Candy Bar Pie - a fun use of that leftover Halloween candy

 

I hope that everyone had a great Halloween!  My son had lots of fun trick or treating with a couple of his friends.  The weather wasn’t to bad, it was near 60 during the day.  So walking around was pretty comfortable.  Of course today it is almost 70 out!  My son’s basketball season started last week, so at least he ran around for while yesterday to burn off all of the candy that he ate.  I on the other hand, and just doing my best not to raid his bag!

How long do you let your kids eat their candy?  I have friends who give it 2 weeks and then just throw it all away.  Others get rid of it just a couple days later.  My son tends to forget about his after a couple days, so I end up getting rid of it months and months later.  But instead of just throwing it away, turn some of it into this candy bar pie!  A tasty and fun treat that everyone will love.

Candy Bar Pie - turn all of that leftover candy into a fun pie!

Use your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.  Instead of adding the chocolate chips add in chopped candy.  I used a few Kit-Kats, peanut butter cups, crunch bars, and M&M’s for this.  But you can use whatever you find, or have on hand.  Snickers, Rolos, Three Musketeers, Reese’s Pieces etc.  The possibilities are endless.  Press the dough into a pie crust and bake.  I sliced mine when it was still warm, because I have no patience and love melted chocolate.  But to get clean slices, wait until it is fully cooled to serve.  Candy bar pie is definitely a delicious way to use up your leftover candy!

After I made this I found Crazy for Crust had a similar idea.  Check out her recipe that uses blondies as the base!

  1. I cheated on this recipe. Being pressed for time, I used a 30 oz roll of toll house cookie dough and mixed the candy in.
