Happy hump day everyone! I'm so looking forward to the weekend! 

I'm heading out for dinner and drinks with a couple friends to celebrate my birthday on Saturday and have an extra day off work on Monday. I just love those long weekends!

Today's recipe is so perfect for summertime and you can just about use any fruit combo.  I used strawberry and rhubarb and it turned out phenomenal, but I bet others berries would be SO good too, especially cherries. 

I just love graham cracker crust, the tartness of the rhubarb and the sweet, creamy pudding topping. I brought this to work with me when I made it, and everyone really liked it. We had the 9x13 pan gone pretty quickly.

This easy dessert is great for parties, BBQ's and potlucks, or if you're like my family, just because you're craving all things rhubarb!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pudding Dessert

Ingredients

  • Fruit layer:
  • 3 cups sliced rhubarb
  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Crust:
  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • Pudding layer:
  • 1 - 3.4 ounce box instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 - 8 ounce cool whip, thawed
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • sliced strawberries or crushed graham crackers for garnish, optional

  2. In a medium saucepan, cook the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar and butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Whisk in the cornstarch, cook for another 3-4 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and cool completely.

  5. Make the vanilla pudding according to package directions using the 2 cups milk.
  6. When the fruit and crust are cooled, combine the prepared pudding, cool whip and mini marshmallows in a bowl.
  7. Spread the fruit mixture evenly onto the graham cracker crust and then spread the pudding mixture over top of that.
  8. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving.
  9. Cut into 12 squares and garnish with strawberries or graham cracker crumbs, if desired.

You can purchase graham cracker crumbs, or use a food processor or ziploc bag and rolling pin to crush crackers into crumbs.
