Or at least I hope Elvis would be proud of my chocolate banana peanut butter pie. I mean, I am at least.
You see, I’ve always loved peanut butter chocolate pie. Something only my Godfather is allowed to make and mostly is only consumed on Thanksgiving. So I decided to do a different spin on it, also with a shortcut that makes it so much simpler. You see, there are these things called pre-made graham cracker crusts. Normally, I use those, but seeing as I made a crust from scratch recently…. well, we’re going to use that one now. (See recipe here.) But don’t feel obligated to use that recipe, graham cracker is just as good.
Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Pie
1 package of banana instant pudding mix
1 package of chocolate instant pudding mix
4 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter
Place four tablespoons of creamy peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. In 15 second increments, zap the peanut butter, stirring between each cycle until smooth. Pour in the bottom of the pie crust.
In a separate bowl, pour the banana and chocolate pudding mixes. Stir those together and then add milk and stir that until mixed. Pour into pie pan, smooth top.
You can also top with whip cream (I love Ready Whip) right before serving. Those looking for something fancy can cut pieces of banana and place eight around the pie (one for each slice).
