Dark Chocolate, Banana, Peanut Butter Cream Pie

A couple of years ago, I was looking for a simple, quick,
 go-to recipe that I could take to a get together.

I found a basic peanut butter pie recipe and made it my own.
I warn you, it is delish and far from healthy.
This is why it only gets made once a year. ;)

You Need:
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
 (Cant use natural for this)
1/2 Cup Powder Sugar
6 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened 
(No Fat Free, it messes with the texture)
4 oz. Cool Whip, Thawed
1/2 oz. Dark Chocolate
2 Tb Milk
Pie Crust of choice.
(We have made this with every pie crust out there and the Nilla is by far our favorite.)

Fist you need to shave your chocolate.
I use my handy dandy microplane.

Put this in the freezer and keep it there until you are ready for it.
I like it frozen so that it doesn't melt when you fold it into the pie filling.

In a large bowl, combine the milk, cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar.

Fold in the cool whip and then the chocolate shavings.
(You can set some shavings aside to top the pie off if you would like.

Layer sliced bananas in the bottom of your pie crust. I keep mine sliced really thin and I use the whole banana.
(I couldn't do this today because we have a friend over with a banana allergy)

Then, spoon your filling over the bananas and smooth out.
 Now you can top off with more chocolate shavings to make it look pretty. ;)

Pop in the fridge for at lease 2 hours. Over night is best.
