Chocolate Covered Banana Pie


I won a pie baking contest at work with this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to omit the pecans and since I made in in a 9 in pie pan, I cut the chocolate mixture in half. Everyone loved it!

This was awesome. I normally substitute milk chocolate for semi-sweet, and decided not to for this. It was still delicious, even with my sweet tooth. I didn’t use the marshmallows in the filling, and I made some whipped topping to finish it. This is a really great dessert. I may try it with the milk chocolate next time, but I like really sweet stuff. This is rather rich, but the whipped topping toned it down a bit, and I don’t mind if it’s rich anyway. Overall delicious!



I have never reviewed any recipes before but I had to rate this recipe. It was wonderful. Served it for a party and everyone raved about it. I did omit the nuts and make the crust a bit thicker with the nilla wafers. What a hit. This is a must try!


This was great! It was easy and required simple ingredients. And leftovers tasted good, if not better, the next day. I’m not crazy about marshmallows (and I stilled loved this recipe), next time I will not put them in the pudding mixture. Also, in an effort to conserve, I used the kids frozen chocolate Easter bunnies instead of the choco. chips! Tased great!
