Peanut Butter and Marshmallow, Banana Pudding

  This thick creamy pudding is a version that is a little different from the Nilla Wafer all vanilla and banana pudding that we grew up with as children. This pudding is homemade and very rich. The peanut butter adds a nice change. As for the marshmallows I had to switch from Cool Whip because my son hates Cool Whip, whose kid is he anyway , because I could eat Cool Whip as a dessert! So in this version I use mini marshmallows but if you want use Cool Whip instead but I think the marshmallows give it a fun twist from the same old same old Banana Pudding !

1 Heaping TBS Flour ( HUGE HEAPING ) !
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs beaten
Dash of Salt   
2 Cups Milk   
1 TBS Butter   
1 TSP Vanilla 
2/3 Cup Mini Marshmallows OR Cool Whip
About 24 Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies any you like.
2 Bananas

Stir together flour, sugar & dash of salt in a deep saucepan. Whisk in the beaten eggs. Now slowly whisk in milk over medium high heat. Whisk while cooking until mixture turns thick & bubbles about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat & whisk in butter & vanilla. Set aside & get ready to layer your dessert. Choose a pretty glass bowl that hold about 8 cups . Take about 24  sandwich cookies and take them apart. Lay pieces enough to cover the bottom & up the sides of the bowl. Now slice one banana into thin discs and lay them over the cookies. Sprinkle all but 1/4 cup of the marshmallows over the bananas. Now spoon about 1/2 of the pudding over the marshmallows. I do this while the pudding is hot so the cookies soften and marshmallows melt just a bit. Now take another layer of cookie pieces and lay them over the pudding. Slice your second banana and arrange slices over the cookies. Spoon remaining pudding over the bananas. Crush up the cookies you have left & sprinkle them over the pudding. Sprinkle the very top with the 1/4 cup of mini marshmallows. This is such a lush dessert and yet kiddies will dig in too!

FOR EASE use your favorite box instant pudding BUT it will not be as good as the pudding above. If you like use Nilla Wafer and Cool Whip for an OLD favorite. But this pudding is to good not to try & EASY! I have used my homemade peanut butter cookies that I will Blog and they are good too! This recipes makes 6 GENEROUS servings & can be made into individual parfaits if desired!
