Hazen's Mississippi Mud for Lehi!

There are many different kinds of "Mississippi Mud."  This is Grandma Hazen's recipe, but instead of shortbread pecan crust (our family aren't fans of nuts), we put it in a graham cracker crust.

Graham cracker crust in a 9x13 cake pan:
2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 cup Butter
5 TBS Sugar
Mix and press into the bottom of a 9x13 cake pan.

Filling, bottom layer:
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 cup whipped cream, dream whip or cool whip
1 cup powdered sugar
Beat well and spread over graham cracker crust.

Filling, top layer:
2 small packages of chocolate pudding
3 cups milk
Beat well and spread over the cream cheese layer.

Refrigerate 2+ hours.  Cut and serve.  Can be served with squirted whipped cream on top.

Mississippi Mud can be used substituting cherry or blueberry pie filling for chocolate pudding layer.
