Our oldest son turned fourteen over the weekend. We ushered in Mitchell’s big day with a party with his 10 best buddies.
When I asked him what he wanted for his celebration he answered, “Pizza, Doritoes, soda pop and basketball.”
Boys are so low maintenance. His sister’s parties when she was younger always turned out to be a seven course catered affair with elaborate decorations!
He did ask for one more thing. His favorite dessert (instead of cake) Boston Grahams. I posted it on my Facebook page. I had people asking for the recipe so here it is….
2 boxes vanilla instant pudding
3 1/2 C. milk
8 ounces Cool Whip
45 graham cracker squares
3 squares baking chocolate
3 T. butter
2 T. corn syrup
1/4 C. water
1 t. vanilla
4 (more or less) C. powdered sugar
Mix pudding and milk until thickened. Fold in Cool Whip. Lay 15 crackers on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan in five rows of three. Spread with 1/2 the pudding mixture. Place on 15 more crackers. Spread remaining pudding mixture. Top with rest of crackers. In a medium saucepan over low, melt chocolate, butter and corn syrup. Stir in water. Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir in powdered sugar until a smooth frosting results. Pour while still warm over the top. Seal with foil and refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving. Serves 12-15.
If you use skim milk and lite Cool Whip and cut the dessert into 15 servings it has 8 Weight Watchers points. (And they are worth every bite!!!!)
