If you’re craving a decadent dessert that’s easy to make and sure to impress your guests, this Banana Caramel Trifle is the perfect choice. With layers of creamy caramel pudding, sweet bananas, moist pound cake, and a delightful toffee crunch, it’s a dessert that combines flavors and textures in every bite.
- 25 KRAFT Caramels
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 3/8 oz JELL-O vanilla instant pudding
- 8 oz COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
- 16 oz frozen pound cake, thawed
- 2 bananas
- 2 tbsp toffee bits
- Begin by creating a luscious caramel sauce. Microwave the KRAFT Caramels and milk in a microwaveable bowl on HIGH for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute. Continue microwaving for an additional 2 minutes or until the caramels are completely melted, and the sauce is well blended. Then, add the dry JELL-O vanilla instant pudding mix and whisk vigorously for 2 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool for about 15 minutes.
- Gently fold in 1 1/2 cups of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping into the caramel pudding mixture and refrigerate for 20 minutes or until it’s nicely chilled.
- While your caramel pudding cools, slice the bananas and cut the pound cake into three horizontal layers. You’ll be stacking these layers, filling them with the luscious caramel sauce and banana slices. This is where the magic begins as each layer soaks up the delightful flavors.
- After stacking your cake layers with the caramel sauce and bananas, it’s time to create the finishing touches. Spread the remaining COOL WHIP Whipped Topping over the top layer and generously sprinkle the toffee bits for that perfect sweet and crunchy contrast.
This Banana Caramel Trifle is a dessert masterpiece that combines creamy, sweet, and crunchy elements to create a memorable treat. Whether you’re serving it at a family gathering, potluck, or just indulging on your own, it’s a delightful dessert that will leave everyone asking for seconds. Enjoy!
