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.

    For 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.
