  • To Make Crust: In a medium mixing bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Mix all together and press mixture firmly into a 9 inch pie pan.

  • To Make Fudge Layer: In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. In a double boiler melt semisweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate together with 1/2 cup butter or margarine, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly.

  • Meanwhile beat sugar, whole egg, and egg white in a medium bowl until slightly thickened. To this mixture add vanilla and cooled chocolate. Mix until well blended. Stir in dry ingredient mixture and mix until just combined. Pour mixture into crust and bake in preheated oven for about 17 minutes, or until just set. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Place candy bar slices on this layer.

  • To Make Cream Cheese Layer: In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Spread mixture over candy bars and bake for 15 minutes, or until set. Cool on rack.

  • To Make Garnish: In a small saucepan stir milk chocolate and whipping cream over low heat until smooth. Drizzle over pie. Refrigerate and serve chilled.

I am a professional pastry chef that has used this recipe! It is wonderful! The previous pastry chef (at my job) had ordered a case of snickers that I "inherited" once I took over. Not really knowing how to use them up I visited my favorite site - allrecipes.com! That is when I came upon this recipe for snickers pie. It is a wonderful dessert easy and one that will get you RAVE reviews. The only thing I did differently was put a layer of caramel on top of the cream cheese layer (after it was baked). I feel it adds to the "snickers" feeling of the dessert. Try this dessert! Read More

Pie looked and sounded really good with all the great reviews but it was just too sweet and rich for my family and they love chocolate. Read More

This recipe was very good! I have one recommendation though: Instead of placing the 4 candy bars on top of the pie before baking the last layer CHOP them into smaller pieces this way it melts easier. When you refridgerate the pie the melted candy bar chunks make for difficult cutting. If you chop the candy bars into smaller sections it will melt easier and distribute the Snickers taste throughout the entire pie. Enjoy! Read More

This was an amazing pie! I made it for my hubs b-day and he loved it:) The only reason I rated it lower than 5 was that I had to drastically cut back on the sugar... added 1/4 cup to fudge and 1/4 cup to cream cheese. With those changes it was perfect. Just to make it more peanutty and this was just for my hub I subbed 1/4 cup of peanut butter chips for part of the chocolate chips in the fudge. Also made peanut butter/chocolate ganache for the top and doubled the amount listed to cover the full pie. PS - If you want to make your life easier take advantage of your microwave! Don't chop or cube the chocolate and butter. Pop it in a bowl and nuke it 30 secs and stir and pop it back for 15 secs at a time stirring until melted. For ganache microwave the cream until you see a few bubbles and then throw the chocolate in and stir til melted. So much easier! Not like someone's going to eat your pie and say..."Oh I can taste the radiation!" LOL:) Great recipe and thank you Dayna for helping make my husband happy for his birthday! Read More

This is an AWESOME dessert! This was the first recipe on allrecipes that I found that looked interesting. I made it last nite and let it stay in the fridge until this morning. It is simply AMAZING! My parents loved it! The snicker bars add a lot to this. However I would advise everyone who buys a pie crust instead of making it to buy a DEEP-dish pie crust. Its a pretty big pie! And SOOO rich! THank you!!!! Read More

This pie won 1st Place in our hometown festival pie contest. My daughter made this pie and it was a great recipe to teach how to follow a recipe for a new cook. We drizzled melted chocolate almond bark and sprinkled with crushed peanuts on top. It was a beautiful sight. Great recipe! Read More

This pie was a hit with more sophisticated taste buds. I was told that it was restaurant quality and have been requested to make it again. Great pie. The Snickers melt in the middle so use at least the recommended amount to get the chewy carmely effect. Read More

This was definitely yummy! I thought the cream cheese would be a bad idea but it fit very well. The cooking times seem to be off. I have a well calibrated oven and live near sea level... neither layer was 'set' after the appointed times and I had to leave the pie in longer. Nonetheless it is very rich and yummy. It is definitely better served chilled. Read More

This recipe was very good but not for those who don't like rich desserts. I made the recipe exactly as written except I cheated in two ways: I used a premade graham cracker crust and instead of using a double boiler I used the microwave - - less dishes to wash. I will be making this again but instead might use a shortbread crust instead of graham cracker. Also the chocolate part of the recipe covered over 1/2 of the pie so I didn't have enough room to add all of the cream cheese part. Next time I won't use all of the chocolate batter or else get a deeper pie pan. I also liked the idea of using a springform pan whch might be better. Thanks for such a delicious recipe! Read More
