A flaky, tender pie crust filled with a blondie cookie and loaded with candy bars! This is a fun, and super sweet, way to make a surprise for your kids with their Halloween candy.
I’m so sorry. Candy Bar Pie. It just sounds ridiculous and sugar loaded! But……. it’s yummy and a perfect yearly treat to make with your kids’ leftover Halloween candy. That is if they have any.
Do you dread Halloween like I do? I seriously hate. it! So much whining about not being able to eat their candy 24/7, sneaking candy, and stuffing themselves with so much candy that they won’t eat any real food for dinner. Then they wonder why their tummy hurts. So now, I’m up several times a night because they have a tummy ache from all the candy they snuck. Go figure 🙂
I remember last year my son was so angry, like really super angry (and he’s pretty chill and mild) because I would not let him sleep with his candy. He said that he gets hungry in the middle of the night and that the candy would be a good snack to help him be full…….ummm, ok?!? So that was the big fight last year. I’m sure this year will be something like that again.
I’ll stop complaining now. When my kids are happy, I am happy. So if that means I have to endure the “candy nightmares” for a few weeks, then I’ll do it. As long as they give me all their Almond Joys & Laffy Taffy —-> LOVE that stuff. I will say that I schedule their 6 month dental check-up to happen before Halloween every year. That way I have 6 months to try and undo the damage until the next one, hehehe 🙂
This candy bar pie reminds me of cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon rolls are sweet, decadent, loaded with sugary goodness and something that I only make twice a year for specific occasions. Same with this pie, it would be a fun yearly tradition to make this candy bar pie with some Halloween candy.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup. It is yum! We thought it was wayyyyy better with the ice cream and chocolate syrup.
Like I said in yesterday’s post; why have a plain chocolate bar when you can stuff it inside a pie crust and call it ‘candy bar pie’! It’s a no brainer really 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderfully spooky and sugar filled Halloween.
- 1 pie crust, store-bought or homemade
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
- 1 large
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped up candy bars
- extra candy for on top of pie
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pie crust in a 9" pie plate and crimp edges as desired.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand held blender, cream together the butter and brown sugar. This take 1-2 minutes.
- Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
- Add baking powder, salt, and flour and stir together with a wooden spoon. Mix in the 1 cup of chopped candy with the wooden spoon.
- Press the dough into the pie plate. It will be very sticky so spray fingers with cooking spray or use plastic baggies over your hands. Press additional chopped candy on top of the dough.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes. The crust and top of pie will be golden brown. It's ok if the very center of the pie still looks underdone, but the entire pie should not look jiggly and not cooked. Mine took closer to 35 minutes.
- Place a loose piece of tin foil over the pie towards the end to prevent the crust and top of pie from burning.
- Serve warm with ice cream & chocolate sauce!
