Quick and easy banana truffle pie is a perfect year-round dessert that can be whipped up in a breeze. 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. Chocolate Banana 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. Chocolate Truffle Filling The truffle filling is a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate, butter, and cream cheese. The mixture is loosened with a splash of orange liqueur. I recommend Grand Marnier or Cointreau. If you prefer to omit alcohol, you may use orange juice or milk. Mix the truffle ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pot over low heat. For best results, melt over a bain-marie for even, gentle heating. Pour the luscious chocolate filling to the baked pie shell. Top with sliced bananas and keep chilled in the fridge until the chocolate has firmed up. Baking BasicsHow to Make Pie DoughLearn how to make flaky pie dough using two different techniques.
