This is not a dietetic recipe. You get the full flavors from all the ingredients. This recipe is a step up from the other banana pudding recipes. It is delicious and when served is pretty. My family enjoys it when I make this.

How to Make Banana Pudding Squares

Step-by-Step

  1. COMBINE wafer crumbs and margarine; press firmly onto bottom of 9×13-inch dish. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
    **I have to double the crust ingredients to get it to cover the bottom of a 9X13 pan
  2. MIX cream cheese and sugar in medium bowl until well blended. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping; spread carefully onto crust. Set aside. Slice bananas and arrange over cream cheese mixture.
  3. POUR milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. Spoon over bananas. Spread with remaining whipped topping; sprinkle with chocolate (optional.
    **I haven’t put the chocolate on yet….I like to put a layer of Nilla Wafers on top or just leave the cool whip as the topping
  4. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving. Store leftovers in refrigerator (if there are any : )
  5. When ready to serve cut into squares and put grated baking chocolate on top. (optional)
