    Slice 2 of the bananas and layer over the brownies. In a large mixing bowl, whisk pudding mix into the milk; beat until mixture just begins to thicken. Fold in 2-1/2 cups of the whipped topping. Quickly spread pudding mixture over the sliced bananas. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup peanuts over pudding mixture.
