Ingredients

  • 2 (3.4 oz) packages of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 1 (8 oz) container of whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 box of graham crackers
  • 1 (21 oz) can of apple pie filling
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Pudding: In a large bowl, whisk together the instant vanilla pudding mix and cold milk until thickened. This should take about 2 minutes. Once thickened, gently fold in the whipped topping until well combined.
  2. Layer the Ingredients:
  • In a 9×13 inch baking dish, place a single layer of graham crackers on the bottom, breaking them as needed to fit.
  • Spread half of the pudding mixture over the graham crackers, smoothing it out with a spatula.
  • Spoon the apple pie filling evenly over the pudding layer. If desired, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon over the apple pie filling for extra flavor.
  • Drizzle a third of the caramel sauce over the apple pie filling.
  1. Repeat the Layers:
  • Add another layer of graham crackers over the apple pie filling.
  • Spread the remaining pudding mixture over the graham crackers.
  • Drizzle another third of the caramel sauce over the pudding layer.
  1. Top the Cake:
  • Finish with a final layer of graham crackers.
  • Drizzle the remaining caramel sauce over the top layer of graham crackers, spreading it evenly.
  1. Chill: Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the graham crackers to soften and the flavors to meld together.
  2. Serve: Once chilled, slice and serve your No-Bake Caramel Apple Eclair Cake. Enjoy the creamy, caramel-apple goodness with every bite!

Tip: For an extra indulgent touch, top with additional whipped topping or a sprinkle of chopped nuts before serving.
