When mixture is cooled, cream the butter until softened.
Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating constantly until light and fluffy.
Add the chocolate mixture, a small amount at a time, blending well after each addition.

Repeat layering and top with graham crackers.
Cover and chill about 48 hours.
