Ingredients
  • 1 packet vanilla pudding ( I used Jello brand vanilla pudding)
  • 1 packet cheesecake pudding ( I used Jello brand cheesecake pudding)
  • 1 tub (8 oz) cool whip (If you can't find cool whip where you live then you can make your own cool whip. There are tons of recipe for that online)
  • 2 cups milk ( I used 2% but any fat content is ok)
  • Orange zest from 2 small oranges around 1 tbsp
  • 19-20 graham crackers, enough for 3 layers in a rectangular glass dish (I used a 11" * 7.5" rectangular pyrex baking dish)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ stick or ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup orange melting chocolate for drizzling, optional
Instructions
  1. In rectangular dish, layer graham crackers evenly in a single layer. You can refer the collage I made with all the 6 pictures together.
  2. Now in a bowl, add both vanilla and cheesecake pudding mix. To it add milk and keep whisking using a whisk until it starts to thicken. Once it reaches a thick pudding like consistency, add the cool whip along with orange zest and gently fold everything together.
  3. Layer ½ of this mix over the graham crackers evenly. Now layer another layer of graham crackers on top making sure they are all in the same level. Now add the remaining cool whip mix over the graham cracker layer and smooth it out.Now add the final layer of graham crackers on top.
  4. In a small bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in microwave for a minute. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir and repeat for another 30 seconds 2-3 times or until chocolate is all melted. Now add sugar and milk and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour this melted chocolate mix over the graham crackers and smooth it out as much as possible.
  6. Now cover and let it sit in refrigerator for 7-10 hours. If you want to drizzle that orange melted chocolate, then take it out after few hours and drizzle with melted orange candy and keep it bake in refrigerator!
  7. After sitting for good 7-10 hours, the graham crackers would become soft and would absorb lot of the flavors. Cut and serve and keep the leftovers tightly covered in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Notes
Ami says:
* If you can't find packets of vanilla and cheesecake pudding mix where you live, do not worry! You can just use VANILLA PUDDING instead. You can search for vanilla pudding recipes online or make my tried & tested, POPCORN VANILLA PUDDING. Just omit popcorn and increase amount of vanilla. You might want to make 4 times this pudding so you have enough for layering.
