Chocolate Pistachio Ice Box Cake

This is such a simple, yet delicious dessert. And it is perfect for summer! If you are looking for something quick and not wanting to bake anything, this is your answer. 

I came up with this by combing two of my favorite desserts: My mom's watergate cake and chocolate eclair cake. And it was a huge hit!

Ingredients
2 pkgs pistachio pudding mix (instant)
3 cups milk
1 tub cool whip
(or 2 cups whipping cream and 1/4 cup sugar)
chocolate graham crackers

Make the two packs of pudding using the three cups of milk. Put in fridge for about 5 minutes to set up. Once it is all set, fold in the cool whip (or fresh whipped cream) in a 9x9 pan, place a layer of the graham crackers on the bottom and top with a layer of the pistachio mousse, place another layer of the graham crackers and repeat until you run out. I used the crumbs to sprinkle on the top for decoration and place in the fridge for about 4 hours to set up. 

The graham crackers soften and it becomes a cake like mixture. This is now one of my new favorite desserts and I cannot wait for the next get together so I can whip this up!
