Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Pudding Pie

This pie is easy to make and combines three great flavors into one dessert.  It's so good that I found myself eating pie the next morning for breakfast.

Yield: 8 servings


Ingredients


  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 8 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 2 (3.4 oz. each) packages banana instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup whipped topping.  (Be sure to thaw it out in advance!)

Directions


  1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter.  Press into the bottom & sides of a 9" pie plate.  Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.
  2. Slice bananas.  Arrange the slices on the bottom of the pie crust.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the peanut butter and chocolate.  Melt in the microwave on high for 60-90 seconds until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.  Spoon over the bananas.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the milk and the instant pudding mix.  Whisk together for two minutes until it begins to thicken.  Fold in the whipped topping.  Pour into the pie crust.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.   Serve cold with additional whipped topping and nuts if desired.
