Banana pudding is one of our favorite dessert recipes. The combination of cream, banana, and wafer is a classic. These little cookie sandwiches capture the flavors all in a bite sized snack that is fun for little ones or for bringing to a summer BBQ or cookout.

  • Vanilla wafers: Use classic Nilla Wafers or an Organic Vanilla Wafer.
  • Heavy Cream: Both heavy cream and whipping cream will work.
  • Powdered Sugar: Confectioner’s sugar melts into the mousse nicely. You can substitute with granulated white sugar or organic cane sugar, just add the sugar when you start mixing the cream to help it blend in completely.
  • Instant Banana Pudding: A box mix of instant banana pudding makes this

How to Make Banana Pudding Cookie Sandwiches

Banana mousse piped onto vanilla wafers.
  • Make Banana Mousse: pour the heavy cream into a mixing bowl, and using a stand or hand mixer, start mixing until cream is a soft whipped cream. Add in the powdered sugar and instant pudding mix. Then continue to mix until soft peaks form in the mousse.
  • Piping: Add the banana mousse to a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe the mousse onto half of the vanilla wafers. Use the remaining wafers to create sandwiches.
  • Sprinkles: a fun option that is not necessary, but make the banana pudding cookies colorful! Simply roll the cookies in some colorful sprinkles (or these dye-free sprinkles!)

  1. Welcome to Texas! We are glad you are here. Enjoyed reading this recipe and I can’t wait to try it. I’m just wondering… How many days can we store in the refrigerator?

  2. Just wanting to make sure, the instant pudding, you just add the mix? Or do u make the pudding & then add it? They look very delicious!

  3. What is the consistency of the mousse? Is it thick enough to use inside a cake as a filling? Can I make it a day or two ahead and it will hold up?

    1. Great questions!! The mousse is really thick. Thicker than whipped cream is. It should hold up nicely as a filling for a cake. I’ve been able to keep cookie cups with the filling for 3-4 days before with this filling keeping it’s consistency. Just keep it refrigerated. So a day or two should be perfectly fine 🙂

  4. The recipe says you can make ahead and store in the fridge. My question is, did the cookie get mushy? Want to make these for a party and it would be easier to have them done ahead of time. Thanks!

    1. Hi Heather! Yes they can be made ahead of time. They do start to get a little mushy after the first day. But if you’re making them the day of the party and storing them until it’s time they’ll be just fine 🙂 Enjoy!

  5. Just finished making these and the Twix cookie cups for a 4th cookout. They were super easy to make!! I tripled the banana mousse because I was worried I wouldn’t have enough. Thank goodness I had plenty because I get to keep some for myself!!! 🙂 thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!!!

    1. Yay!! Sounds like you had quite the cookout for the 4th! So glad you enjoyed. Isn’t that banana mousse just amazing! If you have some left check out the Chunky Monkey bites. Basically just put some of the mousse on brownies and it’s DE-licious!
