When I saw this recipe online, I thought, How can anyone pass up a pie made with Snickers? Well, certainly not me. This actually is very similar to a Peanut Butter Pie, only you add a little extra something–and, of course, that something is Snickers!
Cut up 3 Snickers bars. This recipe actually called for a pretzel crust, but I was running low on time and bought a pre-made graham cracker crust.
Layer the Snickers bars along the bottom of the crust. (There were a little leftover, since I didn’t want to layer the pie too much, so I ate some. Nothing went to waste!)
Make the filling and pour into the pie pan. Bake and then cool and chill in the fridge. Cover it with melted chocolate and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and you’re ready to serve!
Southern Living, on-line recipe
3 (2.07) oz. Snickers bars
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 1/2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/4 cup coarsely chopped, lightly salted peanuts
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut candy bars into 1/4-inch pieces; arrange over bottom of crust.
Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add sour cream and peanut butter, beating at low speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears after each addition. Spoon cream cheese mixture over candy on crust.
Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until set. Remove to a wire rack, and let cool 1 hour or until completely cool. Cover and chill 2 hours.
Microwave chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl set at HIGH for 30 seconds or until melted and smooth, stirring at 15-second intervals. (I just used a double boiler. I am always worried about overheating my chocolate!) Drizzle over top of cooled pie, and sprinkle evenly with peanuts.
