Recipe: Chocolate Banana Pudding with a twist


Banana Pudding

  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4-5 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1 package of vanilla wafer cookies

 Chocolate Mix

  • 1 ¼ cup of heavy cream
  • 6 ounces of your favorite bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 chocolate bar (your favorite)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine heavy cream and chocolate. Heat and stir in saucepan until chocolate mix is melted with a smooth texture.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the vanilla pudding mix and milk, stir.
  3. In the bottom of an aluminum pan or serving dish, place a layer of cookies, followed by a layer of vanilla pudding mix, followed by bananas. Repeat this process until all ingredients are used. I prefer to end with a pudding layer with crushed cookies on top.

*Chocolate Twist: There are several options for adding a chocolate twist to this dessert:

  1. Option 1: Place the chocolate mix in a Ziploc bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the Ziploc bag and squeeze chocolate mix on the top of each banana layer.
  2. Option 2: Dip the wafers in chocolate and place them in the dessert as directed.
  3. Option 3: For the chocolate lovers, combine options 1 & 2.
  4. Refrigerate until serving and Enjoy!
