Chocolate Eclair Dessert

I love eclairs but haven't ever wanted to devote the time and effort required to make them. I'd rather pay someone else for that. But this dessert has the flavor of eclairs without all the fuss. This recipe comes from my friend Angie.

1 (1 lb.) box graham crackers
2 small packages French Vanilla Instant pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (9 oz.) container Cool Whip

6 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons Karo syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk

Butter the bottom of a 9x13 pan, line with graham crackers. Mix pudding with the milk and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Blend in Cool Whip. Spread half the mixture over the graham crackers and then place a second layer of graham crackers over pudding. Pour remaining pudding over and cover with more crackers. Refrigerate for 2 hours then frost. Refrigerate for 24 hours after frosting.
