Banana Pudding Brownies

            For those who have even the slightest sweet tooth, this is a recipe for those who are not faint of heart. The great taste of chocolate brownie combined with banana pudding.  

Truthfully, I do not think there are any two tastes that go better together than chocolate and brownie.  When you put a creamy banana pudding together with ooey and gooey brownies, there is no other way of combining these two.

            Your taste for brownies will never be the same again, no matter how hard others try. This is a straightforward recipe that is creative and super easy. Of course, I did cut out a few steps and make this so much easier by using store bought brownie mix and pudding mix. 

I do want to suggest that you prepare ahead of time and be sure that you have all the ingredients ready.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How do I thicken the pudding to make it work in this recipe?

I mixed together 6 ounces of cream cheese and ⅓ cup of milk and then mixed it in the banana pudding mix with it. This will create more of a cake/brownie texture.

            Can I use a different pudding?

Of course you can! This is your choice, vanilla would be great, but to me, so would pistachio. Have fun and experiment with different flavors.

            Should I mix it all together?

NO! You will be swirling the cheesecake/pudding through the brownie batter to make it more of a marbled look.

            Do I make the pudding?

No! Again, follow the recipe and mix according to directions. The pudding will be mixed in with the cheesecake batter.
