FHE Dessert

Here is a new Family Home Evening dessert we tried that was so delicious. We love bananas at our house, so it was an instant hit. I used fat free cream cheese and skim milk in the pudding mix to make it a lower fat recipe, but  the chocolate chips could be omitted as well. It is a combination of a couple of recipes that I have tried before, and I think this version got 8 Starbuck thumbs up!

Ingredients:
1 box Nilla Wafers cookies
1 small box banana pudding mix (3.4oz size)
1 8oz carton of whipped topping
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup sugar

2 bananas sliced
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Cooking Instructions:
Prepare pudding according to package directions; fold in whipped topping. Combine butter, sugar, and cream cheese in another mixing bowl; beat at medium speed until smooth. Fold into the pudding mixture. Crush vanilla wafers in a ziploc bag. Use small(9oz) cups and layer crumbs, pudding mixture, cut up bananas, crumbs, pudding mixture,  and whipped topping. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and garnish with a sliced banana. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
