Creamy Banana Walnut Squares

1 package (14 ounces) banana quick bread and muffin mix (plus ingredients to make bread)
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 container (8 ounces) sour cream
1 package (3.4 ounces) banana instant pudding and pie filling
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 medium bananas, sliced, divided
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare banana bread mix according to package directions; pour into square baker, spreading evenly. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to cooling rack. Immediately press bread down in center using spatula, forming a flat surface. Cool completely.

Set aside 1/2 cup of the whipped topping for later use. In a bowl, combine remaining whipped topping and sour cream. Add pudding mix and cinnamon; whisk until smooth.

Slice bananas. Chop walnuts. Spread 1/2 cup of the pudding mixture over banana bread; top with a single layer of banana slices. Sprinkle with half of the walnuts. Attach open star tip to a decorator; fill with 1 cup of the pudding mixture and set aside. Spread remaining pudding mixture over banana layer.

Combine reserved whipped topping and chocolate morsels in a small bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted; mix until smooth. Drizzle glaze over pudding layer; sprinkle with remaining nuts.

Using a serrated knife, cut cake into 16 squares. Using a decorator, pipe a small star of filling onto each square; place one slice of banana onto each star. Serve.
