to break some graham crackers in half to fit along the edges).
  • Top the graham crackers with 1/2 the pudding mixture.
  • Cover pudding with another layer of graham crackers, and then top with remaining pudding and another layer of whole graham crackers.
  • Carefully spread the frosting on the graham crackers. (Microwave frosting in the container for about 30 seconds and it will be a lot easier to spread)
  • Chill over night or for at least 8 hours.


  • It also tastes delicious when you let it sit in the fridge for an extra hour or two, because the graham crackers soften up, and have the best texture.
