A lot of people like these banana cream pies, or chocolate banana cream pies, I've never been a fan. I mean I like the banana flavor with chocolate, but I hate the texture of banana in most deserts. This recipe is my solution to yummy chocolate banana flavor without the banana part I guess.

Ingredients

1
9 inch pie crust
2 medium
ripe bananas, smashed
3
egg yolks
1 c
cream cheese, softened
1 c
unsalted butter, softened
3 Tbsp
unsweetened cocao powder
1
3 oz package of chocolate instant pudding
1 c
sugar
1/2 c
powdered sugar
3 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
white chocolate chips, melted in a double boiler
2 Tbsp
chocolate jimmies for garnish (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350'F
2Bake pie crust off for 8 minutes until golden.
Place on wrack to cool
3Prepare chocolate pudding according to directions. Do not refrigerate. Set aside.
4In a small mixing bowl cream together bananas, egg yolks and granulated sugar.
5Add 2 teaspoons of the vanilla extract to the and stir until fully incorporated.
6In a large mixing bowl add pudding and heavy cream. Stir in unsalted butter and cream cheese.
7With a hand blender stir in the banana mixture. Add cocoa and blend until completely incorporated.
8Pour Mixture out into the cooled pie crust.
9Bake for 30-35 minutes, until it puffs up slightly and is firm, not liquid anymore.
10For topping:
While pie is in the oven: cream together remaining cream cheese, remaining vanilla, melted white chocolate chips, and powdered sugar. Mix until completely incorporated.

Side Note: I suggest starting your double boiler to melt your white chocolate while the crust is baking off. It should be ready by the time you are mixing your topping.
11Once pie has cooled, spoon topping over the cooled pie and garnish with jimmies.
12Chill before serving.
