- 2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
- 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) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount 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.
-It needs time to setup so it’s best if you make it the night before and top it with Chessmen cookies before you serve.
-The measurements are not exactly per box/container size. If you want a more traditional banana pudding consistency use 1 box small box of pudding, 1 container of whipped topping. It taste great this way but it’s not the true nature of the recipe. I’ve tried it both ways and I like the exact measurements of the recipe the best but could see how this could be too rich for some.
-I you want a more moosie (yes I made that up) dense consistency make sure to follow the recipe exactly! You’ll have extra pudding and whip topping left over.
-It makes a HUGE serving so be prepared to share unless you have a family of 15!
