Tobins' Tastes: Candy Bar Pie

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Candy Bar Pie


 I have been wanting to make this for forever. Pretty much ever since I made Lightened Up Key Lime Pie for the first time I knew I wanted to try a version of it with chocolate jello instead of lime. When we wanted a sweet treat the other night, this was the perfect thing to throw together especially since we had everything on hand to make it except the pie crust.

The cold, creamy filling was the perfect contrast to the rich and crunchy pieces of candy and it was a fantastic treat for the hot summer days we have been having here in South Florida.


This was so easy to make and so customizable to use whatever types of candy you have on hand. I used reeses cups, rolos and some pretzel M&M's because we had them in the baking pantry but I have already been thinking of all the fun combos of treats I can use next time. You could also change up the base flavor depending on what kind of pudding mix you have/like.


I was worried it would be too sweet or too intense with all that chocolate so I used sugar free Cool Whip and sugar free Jello Pudding Mix but I bet it would be amazing with the regular kinds too.

It did get a little hard to cut in the freezer so if you like a creamier pie you may want to store it in the fridge instead. I would love to hear what kind of candy combos you would use so I have inspiration for next time!


Candy Bar Pie
  •  1 pie crust
  • 1 box of Jello Pudding Mix (I used sugar free)
  • Amount of milk required on the back of the pudding mix
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip (I used sugar free)
  • Chopped up candy pieces (I chopped up 7 mini reese cups, 7 rolos, and used about 3/4 cup of pretzel M&M's)
1.) Combine milk and pudding mix as directed on package. 
2.) Fold in Cool Whip to pudding mixture. I keep mine in the freezer so make sure it is completely thawed before mixing. 

3.) Stir candy pieces into filling. The color on my M&M's ran a little bit but it still tasted delicious. 


4.) Pour filling into pie crust and spread evenly. I topped mine with a few extra pieces of candy. 


5.) Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. Store in the fridge or freezer depending on the consistency you like your pie : )

Enjoy!
