B-B-B-Banoffee Pie!

Banoffee Pie.  Have you ever heard of it?  Here is what Wiki has to say about it:
Banoffee pie (also spelled banoffi, orbanoffy) is an English pastry-based dessert made from    bananascream,toffee from boiled condensed milk (or dulce de leche), either on a pastry base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter. Some versions of the recipe also include chocolate and/or coffee.

My opinion is, any pie that contains a softened toffee, banana's, chocolate cookies/crumbs and pastry cream, HAS to be amazing.  I took the easy route with this version and honestly, it is the best version I have made to date.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.  It is SO easy and so good.

Here is what you will need:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 bananas
1 cup cool whip
1 cup vanilla pudding
1 chocolate cookie crumb pie crust *buy it friends*

Put your can of sweetened condensed milk into a pot of simmering water.  Simmer it for 2 hours. Do NOT let the water run dry or you risk your can exploding.  You don't need to get all crazy with it, just let it simmer or low boil  When the 2 hours is up, remove the can from the water and let cool completely before opening.  When you open it, it will be soft gooey caramel goodness.  

While that is simmering do the following.  Combine 1 cup of vanilla pudding and 1 cup of cool whip together and refrigerate.  Slice 2 bananas into the bottom of your pie crust.  When condensed milk is done, pour over bananas and then top with whipped cream/vanilla pudding mixture.  Freeze pie for at least 2 hours before serving.  It is best for it to freeze longer

With bananas, follow with caramel and then pudding mixture!

This pie is so good.  Let me tell you a secret.  If you don't care how it looks, refrigerate it for a couple of hours and eat it that way too.  It is not pretty but, oh, em, gee.  It is delicious.  Either way you are going to love it.  I promise!!   

Wow, this blog is sort of a mess eh?  Well, your going to work with it guys, it is how my mind is thinking today!  Make BANOFFEE PIE!!!
