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

  1. Prepare 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)
  2. In large bowl, beat together pudding mix and milk until thick and creamy.
  3. In separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth( I find this helps avoids lumps)
  4. Add cream chesse to pudding mixture.Beat until creamy. Fold in half of the whipped cream.
  5. In 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.
  6. Repeat 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.
  7. Repeat 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.
  8. Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.
