5-Minute Southern Banana Pudding

This favored dessert is wonderful if you need to construct something impressive quickly. You could say it is semi-homemade ;-). For this large purple depression era cocktail glass, a first instant banana pudding single was placed at the bottom. Mini Nilla Wafers were chopped and added to 1/2 of a sliced banana. Another instant banana pudding was placed atop that mixture and topped with the other 1/2 of the sliced banana, then topped with whipped cream, drizzled caramel sauce and a fresh purple flower.

There are so many variations you can feature:
  • Replace the flower with a melted and formed chocolate, butterscotch, or white chocolate decoration
  • Top with Butter Brickle bits or chopped peanut butter cups
  • Top with your favorite chopped nuts
The sky is the limit!

This is an easy but elegant way to make your dessert presentations delicious and delightful!
