Choco-Banana Cream Pie
Servings: 8 Prep 10 mins Bake 450°F 9 mins to 11 mins Chill 4 hrs or overnight

Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce 9-inch refrigerated piecrust
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 3.4 ounce packages chocolate cook-and-serve pudding and pie-filling mix
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 bananas, coarsely mashed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • banana slices for garnish, optional

Make It

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Unroll crust into 9-inch pie pan; crimp edges; prick bottom with fork. Bake at 450 degrees F for 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool.

2. Meanwhile, finely chop 1 ounce of chocolate; set aside for garnish. Coarsely chop remaining 3 ounces of chocolate and place in a nonstick saucepan along with pudding mixes. Slowly stir in milk.

3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches a full boil and is very thick. Remove from heat and quickly stir in mashed bananas.

4. Pour into the cooled 9-inch pie shell. Cover filling directly with waxed paper to prevent skin from forming and refrigerate until set, 4 hours or overnight.

5. To serve pie, remove and discard waxed paper. In medium-size bowl, beat cream and confectioners sugar until stiff. Spread over pie filling and sprinkle reserved finely chopped chocolate over whipped cream. Garnish with additional banana slices, if desired.
