MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2014

"Ditto, KGosh......needs more banana. First thing my husband said was "Why didn't you use banana pudding?" I will make this again but with banana pudding!"

MY REVIEW

"Very good and very easy! It's always nice to find a delicious recipe that amps up boxed brownie mix. I think next time, though, I'll use banana cream pudding mix instead of vanilla. There wasn't quite enough banana flavor for me!"

MY REVIEW

"The recipe sounds wonderful. This note is to the poster from Australia who cannot find Cool Whip. May I suggest Dream Whip mix in a box. We used Dream Whip for years before Cool Whip came on the market. It is simple to make if you can find the product. Good luck."

MY REVIEW

"This is fantastic. The first time we had it I wasn't all the excited as I don't care for bananas or nuts but wow-this is the dessert to change my mind! Delish."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 21, 2010

"Should the packages of instant vanilla pudding mix be 1.5 oz each or is it really 5.1 oz each?"
