This recipe is a labor of love and it’s well worth the time and effort. I got most of the ingredients from Cost Plus World Market in their baking product section minus the Bahlsen biscuits that I grabbed in the cookie and cake aisle.Make this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetaway You’re going to want to start with preparing your pudding. Take your pudding packets and place them in a saucepan. Add your sugar and milk and heat it on medium heat. Before it started thickening, I added one pureed banana for flavor. You can whisk the pudding by hand but it may end up clumpy while it cools so I recommend using a handheld mixer.Once your pudding has thickened, transfer it to a cool bowl and cover the top with some cling film. Place it directly on the pudding to avoid a skin forming. Let it set in the fridge for 2 hours.Next is your crust (and the best part), take a package of Balshen Liebetz Butter Cookies and pulse them to a crumb. Melt your butter and add your cookie crumbs along with the sugar and mix. Place it in a pie tin and bake for 5-7 minutes until golden.Make this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawaySet it aside and allow it to cool. Now let’s make the ganache. Heat up your cream in a small saucepan and pour it over your Guittard Chocolate Chips. Cover it for 5 minutes and then stir until it’s all combined. If your chocolate starts to cool before it’s incorporated into the cream, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time.Pour 1/8-1/4 cup of chocolate ganache over your cookie crust. You want to then swirl the pie pan so that the ganache covers the sides of the crust. You want just a light coating of the ganache. Refrigerate for 15 minutes so it can solidify.Remove the crust from the fridge and thinly slice two bananas. You’ll want to place those slices directly onto the ganache. Next, add the pudding to the top of the banana slices. Place some cling film over the pudding and chill until you’re ready to serve.

Once you’re ready to serve your delicious Banana Cream Pie, add freshly whipped cream to the top. Make it even more decadent and add some banana chips for a little added texture.

Yum! You’ve got a delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe that your family will rave about for years.

  • Prep Time: 4h
  • Cook Time: 30m
  • Total Time: 4h 30m
  • Serves: 8
  • Yield: 9" pie

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas, sliced

Whipped Cream

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Ganache

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips

Banana Pudding

  • 1 banana, pureed
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages vanilla pudding
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

Crust

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package Bahlsen Butter Biscuits
  • 1/4 cup banana chips, optional

Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Pulse your Bahlsen Butter Biscuits to crumbs. Mix with your sugar and melted butter. Press into a 9" pie pan and bake for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Banana Pudding

  1. Prepare your packaged pudding according to package directions. Before the mixture comes to a boil, add in your pureed banana. Stir well and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Ganache

  1. Heat your cream on medium heat until hot, pour over your chocolate chips and cover for 5 minutes. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes.

Assembly

  1. Once your biscuit crust is cool, pour about a 1/4 cup of ganache over the top. Swirl your crust so that the ganache covers the side of the crust. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. After your ganache has set, place the sliced bananas over the ganache. Add the pudding on top of the bananas and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
  3. Mix your sugar and heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe the whipped cream on top of the pudding and place the banana chips for extra decoration. Serve along side the leftover ganache. This will stay well in your fridge for a day but it's best to prepare it the day of because the bananas may turn.

It’ll make the mixture not as hot to the touch and you’ll have no marshmallows stuck to your hands afterwards. peeps recipesAllow the mixture to cool and cut out as many bunnies as you can. I got 8 out of each 1/4 sheet pan. Now take your black writing gel and place three dots to represent the eyes and the nose of the bunnies.

Making Rice Krispies Treats for the Holidays

November 29, 2016

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TidingsAndTreats #CollectiveBiashow-to-makeFor us, making holiday Rice Krispies treats has now become a tradition. We usually do the traditional shapes of the gingerbread man and the pine tree, but we decided to add-on Emoji’s this year and Leila could not have been more excited. I have a certain recipe ratio that I follow that makes it super easy for me to remember and I don’t need to measure a thing.

Ingredients

  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal or
  • Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies cereal
  • 10 oz bag of marshmallows
  • stick of butter
  • food coloring (if desired)
  • cookie cutters
  • decorating items

how-to-make-rice-krispie-treatsI begin by melting the entire bag of marshmallows with the stick of butter. I like the have them melt at the same speed so I add the together at the same time. I stir occasionally until the marshmallow starts to liquefy and then I stir it constantly. Now is when you’ll want to add your food coloring.emoji-foodIn a separate bowl, add your box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal or your Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies cereal. Pour the marshmallow mixture over and mix well. I like to grease my bowl and grease my rubber spatula so I can get all the goodness.
emoji-party-foodchristmas-rice-krispies chocolate-rice-krispiesNext, spread your mixtures into greased jelly roll pans and allow it to cool and solidify. This process took me about 10 minutes from the time I poured to the time we cut. In the Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies cereal, I added brown food coloring and they seemed to be a lot more buttery in texture and flavor. This kind is my new favorite.emoji-party-ideasWe then cut out circles, trees and gingerbread men out of our Rice Krispies mix and began to decorate. I used some colored sprinkles for the lights on the pine trees, I used red and black gel for the Emoji and gingerbread men ones. I found all the ingredients I needed for decorating in the bakery aisle at Target.emoji-party-food-ideasWe just copied the Emoji faces from off my phone and it was as easy as drawing. It’s very foolproof and the kids will enjoy a trendy element to your Holiday Rice Krispies Treats.holiday-rice-krispie-treatsRight now Target has an offer that for every two boxes of Rice Krispies you buy, you get a FREE 10 oz. bag of Jet Puffed marshmallows. It’s perfect for this recipe! christmas-rice-krispie-treatsI want to see your creations! We have loved having this as a holiday tradition and I’d love to see you start this one. Share it with me on social media and use the hashtag #Treats4Toys. If you do that then for every picture shown with that hashtag, Rice Krispies will donate a toy to a child in need.
