Happy July everyone! Wow can you believe June is already gone and we are well into July? I think I blinked and school was out and I'm here! I love cool, yummy treats in the summer and this is one that I think you will love.....Not only is it delicious but oh my gosh, well it can't get much easier to make. It's also a fun treat to let your children help you make...I hope you enjoy it and are enjoying your summer:-)
2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 cups milk
1 (16 ounce) package graham cracker squares
1 (16 ounce) package prepared chocolate frosting
In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend the pudding mix, whipped topping, and milk.
Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Evenly spread half of the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with a final layer of graham crackers.
Spread the frosting over the whole cake up to the edges of the pan. Cover, and chill at least 4 hours before serving.
The frosting will be easier to spread if the cake is covered and chilled for about 30 minutes before spreading. You can also add nuts to the top too.
I have made this thousands of times and the recipes are available in almost any cookbook or online recipe site. This one I got from Allrecipes.com. If you want to check out the reviews and comments, here is the original recipe submitted Eclair Cake.
Enjoy and let me know if you have made this too!

Happy Wednesday everyone......Wow I can't believe it's already the midweek.....My Sons are on spring break this week and I know it's flying by for them. Well at least summer is in their sights now........Hope you're having a wonderful week and some springlike weather...Ours had been a bit dreary but pretty Sunshine is back today.....
With warmer weather in mind, I thought I would share this oh so yummy Grape Salad recipe. Yes it says Salad but it's more of a covered dish supper or cookout dessert recipe. You can mix the grapes you use too, whatever you find yummy at your market....I love Aldi's grapes by King Fresh if you have one nearby. They are always delicious and so reasonably priced. Enjoy!
8 cups Grapes
8 ounces Sour Cream
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
De-stem and wash grapes. Mix Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, and Sugar together until smooth. Add the grapes. Then sprinkle Pecans and Brown Sugar on top!
You can also make this with low fat cream cheese and sour cream too. Some recipes also add a touch of vanilla. Pretty in a glass bowl and done in layers.
