The Elvis Pie!

 
 
I have found that anything with Elvis's name on it in the food world is usually pretty dang good!  Elvis was known to be a lover of southern comfort food!   He had a late night favorite he loved, fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.   This is a peanut butter and banana icebox pie, so what better name than "The Elvis Pie"!   Here is what you will need for this pie:
 
1  large prepared graham cracker pie crust (the extra large one with 2 extra servings)
4 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
2 cups heavy whipping cream divided
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 large bananas, sliced thin
 
Garnishes
additional sweetened whipped cream
additional melted chocolate or chocolate syrup
 
Place the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the whipping cream in a glass bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Stir until smooth.  If not melted, microwave for another minute.  This depends on the wattage of your microwave.  One minute does it in mine. 
 
Pour melted chocolate into the pie crust.
 
Place the cream cheese, peanut butter, brown sugar,  confectioners sugar and 1/4 cup of the cream in a mixing bowl.  Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. 
 
In another bowl, beat the rest of the cream and the vanilla until stiff peaks form.  Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture and lightly stir to combine.
 
Arrange the banana slices over the chocolate layer in the pie crust.  Evenly spread the whipped peanut butter mixture over the bananas.  Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 5-6 hours or even overnight!   
 
Drizzle each piece with additional melted chocolate or chocolate syrup!
 
Add a dollop of whipped cream for an extra wow!
