When I serve this dessert to company, they often think it has ice cream in it. It does have a smooth texture like an ice cream pie. I've been making this recipe for years - it's a refreshing end to a meal anytime!
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!"
