Michelle's Story

My love of Notre Dame & lemon lush inspired this dessert. A rare time I've made up a dessert recipe completely on my own. Just had a piece & it is SO yummy! You must try this one.
Make sure to use a baking pan that is not really lengthy, but deep enough that you can fit all the layers in there easily.

Ingredients

1/2
cup walnuts, crushed
1/2
cup butter, softened
1
cup flour
2
3.4 ounce boxes chocolate pudding
1
8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1
cup powdered sugar
2
bananas, ripe & mashed
1
container cool whip, thawed
1
cup irish cream, cold
2
cups milk, cold
1
tsp banana extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the butter, walnuts & flour in a bowl. Press this into a greased pan to form the crust. Bake for 10-20 minutes until golden.
2
Let crust cool. Mix the sugar, softened cream cheese together. Add mashed bananas and one cup of cool whip. Whisk or mix this until it is nice & fluffy. Spread this onto the crust when the crust is no longer warm.
3
Then mix Irish cream, milk, & pudding packages together. Mix very well so that there are not lumps. Pour this on top of the banana cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
4
Mix the rest of the cool whip w/ the banana extract & put that on top of the chocolate mix. Enjoy!

mICHELLE, EHEN YOU SAY Irish cream, do you mean like Baily's Irish Cream? %hat's the only Irish cream I am familiar with. Not a problem for me. It should add to the flavor. I'm really eager to try this. It sounds delicious. Don

Yeah, you will not miss the extract, Annette. I didn't add too much, but I liked the additional flavor it gave, and I had it in my cupboard, so...ya know. :) I was really worried when this was in the fridge, as it didn't look as good as I imagined, and I thought I had a huge fail on my hands. Then, I sliced a piece this morning, tasted it, & hello! It is soooooooooooo good. Packed with flavor.

This sounds yummy Michelle. Thanks for sharing. I won't use the banana extract because I don't like the artificial flavor of it but I know it will be just as yummy without it.

Yes, I do, Nancy! And, everyone at my office is on diets, so they won't even eat it if I take it in tomorrow. lol
