Personal Notes:
This a family favorite from when I was a kid. I loved it then and still love it. I believe the name "Ice Box Cake" derived from when times were hard, money was tight, and pudding & graham crackers were really cheap ( the few things that still are ) . So you always had this in the ice box. Funny, I find these kinds of recipes to be my favorite.
