Banana Split Pancake Stackers

By Brooke McLay |

The before-school and after-school minutes at my house can be super chaotic. Kids are grabbing backpacks, searching for socks, packing lunches, frantically finishing homework. It feels, sometimes, like there isn’t a minute to stop, smooch on my kids and remind them how entirely I adore them.

I happen to love any recipe that not only gives our meals and afterschool snacktimes that extra touch, but also shows my kids that I care enough to add that extra touch. This fun Banana Split Pancake Stackers recipe is the perfect solution for those moments when I want to pump up the fun factor in an otherwise crazy day. They take minutes to make because they use pre-cooked mini pancakes, sliced bananas, and a smidgen of chocolate ice cream topping. Adding a few dollops of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping makes the stackers look and taste fantastically fab. It lends a little bit of flair and a lot of deliciousness to this party-on-a-plate treat.

To serve up a plate of these Banana Split Pancake Stackers, here’s everything you need to know to make them in your own kitchen:

Start with a tub of COOL WHIP. Thaw it, according to package directions, if needed.

Heat 9 precooked, frozen mini pancakes in the microwave until warm. Add a dollop of COOL WHIP on top of one pancake, then a few thinly sliced bananas, top with another pancake and repeat the COOL WHIP and banana layers. Add a pancake on top of your stack.

Drizzle a small amount of Chocolate Ice Cream topping over your pancake stackers.

Let that chocolate drizzle down the sides and create some style for your final product.

Sprinkle with your favorite rainbow sprinkles. Top with a final dollop of COOL WHIP. Add a strawberry or marachino cherry to the top of your stackers. Serve them up immediately and show your kids how fun a mom you really are!

What you add makes it. #coolwhipmoms
