Snickers Pie

I was totally called out for slacking on my blogging. Truth is I have been slacking on my baking too.  Good news though, I have a mission these next few weeks to get the perfect sugar cookie recipe down. I have tried a couple and I just haven’t been pleased. I need a good sugar cookie for our Hanukkah cookies this year. I also think I want to try to decorate cookies – Bake at 350 has some amazing stuff and I want to be like her. It will probably take me a while to figure it out before it makes the blog – or I can let you see all my mistakes and learn along with me. We will see what my pride can take when I try it. 😀 So be on the look out for sugar cookies, also this weekend my favorite roommates are coming over! We are having a girls night and making homemade pizzas. Jillian said I have to blog about it – and since she is the reason for this update, I guess I better listen to her! Sugar cookies and pizza! YUM.

Speaking of YUM – SNICKERS Pie.

Snickers is one of my favorite candy bars of all time. Which is funny to me because when I was little my mom and I had a knock down, drag out fight in Walmart because I wouldn’t try one. ( I said I didn’t like them, when I never tried them, and she knew if I tried it I would like them – I tried them – and said I still didn’t like them, even if I did)

This was for our monthly family dinner which Matt and I hosted. It was super easy – I cheated and made it even easier and bought oreo crusts. I found this from Make Life Delicious

Ingredients:

8 oz cream cheese – softened

1/2 c. creamy or chunky peanut butter ( I used creamy)

1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

4 regular size snickers bars, chopped ( reserve some to top pie – I forgot this and just chopped another one)

1 tub cool whip thawed

Chocolate crumb crust

Directions:

* In large mixing bowl beat cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar until creamy

This is not at the creamy stage but my creamy pic was blurry and i didn't notice

* Pour into crusts (this makes 2 pies) and top with snickers (the recipe suggest Carmel sauce drizzled on top but I didn’t have that)

* refrigerate overnight

If you make your own crust you can make 1 larger pie in a spring form pan. Making 2 means you can freeze one!!

This was super easy to make and very good! It was really rich and yummy. I would definitely make this again because it was so easy and would be an easy thing to make if you had to take something to a party or pot luck.

Here you go Jill – this outta last a couple days! 😀

    Saying you don’t like something when you haven’t even tried it? I thought you were talking about grape jelly!
