How to Make Chocolate Banana Pie
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.
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.
