You can never add too many bananas! :)

I was working at a camp once and they wanted some kind of dessert and all they had on hand was some canned vanilla pudding, a half a case of animal crackers and a whole lot of bananas. I layered them and served up some pretty good banana pudding! They ate every scrap and licked their bowls. It was camp afterall--theyd probably eat anything!

But the animal crackers were a good cookie to use for the pudding, and I've used them since in my regular scratch pudding recipe.
