Summer is in full swing, and it is the time of year when people do not want to even think about turning on their ovens! Now, where I live in Montana, it is still not very hot. Maybe close to 80 during the day, then in the 40’s at night. It is beautiful weather! Are you jealous?
But even I am starting to think about recipes that do not require heating up my oven/kitchen. This snickers pie is such a recipe. No baking required! Well, I should qualify that statement. No BAKING required, but you do need to make the caramel on the stove-top. But that’s close enough, right?
Snickers used to be my favorite candy bar. I still love nuts and caramel and chocolate together. My Cashew Snickers Bar recipe has been a big hit, and I figured it was time for another Snickers inspired dish!
Now confession time . . . I am NOT a pie maker. I can make all kinds of desserts, but I never perfected the pie! Something about the crust scares me to death. But this crust is no-bake – you only have to mix the ingredients together and press it into the pie pan. That is my kind of crust (oh, and did I mention it is chocolate?)!
I will admit, this pie is not the most beautiful when you slice it to serve. The caramel and chocolate form a kind of “shell” topping over the nuts, which causes it to break a little when sliced. But in my opinion, the taste is what is most important. (Am I right?) I’m fine with it looking a bit messy as long as the flavor rocks my tastebuds. However, it DOES slice better when it is frozen. My husband likes it frozen, like an ice cream pie!
