Have you ever been to Magnolia Bakery in NYC? The first time I went I just had a cupcake and was not super impressed. It was good but not amazing. But the second time I went I got their banana pudding and it is to die for. So yummy. I’ve been wanting to try to make it at home for a while and finally found a recipe that looked really good.
This recipe is adapted from that and I also subbed the vanilla wafers out with animal cookies. The non-circus kind – which I hardly ever buy because the frosted ones are just so good. But I thought these would be fun to try and they made a good substitution! They get softer in almost the same way vanilla wafers do and just make the dessert a little extra fun for kids.
And I can say that Pierce liked it a lot! He even came in mid-shoot and snuck a taste!
