chocolate banana nut pie

Desciption

chocolate lovers unite! this is one especially for you! it tastes like an elegant mousse pie although technically it isn’t. this pie uses no pudding mixes so is really a good example of ‘getting back to basics’. i dreamed about this pie…and couldn’t believe how good it turned out…the very first time! you can of course substitute pecans for the walnuts if you wish but i used walnuts because it was required for the rsc contest. this pie makes a gorgeous presentation and is worth the little extra work to make. although your family will adore it…it would be wonderful for guests. they will know that this was a real homemade pie! prep time does not include the two chill times. the cooking time includes the baking of the crust and the cooking of the chocolate mix.
