Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Pie

This month's edition of Southern Living magazine had several 'icebox' pie recipes.

After looking through all of them, I decided to try out the Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Pie recipe. (The Strawberry-Pretzel one looked really good too, so be on the lookout for that one in the future!)

It has a cinnamon graham cracker/honey roasted peanut crust. The crust is the only part of this pie that you have to bake. If you used a pre-made graham cracker crust, you wouldn't even have to turn on the oven -- perfect for summer!

Then a layer of chocolate ganache (melted dark chocolate + whipping cream).

The chocolate ganache is topped with sliced bananas.

The 'peanut butter' part of the pie is similar in texture to a mousse and goes on top of the sliced bananas.  Peanut butter, cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla, and brown sugar make up the mousse part.

I let this chill overnight before we sliced into it.

Totally worth the overnight wait! For photo purposes, I topped this one with more whipped cream, chopped pecans, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. We've also tried it without the extra toppings, and it is just as good!
