Banana Pudding Crunch
Field editor Joanie Ward of Brownsburg, Indiana gives a twist to a traditional comfort food by adding a crunchy meringue-nut topping. It's a dressed-up dessert that's so easy to prepare.
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + cooling

- 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix

- 2 medium firm bananas, sliced
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans

- In a large bowl, whisk the milk, pudding mixes and sour cream for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until thickened. Fold in bananas. Pour into a 1-1/2-qt. bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Deliciously amazing! This recipe can't get any yummier or easy to make! Cold vanilla pudding, fresh firm bananas-yum!- and the nut crunch topping puts it over the edge. Perfect for a light summer dessert. My kids love it as well.
