Directions Step-By-Step

COMBINE wafer crumbs and margarine; press firmly onto bottom of 9×13-inch dish. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
**I have to double the crust ingredients to get it to cover the bottom of a 9X13 pan
MIX cream cheese and sugar in medium bowl until well blended. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping; spread carefully onto crust. Set aside. Slice bananas and arrange over cream cheese mixture.
POUR milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. Spoon over bananas. Spread with remaining whipped topping; sprinkle with chocolate (optional.
**I haven’t put the chocolate on yet….I like to put a layer of Nilla Wafers on top or just leave the cool whip as the topping
Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving. Store leftovers in refrigerator (if there are any : )
When ready to serve cut into squares and put grated baking chocolate on top. (optional)
