3 Delicious Desserts Using Graham Crackers

Knocking together a delicious dessert needn't be a long drawn-out task. With a packet of Graham Crackers and a handful of other ingredients, you can create wonderful sweet treats in next to no time! Here are 3 fantastic examples you need to try when you're running against the clock...

1. Sweet Salami

You'll Need:

  • 6 oz cocoa cream
  • 3 oz powdered sugar (and a little more to sprinkle on top before serving)
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • 1 oz baking cocoa
  • 1 packet Graham Crackers
  • Tip: some rum or almond flavoring

Here's How:

1.1 First, warm the cocoa cream in a pot. Make sure that it doesn't boil. Leave it to cool for a little while. Beat the eggs with the powdered sugar until foamy and add the cocoa cream. You can also add some rum or almond flavoring at the is point if you so wish.

1.2 Break up the Graham Crackers and stir them into the cocoa cream.

1.3 Spoon the mixture onto plastic wrap and roll it up into a long sausage. Wrap this in aluminum foil and place it in the fridge for at least two hours.

1.4 Remove the aluminum and plastic foil before sprinkling on a generous amount of powdered sugar onto your chocolate salami. Add some string and a label for the finishing touch. A pretty cool gift, don't you think?

2. Chocolate Cream Cake

You'll Need:

  • 1 packet Graham Crackers

For the cream:

  • 11 oz cream cheese
  • 5 oz whipped cream
  • 3 oz powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

For the decoration:

  • 5 oz whipped cream
  • chocolate shavings

Here's How:

2.1 Beat the fresh cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Carefully fold in the whipped cream.

2.2 Line a casserole dish with plastic foil and fill a piping bag with the cream. Next, pipe the cream onto the bottom and sides of the dish.

2.3 Now start to add the Graham Crackers to the dish. Place 3 Graham Crackers lengthways along the top edge of the dish and pipe a layer of cream in front of the cookies. Continue this pattern until the dish has been filled. Afterwards, cover everything with the rest of the cream and smooth it out flat. Fold over the plastic wrap and refrigerate the dish overnight.

2.4 The next day, you can remove your Chocolate Cream Cake from the dish. Remove the plastic wrap and decorate the cake with cream and chocolate shavings.

3. Vanilla Pudding Delight

You'll Need:

  • 32 Graham Crackers
  • 26 fl oz milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 packets vanilla pudding
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extra
  • 7 tbsp sugar
  • 8 oz whipped cream

Here's How:

3.1 Place 16 Graham Crackers on a casserole dish so that the bottom is completely covered.

3.2 Warm up 20 fl oz of milk with the sugar and vanilla extract in a pot. Separate two eggs.

3.3 Stir the remaining 6 fl oz of milk with the vanilla pudding powder and 2 egg yolks.

3.4 Once the milk from Step 3.2 is boiling, add the mixture from Step 3.3 and leave everything to boil until the pudding is thick. Leave it to cool.

3.5 Whip the egg whites and carefully fold them into the pudding mixture. Spread the pudding on top of the Graham Crackers in the casserole dish and refrigerate it for a short while. Once the pudding is chilled, spread whipped cream on top of it and place another layer of Graham Crackers on top. Refrigerate the Vanilla Pudding Delight for a further two hours.

It's tricky to say which creation tastes the best, so we recommend giving all three a try first! As you can see, Graham Crackers are such a wonderfully versatile ingredient when it comes to making desserts. Let us know if you have any more ideas!
