This takes a little time but oh so worth it! This is the dessert I make every July 4th.

**I use a little fruit fresh on the bananas to help w/ browning.
You can probaly use cool whip instead of making your own but I find that it doesn't hold up as well

How to Make Banana Split Triffle

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare cake according to pkg. directions and bake in a 9x13 pan. Let cool completely. Cut 3/4 of the cake into 1-in cubes. ( save for another dessert or just eat it, can't let cake go to waste)
  • 2In large bowl, beat together pudding mix and milk until thick and creamy.
  • 3In separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth( I find this helps avoids lumps)
  • 4Add cream chesse to pudding mixture.Beat until creamy. Fold in half of the whipped cream.
  • 5In large triffle or glass bowl, layer 1/3 of the cake cubes,1/3 of the cream chesse mixture, 1/3 of the banana slices and 1/3 of the pecans.
  • 6Repeat cake and cream chesse layers and top with half of cherry pie filling. Top pie filling with 1/3 bananas, 1/3 pecans and 1/3 fudge topping.
  • 7Repeat step 4. Top with remaining whipped cream: drizzle w remaining hot fudge ( warm in the microwave for a few seconds) and sprinkle w additional pecans and marachino cheeries.
  • 8Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.
