Just three ingredients are all you'll need for our quick and easy Chocolate Banana Puddings: store-bought chocolate wafers, individual pudding cups, and bananas. Start by crushing the chocolate wafers until they have a coarse texture. You can either drop them in the food processor or give them a few hammers with a meat tenderizer. Our recipe makes 4 servings, but you can customize it to make as many servings as you need. This recipe is so easy that you'll want to keep the ingredients on hand for a treat any night of the week. It comes together in 10 minutes and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Get the kids involved by letting them create their own Chocolate Banana Puddings. Set out the ingredients and walk them through the process before letting them try their hand at assembling. If your little ones are big banana fans, put out extra for them to nibble on as they create their masterpiece. We have a feeling the chocolate wafers will be a big hit too—play it safe and don't leave the entire package out or else you might find your little chefs are more like cookie monsters.
