Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes
Servings 10


  • 1 ready made chocolate cookie crust
  • 1-3.4 ounce box banana instant pudding
  • 1 ¼ cups milk {I used 1%}
  • 1-8 ounce tub whipped topping
  • ½ cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 bananas {sliced}


  1. Remove the plastic insert from the ready made crust and place the crust {including the foil liner} into a pie plate for serving.

Banana Cream Pudding

  1. Combine instant banana pudding mix with milk and whisk until thick. Add 1 cup of the whipped topping to the pudding mixture and fold it in until evenly distributed.

Pie Assembly

  1. Add half of the banana pudding mixture to the bottom of the chocolate cookie crust in an even layer. Top with sliced bananas in a single layer that covers the pudding. Top the bananas with 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips, followed by the rest of the banana pudding spread out into an even layer. NOTE: If you are making ahead or freezing this pie then stop here until ready to serve.

  2. Add the remaining whipped topping to a piping {or zipper} bag fitted with a large star tip and cover the top of the pie with whipped topping. NOTE: If you don't have a piping bag or star tip then just spread it out into an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining mini chocolate chips over the whipped topping in an even layer.

  3. Serve or refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

  • To freeze the pie, stop before adding the toppings and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap.  Freeze for up 3 months.  Defrost in the refrigerator.
