Summer is my favorite time of year to eat pie. Especially a cool and creamy refrigerated pie. And if it has peanut butter and chocolate– I’m in heaven. This wondrous pie will make you feel like a kid again with layer after layer of creaminess. You’ll be licking every last trace off of your spoon.

It all starts with a piecrust made from Nutter Butter cookies. Then comes a layer of fudge sauce. The kind you use on ice cream. Next is a layer of sliced banana, because they will maybe make you feel a little less guilty about eating such a sinful pie. Ok, maybe not. But I do love banana with chocolate and peanut butter.

On top of the banana is my favorite layer- a fantastically creamy and rich but light and smooth peanut butter layer made with vanilla pudding mix, peanut butter, sweetened condensed milk, and just enough cream cheese to add richness. It is spectacular.

But we’re not done yet. As if this pie doesn’t already have enough creaminess, there is a layer of freshly whipped cream and a sprinkling of chocolate curls. It’s a pie Elvis would have loved!

A slice of this Creamy Peanut Butter Banana Pie makes an incredible summer dessert.
