Best EVER Banana Pudding

I love bananas- banana cream pie, banana bread, peanut butter on bananas, chocolate covered bananas, etc. But there aren't too many "festive" banana recipes that would go along with the Christmas season. When I saw this recipe, I thought to myself "Yahtzee! Pepperidge Farm makes Christmas Chessmen! This is perfect." I honestly cannot tell you how delicious this banana pudding is...after we had it for dessert, my kids kept opening the refrigerator for extra spoonfuls. It will be my "go-to" dessert... even in winter. These are so delicious and buttery. Lay cookies down on a 9x13, then layer with sliced bananas. Mix your pudding with milk and let sit until firm. Beat together condensed milk with cream cheese. Mix in pudding and pour over top of bananas, then top with the remaining Chessmen.   5.0 from 1 reviews Best EVER Banana Pudding   Author: Paula Deen Recipe type: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/not-yo-mamas-banana-pudding-recipe.html Serves: 12 Prep time: 30 mins Total time: 30 mins Save Print   Ingredients 2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies 6 to 8 bananas, sliced 2 cups milk 1 (5-ounce) box … [Read More...]
