Chocolate Banana Pudding

Pudding has always been a snack of choice for me. It reminds me a lot of being at my grandmother's house when I was younger. Her fridge was always stocked with pudding cups. Anyways I saw this pudding a while back and I have not stopped thinking about it. It's definitely a must make dessert. I found the recipe on Today's Nest. She makes it from scratch but says you can get close to the same results from a box. Personally I like to take the easy route most of the time so I'd probably go for the box.
2 cups milk
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
16 oz. heavy whipping cream
1/4 sugar
ChewySoft Chocolate Fudge Cookies
3 or 4 medium bananas sliced.

Mix sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl. Beat the egg in a separate bowl. Set aside. Heat milk in saucepan over medium heat until just before boiling. Slowly pour sugar mixture into milk while whisking. Slowly pour 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into beaten egg while whisking vigorously. Pour the egg mixture back into the hot mixture while whisking. Bring back to simmer and heat until mixture coast the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and butter. Pour into bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressing it directly against the pudding. Allow to cool and set up in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before using. Whip cream and 1/4 cup sugar to soft peaks. Fold 1/2 cream into pudding. Place a small amount of pudding on the bottom of your serving container. Top with a cookie or layer of crumbled cookie. Place banana slices on top of the cookie and top with pudding. Add a thin layer of whipped cream and top with crumbled cookie. Keep refrigerated.
