Chocolate Banana Cheesecake
package of graham cracker crumbs. this equals roughly 3 cups
unsalted butter, melted
instant banana pudding powder
sweetened condensed milk
chocolate (any kind) - chilled in fridge. this makes it easier to grate.
1In large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs with sugar and ginger. Add butter and mix well until all is incorporated.
2Butter a baking dish (I used a 9x13). Pour in graham cracker mixture and press it down tightly and along the sides, trying to be as even as possible.
3Store this in the freezer while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
4Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Cut open vanilla bean and scrape out the insides into the cream cheese. Beat until incorporated.
5Add the pudding mix (add as powder, not as prepared pudding). Beat until mixed together. Pour in the condensed milk and beat for 3-4 minutes.
6Scoop cheese into baking pan. Spread it out evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in fridge overnight.
7When ready to serve, grate chocolate over the top.
