1hr 20mins
4 Tarts

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) boxinstant banana cream pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 14 teaspoon lemon yellow gel food coloring
  • 1 (14 1/8 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 cup black candy melt candy
  • 2 bananas
  • mint leaf (to garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease four 5-inch tart pans and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Add pudding mix, milk, and yellow gel food coloring to a large bowl and whisk until combined and thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap so that the plastic touches the top of the pudding and refrigerate until thickened, about 30 minutes.
  3. Unroll pie dough. Use a 6-inch cookie cutter to cut 4 rounds of dough total.
  4. Press rounds of dough firmly into tart pans. Prick dough with fork to prevent bubbles from forming. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely before removing from tart pans.
  5. Place a printed checkerboard template under a sheet of parchment. Using a 5-inch cookie cutter, draw four circles on the parchment.
  6. Add candy melts to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, whisking in between, until melted. Transfer to a piping bag. Using the template, pipe out the 4 rounds of checkerboard pattern. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.
  7. Peel and cut the bananas into slices. Arrange an even layer of banana slices in the bottom of each cooled crust. Cover with a layer of banana pudding.
  8. Using a small offset, carefully separate the set checkerboard rounds from the parchment. Place on top of the banana pudding layer, smooth side up.
  9. Garnish each tart with a small sprig of mint and enjoy!
