Peanut Butter Banana Whoopie Pies

So many of my friends love banana. Like too die for emotions regarding it. I am here to let you know, in case you have missed my previous grumblings, I am not one of these people. In a smoothie, yes. Covered in dark chocolate and frozen. Yes, again. In my bread. Nope, not happening. Or pretty much any other way.

But then...there is banana pudding. That whole imitation nonsense. Guess what? Ok!, not my favorite, but I can deal with it. Especially after, oh...you know, there is whip cream and peanut butter added to the mix. Twist my arm and count me in. But only if you must...

So, with all the banana request lately...I wanted to at least try my hand at coming up with recipes I was willing to try and I am happy to say I found one.

Peanut butter cookie (mix or homemade)
cup chocolate chips
1 pkge banana pudding
6-8 oz cream cheese(softened)
1 1/2 cup whipping cream

Make your PB cookies and add in the chocolate chips. Bake and cool. To make the filling, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the pudding mix and 1/2 cup of whipping cream. Beat till combined and add in rest of cream ,beating till thick.

Place dollop on cookie and top with other cookie to spread filling.

Things I learned while from this....if placed in freezer overnight- it tastes like an ice cream sandwich. Oh my gosh, it was so very yummy and the banana flavor was less obvious. If you are a banana fan, then you should probably use 2 packs of pudding for a more intense flavor. Plus, instead of chocolate chips, you could always use reeses or even white chocolate.

Also, you could make the banana pudding with 1 cup of milk, let set for a few minutes and then mix with cool whip for a more simple filling. 

Just be sure to keep covered in fridge so they don't dry out.

and the funny thing is when I did spell check, I only spelled one word wrong, but over and over: banana. I was typing this in such a hurry that I really wanted it to be spelled banaba.
