Author Notes: I was given this recipe several years ago by a friend's grandmother. I make this pie for every family gathering, and it is always a big hit. —Jason
Food52 Review: This recipe is an easy, delicious combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas, topped with homemade whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. I followed the exact ingredients and directions without any issues. The pudding is great -- thick, very tasty, and dense. The pie holds together well and it looks appealing when served. The banana flavor is just right. I can see how this recipe would be a family favorite. I've added the recipe to my personal "Best of the Best" recipe file. Indulge yourself today and make this pie! —Hippy in the Kitchen
