Brownie Banana Bonanza

    While I was talking to my sister one day, she told me about this dessert that her family really liked. Since it involved  chocolate, I knew my daughter would love it. So, I tried it and YES, she did love it. I've also brought it to my brothers for picnics and get-togethers and all of the grand kids, nieces and nephews loved it too.   I've come across it again and am going to make it for our next card night.  So, here goes:


15 oz Brownie Mix
2 bananas
Vanilla Instant Pudding  
1 1/2 c milk
2 1/2 c cool whip
Hershey Chocolate Bar (Optional)

Make the brownies according to package directions in a square baking pan.  Cool.  Cover with sliced bananas,  ***  Spread the pudding mixture over the top and add grated Hershey chocolate bar (Optional).  Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

***While brownies are cooling, make the vanilla pudding.  Fold in the cool whip.



  1. Wait a minute! How can the Hershey chocolate bar be optional?? ;-) This looks like a great recipe, for I love chocolate, but I may use a Ritter Sport dark chocolate bar instead. Just try it. You'll see why. :-)

  2. I don't think the Hershey Bar should be optional!!!! It's a must! Nice recipe! Stopping by for the blog hop and following you. Hope you can follow back!

  3. OMG I so need to try this! Brownies are my weakness! And I think I just happen to have a brownie mix that's around it's expiration date.....
    Thanks for the follow! Following back- grabbed a button (hope you got one of mine too!)

  4. I agree with Cranberry morning. Is a hershey chocolate bar ever really optional? Say's the girl with the big butt.

    Sitting my big butt down now... Looks yummy and of course I am going to have to try this recipe.. WITH the optional bar. (smile)

    PS Following ya!
