I love to spoil my husband. He works hard and he deserves it. Though I can't always spoil him in the ways I want to, one way I can spoil him is by making him his favorite foods. A lady I worked with a while back was a Food Network nut and she would often print off recipes for me. This was one I had been holding on to for a while. I finally decided to give it a go and it was delicious!!!!!! I scaled it down a little because my husband, son and I have no business eating a 9x13 size pan of banana pudding. I also didn't have chess men cookies so I used a graham cracker crust. This was easy to put together, flavorful and just down right delicious.
Not Yo Mamma's Banana Pudding
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies (you could really use whatever kind of base you like for this recipe)
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) sweetened whipped cream
Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
My baby loved this pudding too!
The sweetest kisses!
