FRUIT SALAD WITH ALMONDS




DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BANANA CREAM CAKE

I don't think I had so much trouble making this cake as much as I struggle to come up with a name for it. This cake is very easy to make and the taste is exquisite, specially for chocolate and banana lovers.

The bottom part is made of GHIRARDELLI Double Chocolate Brownie Mix and I just add 1 cup of chopped walnuts for more texture ...

The middle part is made of 1 pk. instant Banana Cream pudding, 2 cups milk and 2 cups cool whip...

The top is made of 1 pk. instant Chocolate pudding, 2 cups milk and 2 cups cool whip...

I decorate with cool whip and fresh strawberries...


...and by the time I'm done posting this more then half of this cake is gone!!! I better get going to have a bite from what ever is left of it...

Have a nice weekend everybody!
