Serving Size: Serves 6-8 Ingredients
  • 9 Graham Crackers (mashed into crumbs)
  • 4 T Unsalted Butter (melted)
  • 1 Package Vanilla Pudding Mix (3.4 oz package)
  • 1 1/3 Cups Whole Milk (cold)
  • 4 oz Cool Whip
  • 2 Bananas (sliced thin)
  • 2 T Sweetened Coconut Flakes (lightly toasted)
  • Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Cookies (for serving)
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine your melted butter and graham cracker crumbs - mix together thoroughly. Press this mixture into an 8"x6" Pyrex Dish to make an even layer on the bottom of the dish. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  • For the filling: whisk together your vanilla pudding mix with the cold milk. Allow it to sit a few minutes and thicken naturally. Fold your Cool Whip into the pudding gently so as not to over mix the Cool Whip (which can make it watery).
  • To Assemble: On top of your cooled graham cracker crust, top with your sliced bananas (you will have about 2 layers of banana). Top that with your pudding/Cool Whip mixture. Top with the Toasted Shredded Coconut and a Chessman Cookie. Serve cold!
