This banana truffle pie is a perfect year-round dessert that can be whipped up in a breeze.

Banana Truffle Pie

Bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

I seriously can’t say/think/write the word banana without singing that one part in Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl. But really, this caramelized banana truffle pie is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

This dessert is variation on this strawberry truffle pie and I’m sharing the recipe over at BHG’s Delish Dish blog.

Banana Truffle Pie

With bananas available all the time, this banana truffle pie is a perfect year-round dessert that can be whipped up in a breeze. The truffle filling is sweet, creamy, and a bit tangy. The combination of chocolate and cream cheese is killer. Mixed with the buttery, flakey crust and caramelized bananas, it’s a definite winner.

While it’s perfectly delectable as is, you should go big and serve this with a scoop of ice cream, perhaps a drizzle of salted caramel, and a large mug of coffee.

Every now and then, while reading food blogs, I come across a photo that stops my scrolling finger as my eyes widen and I actually say, “Wow!” out loud. This is that kind of post with that kind of photos about that kind of recipe. Wow, Maryanne!
