No-Bake Chocolate Eclair Dessert

I can barely put the words together to describe how much I love this dessert. It is absolutely the perfect summer dessert - cold, light (no I don't necessarily mean calories), easy, and amazing. You CANNOT go wrong with chocolate, graham crackers, vanilla pudding, and cool whip. You just can't.

The chocolate is SO good - it's kind of hard, and by that I mean it's not just icing, and it's not a hard chocolate candy shell. It is perfect, and delicious, and just yummy. Make sure you refrigerate this overnight so the graham crackers have time to soften. It's only 9 am, but after typing this I feel like I need to go have a leftover piece of this amazing dessert. 

2 (3.5 oz.) boxes vanilla instant pudding (sugar free/fat free)
3 c milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip Lite
Graham crackers
1/3 c cocoa
1 c sugar
1/4 c milk (unsweetened almond milk)
1 stick (1/2 c) butter
1 tsp vanilla

For the filling: 
Combine pudding mix and milk; beat. Stir in Cool Whip. 
Place a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13" dish. Spread 1/2 of the pudding mixture over the graham crackers. Repeat with another layer of graham crackers and pudding; then top with a final layer of graham crackers.
For the topping: 
Bring cocoa, milk, and sugar to a full rolling boil; boil about 1 minute, stirring very frequently. Remove from heat and cool one minute. Add butter and vanilla; stir until butter is melted. 
Pour chocolate topping over the top layer of graham crackers. Refrigerate overnight.
