Prep time: 20 mins
Total time: 20 mins
  • 1 - 9" pie crust, baked
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1¼ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5-6 bananas
  • chocolate sauce
  • caramel sauce
  1. For the pie:
  2. Brush the melted chocolate over the pie crust. Refrigerate to set.
  3. Place the whipping cream, mascarpone, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl. Beat on low speed until the ingredients are blended then increase to medium high speed. Beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  4. Slice the bananas.
  5. Place a row of bananas over the crust. Top with half of the whipped cream. Drizzle chocolate and caramel sauce over the whipped cream. Place the remaining bananas over the whipped cream and top with the remaining whipped cream. Drizzle more chocolate and caramel sauce over the top. Keep refrigerated.
  6. Betsy's tidbit:
  7. The type of pie crust is a personal preference. A pastry crust, graham cracker crust or chocolate wafer crust would, all, work beautifully.
