PieDay Friday-Snickers Icebox Pie

This recipe took a long road before making it's way onto my blog. My cousin Krista emailed me the recipe. She got the recipe from her friend and hairdresser, Rachel. I don't eat nuts so I had my sister, Jennifer make the pie. She emailed me pictures of it and her tips so I could finally post them and the recipe here. Whew!
It's like the food version of a game of telephone!



Tips:
  • For extra crunch add 1/4 cup crushed peanuts on top of pie.
  • Try reducing the Cool Whip by half and add 4oz softened cream cheese for a faux Snickers Cheesecake Pie.
  • Instead of topping with additional hot fudge, try using Magic Shell. It hardens when poured over ice cream or other frozen dishes and adds an interesting contrast of textures.
  • The smaller you chop up the candy bars, the quicker they will melt. That translates into less time you have to stand over the stovetop!



Snickers Pie
4 King sized Snickers bars (or 6 regular sized)
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1 1/2 tablespoons half and half
1 container Cool Whip, thawed
3 Tablespoons Hot Fudge, warmed
1 deep-dish 9 inch graham cracker pie crust
Whipped cream and additional Hot Fudge, for garnish


Chop up Snickers bars into very small pieces. In the top of a double boiler, melt together chopped Snickers, peanut butter and half and half, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Fold in whipped topping. Spread hot fudge on the bottom of crust and pour mixture into crust and freeze for 4-6 hours before serving. When ready to serve, defrost slightly and top with whipped cream and drizzle with hot fudge. Store in refrigerator.

Hi -- stopping by and following from Friday Follow!

Have to admit that your blog name caught my eye as my daughter named our 8-year-old cat Snickers after her favorite candy bar.

All your pies look delicious, but this one is pretty sinful! Yum!

Anonymous said...

Wow! That looks tasty. You have such a great family to share and create these recipes with.

That sister and brother-in-law of yours sound cool!
