Cowboy-Up Pudding

Vicki Lyn


I made this recipe up, quite by accident, and it turned out amazing! I'll try it next time in a pie crust (a regular pastry crust, oreo crust or graham cracker crust--they will all work well). If you want to make a little more, use 2 boxes of chocolate instant pudding, and then add 4 cups of milk, as called for on the packages. Also, you can use real whipping cream, as opposed to cool whip.

15 Min


Stove Top


1 box
1 large box of instant chocolate pudding
3 c
milk (called for on pudding box)
1 pkg
cool whip, thawed
bananas, sliced
chocolate ice cream topping (like hershey's syrup) for drizzling
carmel ice cream topping (like hershey's syrup) for drizzling

Directions Step-By-Step

Make chocolate pudding, as directed on package, with the 3 cups of milk.
In a medium bowl, put 1/4 of the chocolate pudding on the bottom.
Place 1/2 of a banana, sliced, on top of the pudding, spreading them evenly.
Drizzle Carmel Syrup/Ice Cream Topping over the bananas. Add enough to your liking, I use 1-2 TBLS, on the first layer.
Add 1/4 of the Cool Whip, spread in a layer, over the Banana and Carmel layer.
Drizzle with Chocolate Syrup/Ice Cream Topping, about 2 TBLS over the Cool Whip Layer.
Repeat layers, 2 more times. As the layers rise in the bowl, it will widen. Use a little more pudding, a few more banana slices, a little more drizzle and a little more cool whip, for each layer. On the last layer of Cool Whip, I drizzle both the Chocolate and the Carmel Syrup/Topping.
Can serve right away, or refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
