Evenly arrange 9 graham cracker squares in a 9x9 inch square cake pan. In a medium bowl, combine bananas and strawberries. Arrange fruit mixture evenly over chocolate "crust". In same bowl, combine dry pudding mix, dry milk powder, undrained pineapple and water. Mix well using a wire whisk. Spread pudding mixture evenly over fruit. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. Evenly spread whipped topping over set filling. Crush remaining graham crackers into fine crumbs and along with pecans sprinkle evenly over top. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Superb Banana Split Dessert

Sounds good, but have one question. Do you taste the dry milk powder? I have found some recipes that call for this have that strong taste of the powder. Maybe it is my overreaction to growing up on milk made from the skim milk powder. All my 5 sibs and I gag when we think of it . :~) (08/04/2008)
