Add another layer of graham crackers over the pudding, then add 1/3 of the pudding on top. Spread to coat. Add a third layer of crackers over the pudding and top with the remaining pudding. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. 

  3. Top with nuts (or sprinkles or shaved chocolate). Cut into squares and serve.
