Chunky Monkey Pie

I made this for Brad's birthday- so yummy! Cookie crust, bananas, chocolate/peanut butter filling, light topping, and copious honey roasted peanuts to top it all off! This makes TWO pies.

1 (3.4 oz) box instant chocolate pudding
1 cup cold water
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 pint heavy whipping cream, divided
2 (6 oz) cookie crusts (I used Oreo)
2 large or 4 small bananas
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Plenty of honey roasted peanuts!

In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, cold water, sweetened condensed milk, and peanut butter. Mix well and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes. In another bowl, whip 1 cup of cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the pudding mixture and then return the mixture to the refrigerator. Slice the bananas and layer them on the bottom of the crusts. Divide the pudding mixture between the two pie crusts. In a medium bowl, whip the remaining whipping cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form and then spread it on top of the two pies. Refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with peanuts just before serving.
