Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup vanilla wafer cookies (about 30 cookies)
  • 1 1/2 Cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 Cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Two 8-ounce containers frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 Cups sliced banana
  • 1/2 Cup chocolate syrup

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Pulse the cookies in a food processor until finely ground. Add 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and the butter; pulse 2-3 times or just until combined. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish that has been greased with cooking spray. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Put the remaining 1 cup of the brown sugar, cream cheese, peanut butter, and vanilla in a the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.

Lay the banana slices on the prepared crust and drizzle with ¼ cup chocolate syrup. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the bananas and drizzle with the remaining chocolate syrup. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until frozen through, about 5 hours. Let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
