This recipe was awesome. Super moist! Another reviewer was confused about the frozen pound cake. It's pound cake that is frozen and found in your grocer's frozen food section. I used Sara Lee's light pound cake, but there were other frozen pound cake options which I'm sure would work just as well.

I made these with a few revisions the 2nd time. Made my own pound cake, used bananna sugar free pudding and topped with chopped walnuts, everyone I have shared them with thought they were delicious! As did we. Sharing them with Feather River Hospital Volunteers tomorrowin Paradise, CA mmmm good!

A small banana is key! The inside of mine turned out gooey; not that the kids cared. I was hoping for more flavor as well on the inside. The amount of chocolate was perfect and I recommend using the footnote regarding the plastic fork.

I made these tonight, used a store made marble pound cake - neither hubby or myself liked them. After eating one, I thought may be good with peanut butter instead of banana, but don't think I'll try these again.

This was just Ok to me. A little too chewy. I poured the milk into the pudding and it just didnt seem right. Super thick. I doubled checked the recipe, Yep, only 1/2 cup so I went with 1/2 cup. I dont think I would make them again.
