Peanut Butter - Banana Pudding

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Alan in SW Florida

A twist on the old-fashioned banana pudding, using chocolate wafers, instead of vanilla ones, and peanut butter. Prep time does not include chilling.

This is excellent. I will probably take it to a potluck or family reunion. I was craving banana pudding and decided to try this one because it also included peanut butter and chocolate. It was worth the effort to make the custard from scratch. I could not find chocolate wafers and used chocolate bear-shaped cookies. I also softened the peanut butter in the microwave and poured it over the cookies instead of spreading between two wafers. Thanks for a great twist on regular banana pudding!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan; whisk in eggs and milk, and cook, whisking constantly, over low heat until thickened (about 25 minutes.) Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Set custard aside.
  2. Spread a 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter between 2 chocolate wafers, forming a sandwich; repeat with remaining peanut butter and chocolate wafers.
  3. Place sandwich cookies in the bottom of a 3-quart glass bowl or trifle bowl; top with banana slices. Pour custard over bananas. Cover and chill 4 hours.
  4. Spread whipped topping evenly over the custard and sprinkle with peanuts before serving.
