Peanut Butter-Chocolate Banana Pie

OMG – YUMMY! and Easy!

I loved it! I tried to recreate with small pie shells, but didn’t have as much success, but there was something wrong with the pudding, it never set.

Anyway – You have to try this!

1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 (3.4 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding (could use banana or banana cream pudding)
3 bananas, sliced
1 cup milk
Cool whip or whipped topping
Lemon juice
Place the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for about 35 to 40 seconds until creamy enough to mix together with a spoon.  Spread in the bottom of the pie crust. Peel and slice the bananas in a bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice to keep them from turning black.  In another bowl with an electric mixer, mix together the pudding mix with the one cup of milk.  Fold in the bananas and put pudding in refrigerator for about five minutes until it starts to set up. Spoon into pie crust and spread with a spoon.  Spread whipped topping over the entire pie.  Can garnish with banana slices or chocolate chips.  Put in refrigerator for a couple hours before serving.  Makes about 8 servings. Enjoy!
Note:  You can use your imagination with this pie. You could crush vanilla wafers and add to the pudding along with the bananas. You could also add nuts. It is very rich and creamy and so easy to make!
