  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix wafer crumbs and butter until blended; press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate.
  3. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, make chocolate curls from 1/2 ounce chocolate. Refrigerate.
  6. Chocolate Curls: Warm BAKER'S Chocolate slightly by heating it, unwrapped, in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long, delicate curls. Make short curls using the same technique on the narrow sides of the square. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.
  7. Microwave remaining 1 1/2 oz. chocolate and peanut butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 minute; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
  8. Place bananas in crust; drizzle with melted chocolate.
  9. Beat pudding mixes and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 minutes.
  10. Stir in 1 cup COOL WHIP.
  11. Spread over bananas; top with remaining COOL WHIP.
  12. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
  13. Top with chocolate curls and nuts just before serving.
