Chunky Monkey Pie

Oh-my-goodness this pie is divine.

As you might know my husband, aka Baby Cakes, BCakes for short, loves peanut butter so I am always finding and saving peanut butter recipes to make "one day". This pies "one day" was Friday when we had dinner guests over. It was amazing.

There is not one thing I would change about the recipe. I WILL try to make it look prettier next time but I won't be changing a thing about it other than that. This pie will be traveling with me from now on to picnics, dinners and anywhere else I can think of taking it. Yum-eeee.

Chunky Monkey Pie
recipe from Our Best Bites

1 4-serving size box of instant vanilla pudding
1 c. cold water
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
2 cookie crusts. You can use anything--graham crackers, Nilla Wafers, shortbread, even Oreo.
Lots of bananas
1 pint whipping cream
1/3 c. powdered sugar
honey roasted nuts

In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, cold water, peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk. Mix well and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes.

In another bowl, whip 1 c. of whipping cream until soft peaks form.

Slice the bananas (probably 4 small bananas or 2 large bananas) and layer them on the bottom of the crusts. Set aside.

Remove the pudding mix from the fridge and gently fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture until well-combined.

Now divide the mixture between the two pie crusts.

Prepare the sweetened whipped cream with the remaining whipping cream and 1/3 c. of powdered sugar and spread it on top of the two pies.

Place the clear plastic shells back on the pies and allow to chill for several hours.

Sprinkle with honey roasted peanuts just before serving.

Yeah, so good,
