Peanut Butter-Banana Icebox Pie is the dessert equivalent of a swimming hole—so refreshing you can't help but dive in.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together first 3 ingredients; firmly press on bottom, up sides, and onto lip of a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven to a wire rack, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).

Step 2

Microwave chocolate and 1/2 cup whipping cream in a small microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring at 30-second intervals. Whisk until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. (Do not overheat.) Spoon chocolate mixture into prepared crust.

Step 3

Beat cream cheese, next 2 ingredients, and 1/4 cup whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until mixture is light and fluffy.

Step 4

Beat vanilla and remaining 1 1/4 cups whipping cream at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold one-third whipped cream mixture into peanut butter mixture to loosen; fold in remaining whipped cream mixture.

Step 5

Arrange banana slices over chocolate mixture in crust. Spread peanut butter mixture over bananas. Cover and chill 8 hours. Serve pie with desired toppings.

Made for a small dinner party and received rave reviews. Everyone enjoyed it and pie was fairly easy to make. Great summer dessert.

Everyone who tried this raved and raved about it. They could not believe how good it was. Also received an immediate request to make it again SOON!

This pie is outrageous!!! I took it to work for an afternoon treat and had two marriage proposals! LOL I used bitter sweet dark chocolate and the men loved the combo of the peanut butter, banana, and chocolate. I have made this pie 3 times in 3 days.

This pie turned out exactly like it looked in the picture! A huge hit with the men in my family. The chocolate layer and the honey roasted peanuts make this pie a sweet surprise! Absolutely delicious!

I guess my opinion differs from the others...I thought this pie was good, not great. I had high expectations from the other reviews, but felt that this was one case where the picture looked better than the pie tasted. It's a fine pie, and certainly hasn't gone to waste, but I don't think I'll make it again. When I taste the graham cracker crust, I can't help wishing I was eating a key lime, lemon icebox, or even cheesecake. Good pie, just not great, in my opinion.
