Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

I love an easy recipe. I especially love an easy recipe with just a few ingredients. Even better? When it tastes great on top of it all! :) These Chocolate Covered Banana Bites are a fantastic snack, especially when you are craving something sweet and chocolaty but don’t want to ruin your diet. Chocolatey? Chocolatie? Choklutty. There. That’s it. 
Anyway, I broke down and bought my first jar of coconut oil this week just for this recipe that I saw on The View From Great Island. I know some people live and die by the stuff, but I just never got past all the hype. If you can cook, bake, do dental work, wash your face, unclog a drain and fix your car engine with the same thing…I don’t know. Call me a cynic. :) OK, that may be a little extreme, but you get my drift. However, it’s my new favorite thing for dipping chocolate. Because it’s a solid below 76° it hardens immediately upon contact with frozen or cold things. Like bananas. Behold, the secret of the magic shell! So, even at $5 for a…

Old-fashioned Banana Pudding

I don’t know if this recipe for banana pudding is really “old-fashioned,” but it is the same recipe my husband grew up with, and he’s sorta old, so…. I made this for our New Year’s Eve party and the bowl was scraped clean when we left after midnight.  This is a simple crowd favorite.  There’s just something familiar and comforting about the flavors of pudding, bananas and good ol’ Nilla Wafers.  (By the way, am I the only one that struggles with the word banana?  It always end up as banananana and then I have to go back and eliminate “ana’s” until the squiggly red line goes away.) 
INGREDIENTS 2 small boxes (3.4 oz) French Vanilla pudding 3 cups milk, cold 1 can (12 oz) sweetened condensed milk 1 (12 0z) tub Cool Whip 4-6 ripe bananas, sliced 1 box Nilla Wafers
PREPARATION 1. In a bowl, mix pudding, milk and condensed milk well. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.
2. Fold in Cool Whip
3. In a trifle bowl (or any deep bowl), layer pudding, bananas and cookies, ending with pudding as the final layer.
4. Chill…
