Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cream Pie....oh yes, you read that correctly.

ACK!!! Be careful when you make this dessert, people may attack in order to get it away from you. Dangerous stuff!!  Also DO NOT, under any circumstances, make this while you are alone!!!  You WILL attempt to eat it all!!  I made this for a potluck dinner and just like the apple crisp it went FAST.... so AGAIN, this bad picture taker only got a pic of what was leftover.  SIGH!!! and I did such a good job on decorating it!! Oh well, it really only matters how it tasted and that was OMG.... yup, OMG, not sure what else to say....OMG  did I say that yet?

Found this recipe on the good old site.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cream Pie


35 vanilla wafers, finely crushed (about 1 cup)  (I used Nilla cookies)
1/4 cup butter melted
2 oz bakers semi sweet chocolate, divided (I used a handful of chocolate chips)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, (I used natural peanut butter just to take down the sugar content a bit)
2 bananas cut in half length-wise (I used 4 to make sure it covered the crust)
2 pkg (102g) vanilla instant pudding
2 cups cold milk
2 cups Cool Whip, thawed, divided
2 Tbsp salted peanuts coarsely chopped


Heat oven to 350 degrees F

Mix wafer crumbs (I crushed them in a ziplock bag by rolling over them with a rolling pin) and butter until blended and press into a 9 inch pie pan, bake 5-8 min, or until golden brown. Cool completely.  Meanwhile, make chocolate curls from 1/2 oz chocolate.

Microwave remaining 1 1/2oz chocolate and PB 30 seconds, stir if not smooth repeat for another 30 seconds until mixture is smooth.  Place bananas in crust; drizzle with melted chocolate.

Beat pudding mixes and milk in a large bowl with whisk for 2 mins.  Stir in 1 cup Cool Whip.  Spread over bananas; top with remaining cool whip.

Refrigerate (IF you can fight off the masses that long) 3 hours.  Top with chocolate curls and chopped peanuts just before serving.

I highly suggest wearing riot gear while serving, it can get violent!!

Excuse the pic it WAS pretty, but this was all that was left!! lol!
