A Chocolate-Banana Refrigerator Cake by Honey Maid Grahams

Yesterday afternoon it was over 70 degrees here in the foothills of North Carolina.  I had chosen to make this chocolate banana dessert for our Sunday lunch and it was a good choice.  Sometimes I think I find recipes but I must say this recipe found me.  I was using the last of my honey graham crackers and crushing the box to throw it away.  I noticed a recipe on the back of it for the chocolate banana dessert.  It seemed easy to make and I realized I could use the sugar free chocolate or vanilla pudding and it would be great for Mr. D.  When I started to make the dessert, I realized I did not have sugar free vanilla pudding but sugar free banana cream pudding.  I made the substitution and the dessert was very good.

The only thing that was confusing for me was in step two and the explanation of the use of the graham crackers.  You crush 7 graham squares, arrange 14 graham squares and 1 rectangle on the bottom of the pan and place another layer of 14 squares and 1 rectangle on top of the vanilla pudding.  The 7 crushed grahams are used in step three for the garnish.

I know I will make this dessert again and I look forward to experimenting with different pudding flavors and fruits.  Thanks for stopping by.

    I never could find a “square” graham cracker. One whole is a rectangle. One-half of the whole is a rectangle. The whole makes up four rectangles.
