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