Festive Coconut Banana Custard Holly Berry Pie

I’ve been having such fun the past few months playing with pies and crusts that I just can’t seem to stop myself. Not that I actually want to, because they’ve seemed to have struck a chord with people, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have several more ideas in mind for decorated pies and crusts, so I hope you’ll stay tuned. But first up is this one for Festive Coconut Banana Custard Pie with a Holly Berry Crust.

Chocolate Malted Peppermint Sweet Rolls with Chocolate Malt Icing #Choctoberfest

If you’ve been following along then you know that the past several recipes I’ve posted have been in celebration of #Choctoberfest 2016. Since this will be my last post for this event (don’t worry, I’ll still be posting chocolate recipes from time to time), I’ve decided to go out with a bang! Today I bringing you my recipe for Chocolate Malted Peppermint Sweet Rolls with Chocolate Malt Icing. And, yes. They’re everything you’d hope they’d be!

Cocoa Coconut Banana Bread

If you’d like to up the chocolate ante of this bread (nice, but certainly not necessary), feel free to add some semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter before baking. And, as I’m always prone to do (but didn’t do this time), tossing in some chopped toasted nuts is never a bad thing in my book. But, if you’re giving it as a gift, sometimes the simpler the better.
