At a church fund-raiser, I purchased a pie-a-month package furnished by a local family. From among all the varieties they made, this one was the best, with its chocolate crust, creamy caramel filling and fluffy topping.
This can be assembled beforehand without the bananas—put them on top right before serving. I also use different types of ice cream from time to time; it's like a banana split in a pie. —Mary Ann Dell, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
This started out as just a plain chocolate pie that I "dressed up" for company. Now when I serve it, guests often tell me, "Your pie looks too good to eat - but I won't let that stop me!"

Slices of this rich and creamy treat from our Test Kitchen are sure to disappear fast when friends and family try it. Assembled in a convenient graham cracker crust, the fluffy filling has a pleasant orange taste.
"Coming from the South, we fell in love with this chocolate pie that’s filled with pecans," Deboraha Woolard shares from Las Vegas, Nevada. "It could take all day to put together, but my version takes just 15 minutes of preparation before it’s stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve."
This quick pie is such an ego booster. My family compliments me the entire time they’re eating it. A big hit at work potlucks, too, it’s good to the last crumb. I promise you it’ll ‘hop’ right off the plate! —Kim Murphy, Albia, Iowa
This dessert is special enough to make hamburgers and fries a meal to remember! It's so tall and pretty and just like eating a frozen banana split. Make it ahead to save time. —Joy Collins, Birmingham, Alabama
