Snickers Pie

Posted by Picasa
I made this pie for friends a few weeks ago and then for family last week and I've had a lot of requests for the recipe. It's SO good and SO easy to make. You can thank my friend Paula Deen for the recipe.
1 graham cracker pie crust
5 king sized Snickers bars
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 tablespoons half and half
4 cups cool whip
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In the top of a double boiler, melt together four candy bars, peanut butter, and half-and-half, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Fold in whipped topping, pour into crust, and freeze for 4 to 6 hours before serving. (For a richer pie, substitute 2 cups heavy cream, whipped with 1/2 cup sugar until stiff peaks form, in place of prepared whipped topping.)
When ready to serve, top with additional whipped topping and drizzle wth chocolate syrup. Add small chunks of a snickers bar on top as well. Store in refrigerator.

Great! Something else for me to make and eat the entire thing in one night! Mario and Lane have both said it is ridiculous trying to watch what they eat when Jamie and I are always making sweets (We come by that honest!) Although Mario sure can't complain about that fact, if I ever get around to going to the grocery store this MONTH, I will have to get the ingredients and try this recipe--looks yummy!

mmm. That looks really good! Paula Dean is good. She was recently in my neck of the woods! Didn't get to go see her, but the show is great!
