Chocolate Banana Cream Pie! (by: Buddy)

Chocolate Chip Banana PieI love having my kids in the kitchen with me – especially when we create! Buddy was  called upon to help me come up with a dessert using some really ripe bananas.

Not only was the dessert a hit – but he also wrote this blog post to practice writing and his keyboarding skills for school. Now that’s what I call a win-win!

Hi! I’m Buddy. I’m 8.

I like to make dessert. This one was kind of easy.

First you smush 1 sleeve of Oreo cookies. Mix it with 1/4 cup of melted margarine or butter and push it (with your hands or a fork or both!) over the bottom and up the sides of a pie pan. You don’t have to push it up all the way to the top.

Put the crust in the microwave on high for 2 minutes, take it out and let it cool.

Mix one big package of Jell-O Instant Vanilla Chocolate Chip pudding and pie filling (3.91 ounces) with 1 3/4 cups cold milk. Set aside.

Slice 2 bananas and put them in the crust. (You can cut the banana’s in the pan or you can cut them on a cutting board and put them in the crust.)

Then you pour the pudding over the bananas and spread it all over them so that none of the bananas are showing. Put the pie in the refrigerator and that’s it!

We had my pie for dessert on Sunday and everybody loved it!

I hope you like it, too!
