I found a recipe for Banana Pudding Trifle in the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook. It sounded wonderful, but I tweaked it to make it my own. Here is my version.

I hope you enjoy, we sure did. There was nothing left after serving at our dinner this past week.

Prep:

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
sugar
3/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
4 c
milk
8
egg yolks
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
2 pkg
pepperidge farms chessman cookies
6
ripe bananas, sliced
6
(1.4-oz.) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, cut up or crushed
4 c
whipping cream
4 Tbsp
sifted powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan; whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.
2
Beat egg yolks until thick and pale. Gradually stir one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in vanilla. Let the custard cool with plastic wrap directly on the custard so it won't form a skin.
3
When the custard is cooled, beat cream at medium speed with an electric mixer, gradually adding in the powdered sugar. Beat until soft peaks form.
4
Layer one-third of cookies in a 16-cup trifle bowl or 4-quart baking dish. Top with one-third of banana slices.
5
Spoon one-third of custard over banana, and sprinkle with 1/3 of crushed candy bar. Spoon one-third of whipped cream over the candy. Repeat layers twice, so there are 3 layers of everything. On the last layering, I put the candy on top for presentation.
