  • 1 3.4 oz. package of chocolate pudding (use instant, NOT Cook & Serve)
  • 1¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • 1 tbsp. granulated white sugar
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • Cool whip
  • Shaved baker’s chocolate - semi sweet


  1. Mix together the sugar, graham crackers and melted butter. Press into the bottom ¼ of 4 6oz mason jars.
