I’m so excited to be here today because for one thing I adore Nikki and this site so I can’t wait to get to know her sweet readers, and number 2 it’s always fun to guest post for someone who is snuggling a new baby. I’m definitely going to have to have a little snuggle time with the new little man too. I can’t wait to meet him. There’s nothing better than a new baby snuggled up under your chin and into your neck, am I right? (That didn’t sound weird did it? You all know what I mean!)
Anyway, I’m Carrian from Sweet Basil, and my site is all about food like our Teriyaki Casserole and Reese’s Krispies, with a little lifestyle and health and fitness, like my 6 moves to get thighs like a dancer post, all mixed in. We love delicious food, time together as a family and staying healthy so pretty much we blog real life.
Anyway, let’s get on with it. This dessert is the bomb dot com and in case you are younger and don’t know about bomb dot com it means it’s totally awesome. Kind of like the first nokia phone I ever had with changeable faceplates. THOSE were the days. And yes, if you follow me on instagram (@ohsweetbasil) you’ll know I love those old throwbacks. This dessert is totally a throwback. It’s an older recipe but there’s something so delightful about it that although it always looks like a big pan of fluffiness everyone always sits around eating it until it’s gone.
Which in my humble opinion is the sign of a really good dessert. I’ve always been that girl that is done with dessert only to return to the pan with a fork to sneak a bite. Then the line is crooked so clearly I have to take another nibble to straighten it out, am I right? This is totally that dessert. Just wait until you take a perfect bite with oreo crust, fluffy center filling, a perfect piece of creamy banana and an oreo crumble on top. You’ll be back, and you’ll love it. And the best part? It’s 10x better the next day! YES! I love it when I can make something the day before a party or get together!
- 1 Cup whole milk
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 bag big marshmallows
- 1 pint whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 bananas, sliced into small quarters (bite sized-ish), or medallions
- 1 package oreo cookies, crushed (RESERVE 1 row of cookies for the topping)
- ¼ cup melted butter
- Mix the crushed oreos and melted butter and press into bottom of a 9x13 pan.
- Mix the milk and egg yolks in a saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until ALMOST melted (you want a few lumps left and the mixture is hot so it will continue to melt them so better to have them a little bigger and pull it off the heat). COOL. Whip the cream with the sugar together in a medium bowl. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the marshmallow mix, then add in the whipped cream. Layer over oreo crust with quarters slices of bananas. Roughly break up reserved row of oreos and top the whole dessert with the broken pieces. Let it chill in the fridge for 1 hr or up to one day. The second day is our favorite to enjoy it.
