Nana banana's ice box cake

 
My nana used to make ice box cake for us when my brother and I were little. It's more of a pudding than cake, but it's great for days when you don't wanna bake (like in the summer). Here's my super-easy take on the treat. Whip it up the night before you're gonna serve it.

What You'll Need:

2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding
4 cups 2% milk
1 box of graham crackers
2-3 bananas
Cool Whip
A couple squares of dark chocolate (optional)

Equipment:
1 mixing bowl
1 measuring cup
1 not-that-sharp knife
1 big Ziploc baggie
Spoons
9x11 baking dish
Grater

What You'll Do:

Make the pudding in a big bowl, following the instructions on the package. Put it in the fridge to chill. Then, place about 5-6 graham crackers in the Ziploc baggie. Use a spoon to whack the baggie, breaking up the crackers into a sand-like consistency. Be careful that the bag doesn't break!

Cover the bottom of the baking dish with a layer of graham crackers. Carefully spread a layer of pudding over it (less than an inch, but enough so that each cracker is covered). Then, throw down another layer of graham crackers. Layer pudding on top. Next, sprinkle the crushed graham crackers on top. Cover it with plastic wrap and pop in the fridge.

Right before you serve it, cut up some bananas into thin wheels. Put a layer of them on top of the cake. Spread the Cool Whip on top. Wanna get extra fancy? Grate some dark chocolate in a box grater. Sprinkle it on top. Serve!
