Dark Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

This is Debbie Edwards. The best mother-in-law in the world.

At my bridal shower a couple of years ago, I had the honor of receiving a recipe from her. It was a recipe for this dessert…my soon-to-be husband’s favorite. Check it out! I modified the recipe to make it a little bit better for you, too. You’re in for a treat!

Dark Chocolate Banana Cream Pie


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup special dark cocoa powder
  • 1 can fat free evaporated milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 packages of Dream Whip (which calls for 1 cup of skim milk) or whipping cream


  1. Combine the sugar, flour, cocoa and evaporated milk in a saucepan and heat  through.
  2. Once heated, add the slightly beaten egg yolks. (Tip: So that the yolks don’t scramble, you must temper them. To do this, take a small amount of the hot chocolate mixture and stir it quickly into the yolks. Then, proceed to add the egg yolks in the sauce pan, stirring constantly.)
  3. When the mixture starts to thicken, add the butter and vanilla.
  4. Once combined, pour into the graham cracker crust.
  5. Allow it to cool in the refrigerator.
  6. Once cool, mix the whipping cream as instructed on the box.
  7. Slice the bananas and arrange them on the chocolate.
  8. Then, spread the whipped goodness on the top of the bananas.
  9. Slice and enjoy!

  1. Hey there,
    I tried to make your pie last night and the flavor was awesome but I must have not let it cook long enough on the stove because it never really set in the fridge. It was more of a pudding.
    How long do you stir on the stove/to what consistency before putting in the fridge?

    1. When you’re stirring it on the stove you’ll want it to get fairly thick. It ends up being a ‘having an eye for it’ kind of a thing. It’s the same consistency you want to get when you use pudding boxed mix. Keep stirring until it’s pretty much a pudding-like consistency on the stove. Then, when you take it off and chill it, it’ll set to be able to slice into a pie slices. I hope that helps, but please let me know if I can answer any other questions or go into more detail! 🙂
