Step 1

Take out a casserole dish. Place a layer of crackers along the bottom, covering it completely. Once you've mixed the lemon pudding, pour it on top of the layer of crackers, covering them completely. Place a next layer of crackers on top of the lemon pudding. Once you've mixed the vanilla pudding, pour it on top of the layer of crackers. Now cover the whole thing with Cool Whip.

Step 2

Place the dish in the fridge from anywhere between 6 and 8 hours, long enough for the dessert to set. I recommend preparing the dessert in the morning, if you need it for the evening.

Step 3

Now take the dessert out of the fridge, grab a big old spoon, and pile it on high in a bowl. This is one of my fave desserts and you will definitely be going back for seconds, maybe even thirds :)


You'll need to adjust the amount of boxes of pudding, crackers and cool whip to the size of your serving dish. You can try different flavors of pudding as well, my fave being lemon and vanilla. Also, this dessert has to be eaten within a few days of it being put in the fridge, as it will start getting runny. Enjoy!!!
