My love of Notre Dame & lemon lush inspired this dessert. A rare time I've made up a dessert recipe completely on my own. Just had a piece & it is SO yummy! You must try this one.
Make sure to use a baking pan that is not really lengthy, but deep enough that you can fit all the layers in there easily.

How to Make Naughty Irish Monkey

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the butter, walnuts & flour in a bowl. Press this into a greased pan to form the crust. Bake for 10-20 minutes until golden.
  • 2Let crust cool. Mix the sugar, softened cream cheese together. Add mashed bananas and one cup of Cool Whip. Whisk or mix this until it is nice & fluffy. Spread this onto the crust when the crust is no longer warm.
  • 3Then mix Irish cream, milk & pudding packages together. Mix very well so that there are not lumps. Pour this on top of the banana cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • 4Mix the rest of the Cool Whip w/the banana extract & put that on top of the chocolate mix. Enjoy!
