This is one of the easiest, best desserts ever. I have been making this for years with success every time. It's really hard to screw up something so easy! Try to make it the day before you want to serve it, if possible. The graham crackers soften overnight, making it more like a cake. And my preference is regular graham crackers rather than chocolate. I also use 4 tablespoons of butter in the topping which makes it really creamy, not hard, as some reviews state. You should get a thin crisp layer on the top of the icing, like glaze, and it should be creamy underneath. Please don't ever use canned frosting on this. I have seen that on many versions of this recipe (and a review of this one), but that is such a disservice to this yummy cake. The icing is quick and easy enough to make, and it tastes so much better than canned. I usually make 1.5 times what the recipe calls for!
