Candy Bar Pie
5 Snickers cut in pieces
1 pastry shell, deep dish, baked
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup peanut butter
2/ cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. whipping cream
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place Snickers in bottom of pie shell. In a mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, sour cream and peanut butter. Beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into pie shell. Bake 35-40 minutes. Cool. In a small saucepan melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat until smooth. Spread over cooled pie. Refrigerate over night or for several hours.
Comment: This recipe came from a friend who does some catering on the side. I'm not a chocolate lover but the response I've received from everyone who was lucky enough to try this, it was delicious. I did make one mistake. I melted my chips in the microwave. Actually I made 2 mistakes. I used chips that I had in the pantry for a while. Yes, chips do get old and don't melt as well as fresh. But I still used them as a crumble over the top of the pie. I also used the Almond Snickers and Almond Butter so I sprinkled my pie with sliced almonds. I think this would be a fun dish to make with other candies too.
