If you love Samoa cookies, you’re going to love this no-bake cake! This is my chocolate version. Samoa cookies have chocolate on the bottom, right? I love the taste of Chocolate Graham Crackers with French Vanilla Pudding between the layers. Then when you top it with Caramel ice cream syrup? Oh my! So good. So easy.
If you are a coconut lover and someone else in the family doesn’t care for it, omit it on half of the cake. You will only need ½ cup of coconut if you do this. And don’t forget to eyeball the exact middle, so you can make your coconut side a little bit bigger. Ha ha.
Here is how I make mine:
INGREDIENTS: Yield 9” x 13” pan
2 small (3.4 oz) packages of Vanilla or French Vanilla Instant Pudding
2 ¾ cups milk
1/3 cup caramel ice cream syrup
8 oz. Cool Whip
Chocolate Graham Crackers (2 sleeves)
3 TBSP butter
3 TBSP milk
4 TBSP cocoa powder
1 cup Confectioner’s Sugar
½ tsp vanilla
2 dashes salt
1 cup toasted coconut
Extra Caramel Sauce to drizzle
In mixer bowl, beat pudding and milk on low speed for a couple of minutes. Add 1/3 cup caramel and mix until combined. Add Cool Whip and beat only until thoroughly mixed in. While you’re mixing, toast the coconut in your toaster oven. Keep your eye on it. It browns quickly.
9” x 13” pan, no need for greasing. Layer graham crackers to cover bottom of pan. You’ll have to cut a few in order to avoid any bare spots.
Pour half of pudding mixture on top of graham crackers. Layer another layer of crackers and pour remaining pudding mixture on top. Put it in the refrigerator while you make your frosting.
Put butter and milk in a small bowl and heat until butter is melted, stirring halfway through. Add cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and confectioner’s sugar, beating with whisk until smooth and lump free. Pour over cake and spread with an offset spatula or back of a spoon. Don’t worry if some of the pudding mix combines with the Frosting. This is normal. Once you sprinkle on the coconut and drizzle extra Caramel Sauce on top, you won’t notice.
Place toasted coconut on top and drizzle with caramel sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a good four hours.
