If you have a sweet tooth and a love for Snickers candy bars, then this Best Easy Snickers Pie Recipe by Paula Deen is sure to become your new favorite dessert. With its creamy caramel and peanut butter filling, topped with chopped Snickers and drizzled with chocolate, this pie is a decadent treat that will satisfy any craving.
To make this delicious pie, you will need a few simple ingredients including a graham cracker crust, cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter, caramel sauce, whipped topping, and, of course, Snickers candy bars. The combination of these ingredients creates a rich and creamy filling that is bursting with flavor.
To start, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Spread this mixture onto the graham cracker crust and bake for 15 minutes. Allow the crust to cool completely before moving on to the next step.
Next, spread a layer of caramel sauce over the cooled crust. Then, chop the Snickers candy bars into small pieces and sprinkle them over the caramel layer. Finish off by spreading a layer of whipped topping over the Snickers and drizzling with melted chocolate.
Once your pie is assembled, allow it to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. This will give the flavors time to meld together and the pie to set.
