1-2 boxes vanilla wafers (you may not use them all...but I like to get two just in case)
In a large bowl, mix the milk and vanilla pudding together until well blended and let it set for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then fold in the whipped topping and the condensed milk until the mixture has a creamy consistency (should look like a cake batter).
In a large pan (I usually use a 9x13) layer the vanilla wafers, then the sliced bananas, then the pudding mixture. You should finish with a layer of vanilla wafers at the top.
Place the banana pudding in the refrigerator and let it set for 8 hours (or preferably overnight).
Ah yes, banana pudding...greatest dessert ever made! The only difference between your recipe and mine is that I prefer to use Cook and Serve pudding rather than instant, the way my family always made it.
Thanks for making me hungry, BTW, because now I'm going to have to make one!
MOP - no, you don't crush the wafers - layer them whole. You could top it with crumbled wafers though.
