Ingredients For the Crust

  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/3 cup of either creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 - 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs

Graham Cracker Crust

  • If you are using graham crackers rather than the prepackaged crumbs you will need twelve whole crackers. These can be either ground up in a food processor or put into a plastic bag and rolled with a rolling pin.
  • You may wish to use a store bought graham cracker crust and omit the peanut butter flavor.
  • To make a plain graham cracker crust use butter in place of the peanut butter.

moonlake, Thanks :)

Christy, They make me smile too :)

Sue, You could get by with one box but the more chocolate the better .... I'd use two :)

Hi Susan,

Looks yummy but I would prefer just chocolate. Does that mean I would use two boxes of instant chocolate pudding?

Voted up and awesome

Take care :)

The combination sounds wonderful. Love banana and chocolate together. And I love the idea of using peanut butter instead of butter or margarine for the crust. Sounds good!

Susan, I was really getting quite bored of serving custard as dessert. Your recipe put fresh ideas in my head..Though I don't particularly like banana flavor in my dessert, I think I can try the chocolate chip idea.. voted up and sharing.

I just love pudding... mmmm... lots of it too. It is not to bad calorie wise either, as long as you can do it in moderation. This looks absolutley delicious. I must say though, I kept thinking how awesome would this have been if you would have used an oreo crust! MMMMM delicious!

I normally love chocolate pudding the best, but a banana pudding pie with the sliced bananas and tons of whipped cream are right up there too. Great suggestions and a quick desert. Pinning!
