Nanner Puddin' Tutorial

 My recipe for Banana Pudding (or as we call it in our house, Nanner Puddin'
is another one of my few specialties! 
It is very easy to make (clearly, or I wouldn't be making it!), and it is absolutely delicious.
I make it for my entire family every Christmas Eve and it is always a crowd pleaser.
So come on and try it out!

(Makes about 12 Servings)
One box of Nilla wafers
About 5 very ripe bananas
1 tub Cool Whip
3 boxes vanilla Jello pudding mix
6 cups half & half (instead of milk- makes thicker pudding)
1. Prepare the pudding a few hours in advance so it has time to thicken in the fridge.
2. Slice the bananas.
3. In a large glass bowl, layer the pudding, the bananas and then the wafers.

Start on the bottom with a layer of pudding about 1- 1 1/2 in. thick. 
Follow the pudding with a layer of the sliced bananas.
4. Then add a layer of Nilla wafers.
Now, you might think this is silly, but I think that the taste of the finished product all comes down to what I do with the layers of wafers:

The first layer is whole wafers... 
(followed by a layer of pudding and a layer of bananas)
The second layer is very crushed up wafers...
(followed up by another layer of pudding and bananas)
And the last layer is broken wafers.
5. Top it off with a layer of Cool Whip, a few wafer crumbs and some bananas, and you've got yourself some melt-in-your-mouth
Banana Pudding!
I think you'll really love it!

I can see why breaking the wafers differently would make the taste more interesting. So many different textures. Looks delish!

That looks so delicious looking. I wonder what the alternative to Nillo wafers is in the UK as we don't have those here.
