Hunka Munka Burning Love

What do you get when you cross a Banana Cream Pie with a Peanut Putter Cream Pie? You get a Hunka Munka Burning Love Pie!
Nothing is better than the combination of chocolate, peanut butter and bananas.  There may be better combo's out there, but at the moment I can't think of any. My brain is too focused on The Hunka Munka right now!
The inspiration for this cream pie is a result of taking someone else's recipes and playing with ingredients and making it my own.  The Peanut Butter Cream Pie from In Jennies Kitchen,  and Bobby's,  Hunka Munka Blondies gave me the idea to combine the ingredients and make a cream pie! My husbands favorite is Banana Cream Pie, and he loved the Peanut Butter Cream Pie so what could be better than making it all into one. Layers of delicious indulgence!
Here's what I came up with. This is a no bake pie. Relatively easy to do. Get ready to blow your friends away! They are going to love this!

Hunka Munka Burning Love Pie

4 Tablespoons Butter
8 ozs chocolate cookies
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1 cup peanuts, chopped
3 sliced Bananas
8 ozs cream cheese at room temperature
1 cup creamy smooth peanut butter
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 package instant banana pudding

In a food processor pulse chocolate cookies until they become a crumb.
Melt the butter and chocolate chips together, (I used the microwave )
With a fork mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter and chocolate.

Press the crumb mixture into the bottom, and up the sides a little bit of a 9 inch spring form pan.

Add the chocolate syrup, and smooth it out with a spatula.

Sprinkle with the chopped nuts

Slice two of the bananas and layer on top of peanuts. Reserve one of the bananas to  decorate the top of the pie.
With a mixer beat the cream cheese and the peanut butter together until light and fluffy. Add the sweetened condensed milk and the vanilla.  Add this layer on top of the sliced banana layer.
In a deep bowl beat the heavy cream and the milk together, add the package of instant banana pudding to the liquid and beat to a whipped cream texture. It will happen very fast.
Scoop the pudding/ cream  mixture on top of the peanut butter cream.
Decorate with chocolate chips, and more chopped peanuts. Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight!

And before serving, add more sliced banana! Serve and indulge!

Buon Appetito
