WFMW: Summer Dessert

This week's theme for Works for Me Wednesday is "recipes". Here is a yummy recipe that I made yesterday for company. It is easy and doesn't require much effort, but it does require some time in the fridge. So, with a little planning you can have a tasty dessert ready for tonight's bbq!

Zebra Cake

Box of chocolate graham crackers

2 small boxes of instant cheesecake pudding

2 cups milk

1 cup sweetened, condensed milk

1 small container of cool whip


1/4 cup milk

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup white sugar

dash of salt

2 T butter

1 t vanilla

In a mixer: combine the cheesecake pudding, mik and sweetened, condensed milk. Fold in the cool whip. Beat for two minutes.

In a buttered 9X13, place a layer of chocolate graham crackers on the bottom. Top with half the pudding mixture. Spread another layer of graham crackers and the other half of the pudding mixture. Place a final layer of chocolate graham crackers over the pudding.

In a saucepan, over medium heat combine 1/4 cup milk, cocoa powder, sugar and dash of salt. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute while whisking. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla. Spread over the graham cracker and pudding layers. Refrigerate overnight. (We ate ours after 6 hours in the fridge, but making this the day before would be great.)

That looks really good!
Hey, I tried the Summer Peach and Tomato salad this week. All I can tell you is...yum! Okay, I can tell you something else. It DOES taste even better the next day. So try to sneak a serving into the fridge for yourself. I like it so much I'm making it for my lunch today--with a nectarine, since I'm out of peaches.
This one's a winner, for sure!
