This is absolutely incredible. I made a kid-friendly version without the alcohol as it was my nine-year-old son's birthday wish. He has declared that this is what he wants every year! I used homemade toffee and homemade vanilla wafers using recipes from 'Zaar.

This is a perfect ending to a southern meal! I can usually take or leave banana pudding desserts, but not only did I take this one; I had a second helping! Very tasty.

This was great!!! My BFF doesn't even like banana pudding, but she had two (small) helpings. It was a great dessert for pulled pork and brisket.
