This candy bar pie is the perfect dessert to use up leftover candy. It’s got a buttery pie crust, with a brown sugar cookie filling, loaded with your favorite chocolate candies!
I don’t know about you, but a couple days after Halloween, I’m candied out and I’m still usually stuck with a big bowlful of chocolate goodies. Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing – but it can’t hurt to switch it up and make some yummy desserts with the candy, instead of just eating it on it’s own. Enter in this amazing candy bar pie.
This candy bar pie is the perfect merger of Halloween and Thanksgiving desserts. And if you’re still lugging around bowls of chocolate come Thanksgiving, I’m sure no one would complain if you made this yummy pie for Thanksgiving dessert.
For this recipe I decided to use a store bought pie crust. Because you know I’m all about easy. But if you want to, of course you could make your own pie crust. I like the crust recipe I used for this homemade blueberry pie, but of course you’ll only need half of the crust recipe, since this recipe makes enough for two crusts.
How to make Candy Bar Pie?
Spread the pie crust out and place it into a greased 9inch pie plate. Press the pie crust as much as you can to the sides of the pie pan. The cookie dough doesn’t completely go up to the top of the crust, since it rises as it bakes, so you want to keep the crust from rolling or folding down on itself. If it does anyway, don’t worry too much – it’ll still taste good 🙂
Mix together your butter, brown sugar and sugar until nice and creamed. Add in your egg, and vanilla extract and stir until just combined. Add in your baking soda (powder?!), salt, and flour and mix. Fold in your candy bar pieces. If they are small the mixer will most likely chop some of them up, if they are bigger pieces, then you’ll want to chop them up before hand.
Press the cookie dough into the pie crust . Press some remaining candy pieces on top of the cookie dough to make it nice and pretty. Bake the pie until the crust is lightly browned and the top of the cookie dough is golden. Allow the pie to cool completely before cutting it up and serving it.
You can fill the cookie batter with any of your favorite chocolate candies. Some ideas are:
- Reeses Pieces
- Peanut Butter Cups
- Milky Way
- Kit Kats
- Almond Joys
- 3 Musketeers
Just look through your pantry, leftover Halloween candy, Christmas stockings, etc and pull out any chocolate candy that you have on hand, or that you love!
This candy bar pie is such a delicious sweet, buttery, chewy, cookie pie. The pie is delicious on it’s own, or top it with a scoop of ice cream, or homemade whipped cream!
