I hope you guys like pie. Because you’re going to see a lot of it over the next few weeks. Why?

Because it’s the Two Weeks of Pie! (#2weeksofpie)

November is all about getting ready for Thanksgiving, and pie is the star of Thanksgiving.

{What? You think the star is Turkey? Pfft.}

So, to get you ready for Thanksgiving and all things wonderful and pie, I’m going to share (at least) 6 pie recipes with you!

Aren’t you excited?

First up: Snickers Peanut Butter Pie.

But wait. Before we get into talking about how amazing this pie is, I have an announcement.

Jordan started a blog. {Really, I wonder why it’s taken so long.}

It’s called Let’s Do This Kids and I really have no idea what direction she’ll take it in. I don’t think she knows either, she just wants to be like her mom. :) If you’re interested, go be her BFF. And remember, she’s only 7. So take the spelling, grammatical errors, and punctuation problems in stride, mmkay?

Alright, now back to this bad boy.

I think I impressed myself with this one. It’s a pie crust and a brownie base. Fabulous.

Then, I mixed up some fluff and peanut butter. Did you know that makes nougat? Rich, peanut buttery nougat? And I spread it on top the brownies.

Then I melted some caramels and added peanuts. And topped the pie with a hot fudge drizzle and some cut up Snickers bars.

It’s a mouthful, let me tell you. A rich, indulgent, delicious mouthful.

Worth every single calorie!

You gotta make this pie. Really you do. Your in-laws will be awed by your greatness!

Hey, do you follow me on Facebook? Be sure to stop by my page tomorrow. Starting at 6am PST, I’m hosting a Facebook Pie Party! Full directions will be listed there, but the gist is that you share your favorite pie recipe (and a photo you took) on my Facebook wall. Then, throughout the day, I’ll share all your goodies.

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Pie

This pie is insane - a pie crust filled with homemade brownies and peanut butter nougat and topped with caramel and peanuts. It's a Snickers bar in a pie!


For the Pie

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pie crust

For the Filling and Topping

  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff (7 ounces)
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 17 caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons hot fudge sauce
  • 3 snack sized Snickers bars, cut into fourths


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll your pie crust and line your pie plate with it.
  2. Stir melted butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt. Pour over crust.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before topping.
  4. Stir together peanut butter and fluff in a large bowl. (You can use a hand mixer if you want.) Spread evenly over brownie layer.
  5. Place caramels and milk in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Heat for about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Once the caramel is all melted together, stir in the peanuts and spread over the fluff mixture.
  6. Warm your jar of hot fudge sauce in the microwave (about 20-30 seconds). Place in a ziploc bag with the tip cut off and drizzle over pie.
  7. Place sliced Snickers bars around the edge for decoration.


Serve pie at room temperature.

    MMMM pie! I’m a huge of snickers, so me and this pie would get along swimmingly! Who needs plain old pumpkin when you can have this? What a fun idea idea too, two weeks of pie! Love it. I think it’s so adorable your daughter has started a blog! Mine has been into taken food pictures with her iPod!


  14. Mama posted on November 5, 2012 at 4:36 am (#)

    I am so excited to find this recipe! It seems like all the gooey dessert recipes I see are made with cream cheese (which I hate.) I love that this is gooey with NO cream cheese! My mom’s favorite candy bar is Snickers- so I’ll be making this for her birthday. Pinning this for sure!


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 6:34 am

      Thanks!! No cream cheese here, just glorious fluff! :)

    Looks fantastic!! Megan


  16. Maggie Keen posted on November 5, 2012 at 4:45 am (#)

    This looks unbelievable, is it weird to make for Thanksgiving? Congrats to you daughter, how exciting! Keep the pie coming!


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 6:33 am

      Not at all! I, for one, am not a huge fan of pumpkin and pecan pie, so I always make a chocolate something. To satisfy the craving!


  17. Sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more posted on November 5, 2012 at 5:39 am (#)

    first, the pie looks amazing, second how cute is her little blog, my kid would do one, but it would be all about Halo and video games, and even I hear enough about that to not want him to write more about it. Tell her it looks great.


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 6:33 am

      Thanks Sue! I will. :) She’s super excited.


  18. Back For Seconds posted on November 5, 2012 at 6:06 am (#)

    This seriously looks like the best pie ever. Of course, knowing you, I will probably be saying that a lot over the next two pie weeks :) Can’t wait to see more!
    Oh, and me and Bella love Jordan’s blog! She has 2 new BFF’s.


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 6:32 am

      Thank you Stephanie! I saw her comment. Jordan was over the moon! And I bought a new pair of stretchy pants, just for the 2 weeks of pie, lol.


  19. Meg @ Sweet Twist posted on November 5, 2012 at 6:49 am (#)

    This is a great way to start your 2 weeks of pie. WOW!

    That is great she has started a blog, it will be a great creative outlet for her. I am sure she will have a lot of fun with it.


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

      Thank you Meg! She’s loving it so far. :)


  20. Melissa posted on November 5, 2012 at 7:01 am (#)

  21. Liz posted on November 5, 2012 at 7:03 am (#)

    Anything with Snickers and I’m in! My favorite chocolate bar by far! This pie looks devine. I’m pinning and adding to my must-make list. :)

    I’m in love with this pie! Is that wrong? And I mean true love, like I’d give up my kids (well not the kids) but the dog for this pie! The pecan pie may just have to move over to the side this Thanksgiving!


    • crazyforcrust replied on November 5th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

      No, I have the same feeling. About this one and many others that I made. :) It’s totally normal! LOL

    Hey i just made this for my inlaws who will come tomorrow and loved the individual components.. though i think it’s tooooo sweet for my family’s taste. it’s set and getting cold in the fridge now. any quick ideas on how i could make it appear less sweet? :/


    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 28th, 2013 at 9:30 am

      I’m sorry it’s too sweet for your tastes! Possibly add more peanuts for some salt balance? I hope they love it anyway!
