  2. I normally use two or three of the inner packages.
  3. In a large bowl, mix pudding mix with the half and half, reserving 1/4 cup of the cream.
  4. Add the can of sweetened condensed milk and fold in 3/4 of the carton of Cool Whip.
  5. Put aside to let the pudding set.
  6. Using a large container with airtight lid (I use 6-qt. Rubbermaid container), pour the reserved 1/4 cup half and half into the bottom then add a layer of whole graham crackers on top of the cream.
  7. Slice 4-5 bananas randomly onto the crackers; add layer of pudding mixture.
  8. Repeat all layers, beginning with crackers and ending with pudding with bananas between.
  9. Spread remainder of Cool Whip on top of last layer of pudding and top with light sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs.
  10. Cover and keep chilled until 1/2 hour before serving time.
  11. The banana pudding is better if it is allowed to sit for a few hours in order to soften the crackers.
