"OTCC: A couple of desserts"

It's hot, and I don't feel like cooking. So, for my turn at the OTCC, I'm giving you a couple of easy desserts that don't require a burner, grill, oven or even a microwave.

The first is one I got from Taste of Home magazine several years ago, and is one of my favorites:

Chocolate Cherry Torte
56 chocolate-covered graham cracker cookies (about 1 pound), crushed
1 cup butter, melted
2 envelopes whipped topping mix (Dream Whip)
1 cup cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cans (21 ounces each) cherry pie filling

Set aside 1/4 cup crushed cookies for topping. In a large bowl, combine remaining cookies and butter; spread into a 13x9 dish. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the whipped topping mixes, milk and vanilla; beat on low speed until blended. Beat on high for 4 minutes or until thickened and stiff peaks form. Add cream cheese; beat until smooth.

Spread over crust; top with pie filling. Sprinkle with reserved cookies. Cover and refrigerate for 12-24 hours before serving. Yield: 12-16 servings.

This second one I got from a co-worker. I haven't actually made this yet (doing that later today or tomorrow), but when she makes it, it's delicious!

Banana Pudding
In large bowl, mix (in this order) 3 small packages of instant vanilla pudding (either French vanilla or plain or combination of), 3 cups milk, 8 ounces sour cream, 1 carton Cool Whip (8 ounces), 1 tsp vanilla. Whisk together until well blended. in 9 x 13 pan, put a layer of vanilla wafers, top with 3 bananas, sliced. Pour half of pudding mixture over this, repeat layers. (You will use 1 12 oz box of vanilla wafers and 6 bananas.)
