All I can tell you about this recipe is that everyone I serve it to LOVES IT! My sister-in-law, Kay, made this recipe for a family bridal shower for my daughter two years ago. This is the go-to dessert if you need something easy, quick, and elegant. I make mine in my trifle dish in layers because it looks so pretty and then, you die a little death when you taste it because it is just that good!
DEATH BY CHOCOLATE
1 package of brownie mix baked in a 9 x 13 inch pan
2 small boxes instant chocolate pudding prepared according to directions on package
2 med. size containers of Cool Whip topping
1 small package of butter brickle chips
6 Heath candy bars, crumbled
Break brownies into pieces and layer ½ of each of the ingredients in a trifle bowl or large glass salad bowl as listed above starting with the brownies. Repeat the layers with the second half of ingredients. Chill until serving time.

Happy Birthday, Tim! You old devil.
Today is my husband’s 52nd birthday and he has requested that I make Miss Evelyn’s Banana Pudding instead of a cake. Now, I don’t have a problem with this because everyone loves, Loves, LOVES this recipe. Here’s the deal about it. It is cold from start to finish. No cooking of the pudding required. My children prefer this recipe to the traditional Banana Pudding recipe. I still prefer my Banana Pudding still warm with soft vanilla wafers, but this one will do too. So, give it a try this summer. I think you’ll like it.
Miss Evelyn’s Banana Pudding
1 box Instant Jello Vanilla Pudding (small – prepare according to package directions)
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 carton of Cool Whip
1 box Keebler Vanilla Wafers
Bananas – (no green on stems please. But not soft either.)
Line dish with vanilla wafers and layer in bananas (sliced). Prepare pudding according to directions on the box. Mix in the Eagle Brand Milk and Cool Whip. Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas and vanilla wafers. Add more bananas and wafers on top if desired. Refrigerate for an hour or so until chillled.
Recipe from the Kitchen of Evelyn Bookout, family friend.
