Ultimate Banana Pudding

Hi guys!!  When I start thinking about Spring my mind fills with lots of springy desserts.  Something about Spring just screams banana pudding, I have no idea why, it just seems like it should be an Easter staple.  So around here it is :)

We used to make the classic banana pudding with cool whip and vanilla wafers.  Then came Paula Deen’s recipe which has cream cheese in it, yum!  She subs out the vanilla wafers for chessman cookies.  It is heavenly.

The other day while shopping I threw a package of Golden Oreos in my basket, because you should have those on hand at all times lol.  Then when browsing the baking aisle I spotted the banana pudding.  Put two and two together and this delicious recipe was born.

The recipe is the same as Paula’s except made more decadent by the addition of those yummy Golden Oreos.  They make the most amazing addition to this already delicious dessert.  Plus the yellow and white are just so springy, bonus!

So pull out your mixer, crumble some oreos (and snack on one or two ;) and make this luscious dessert!

    Do you think I could sub out vanilla or french vanilla pudding for the banana? No one in my family likes banana. :(

    There are usually 2 sizes of pudding boxes…does this use 3 of the small boxes or big boxes?

      Sorry, I just updated the recipe with the correct package size but it uses 3 of the smaller boxes, the 3 ounces boxes. :)

    I love this recipe…but instead of cream cheese…I folded in a tub of the cheese cake filling that I found at my local grocery store. YUM!
