Crunch Bar Pie Recipe

Crunch Bar Pie Recipe
When Halloween comes around, I always buy big bags of candy bars thinking I’ll need them for trick-or-treaters, even though I never get many and end up with tons of candy leftover. Luckily my grown kids visit fairly often and eat lots of it before Halloween. They are picky, however, and no matter which mix of candy bars I buy, there are always some that they don’t touch. This year they avoided the Crunch bars, so I had dozens to use in recipes. Pie is always welcome, so I chopped them coarsely and added them to a cake-like filling. Crunch Bar Pie turned out so good, actually, that I’m serving it at my annual Halloween BOO-ffet. I’ll label it as “Creepy Crunch Pie”. This one is easy to put together, and family and guests will love it.

8 Servings

1/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 cups Crunch Bars -mini, coarsely chopped

1 9" unbaked pie shell
9 miniature Crunch bars, for garnish
sweetened whipped cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Cream the softened butter and sugar; beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Place a fine strainer over the mixture; measure the flour, baking powder, and salt into the strainer and shake through.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, add the milk and mix well; stir in the coarsely chopped Crunch bars, mix well, and transfer the mixture to the unbaked pie shell and smooth the top.
  5. Arrange the 9 Crunch bars on the top.
  6. Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly before cutting into 8 wedges.
  8. Top each wedge with sweetened whipped cream.
