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


1Make chocolate pudding, as directed on package, with the 3 cups of milk.
2In a medium bowl, put 1/4 of the chocolate pudding on the bottom.
3Place 1/2 of a banana, sliced, on top of the pudding, spreading them evenly.
4Drizzle Carmel Syrup/Ice Cream Topping over the bananas. Add enough to your liking, I use 1-2 TBLS, on the first layer.
5Add 1/4 of the Cool Whip, spread in a layer, over the Banana and Carmel layer.
6Drizzle with Chocolate Syrup/Ice Cream Topping, about 2 TBLS over the Cool Whip Layer.
7Repeat 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.
8Can serve right away, or refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
