      Nutella Banana Cream Pie

      Here’s a banana cream pie with a little Italian flair. The chocolate and hazelnut
      go well with the banana, and the rolled chocolate pie crust makes it extra-special.
      If you don’t have time to melt and pipe the chocolate stars, just sprinkle the top
      of the pie with grated chocolate or cocoa powder instead.
