Alright y’all, get ready for the best banana pudding EVER!! This is no lie! I have made banana pudding for forever and this recipe takes the prize! Paula Deen can have ALL the credit for this amazing dish of perfection! Mmmmm!

Banana pudding has never really been hard to make. It is just matter of mixing and layering. I love using the Chessmen cookies from Pepperidge Farm because it adds that extra cuteness factor.

Alright, buckle your seatbelts friends, we are about to send your tastebuds on the ride of their life!

You start by putting a layer (1 bag) of the Chessmen Cookies on the bottom of a 9×13 dish.

Then, you place 6-8 sliced bananas on top of the cookies.

Once you have done that, you will start mixing together the milk and pudding mix until well blended.

In another bowl, mix the cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.

Add cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir well. Pour the mixture over the sliced bananas.

Top with second bag of Chessmen cookies and viola! You are going to be obsessed with the best banana pudding EVER!!

Isn’t it so cute? This recipe is a crowd favorite at every gathering I attend. It is pretty much a no-fail dessert. Save the recipe to Pinterest for easy accessing in the future.
