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.

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. Peanut Butter-Banana Pie 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. Peanut Butter- Banana Pie 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!

  1. I will try this Elvis Peanut Butter Pie minus the banana, since I do not like bananas πŸ™‚
    I will also try the chocolate peanut butter layer bars too, they look so delicious……

  2. Wow! Does not seem overly sweet. Sounds delicious. Will try for sure. Love the idea for the crust. We will skip the bananas because my husband doesn’t care for slices of bananas in his pie. THANK YOU!

  3. Wow, this pie has everything I love! Peanut butter, banana and chocolate are the ultimate combo especially when you top that all with whipped cream! The nutter butter crust is such a great idea too – love this no-bake dessert especially for summer:)
