Ice Box Cream Pie

As kids we always called this Ice Cream Box Pie - we could not keep the title straight - all we knew was that we LOVED it. This is embarrassingly easy - but everyone always loves it and it goes fast.

1 1/2 cups fine graham cracker crumbs, about 12 graham crackers
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar, packed
2 packages instant vanilla pudding (4-serving size)
milk (see pie filling directions)
Cool Whip or sweetened whipped cream

Baker's German chocolate
Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Press mixture into bottom and up sides of 9-inch pie plate. Bake crust in a preheated oven 8 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Prepare pudding according to package directions for a pie, with milk and both packages of pudding mix. Pour the prepared pudding into cooled graham cracker crust. Top with whipped topping (may not need whole cotainer), then with a grater shave chocolate on top of the pie (as much or little as you want). Chill pie for at least 30 minutes before serving.
