Prep Time: 25 min

Snickers Bar Pie

This pie won a blue ribbon in the kid's division at the San Diego County Fair, and it also received a 2nd place prize in a community pie contest.


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup chunky or creamy peanut butter
3 regular-sized Snickers candy bars, chopped
16 ounces Cool Whip, thawed (or about 6 cups of stiffly whipped, sweetened cream)
Two prepared graham cracker pie crusts or chocolate cookie pie crusts
chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, chopped snickers and chopped peanuts for garnish


1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese sugar and peanut butter until creamy.

2. Stir in chopped candy bars.

3. Gently fold in the whipped cream just until mixed.

4. Divide between the two crusts. Drizzle chocolate and caramel syrup on top and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and additional chopped snickers. Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.


*For the pie pictured, I made a crust out of Chocolate Teddy Grahams. 2 cups of ground Teddy Grahams, 1 stick of melted butter & 2 Tablespoons sugar, mixed together and pressed into a pie plate. Baked at 350 F. for 7 minutes, and cooled before adding filling.

    It’s beautiful…sounds great tasting. I must make it. I saved the recipe for a later date. I guess I may make it and take one to work and keep one for home. πŸ˜‰

    I have a question…I want to make this pie but use whipping cream. 8 cups of whipping cream sounds like a lot compared to 16 oz (2 cups) of cool whip. Is it because of the air in whipping cream? I just don’t want to screw it up. Thank you I hope mine looks somewhat like your pie when I am finished πŸ™‚

      Hi Melanie, an 16-ounce container of Cool Whip is equivalent to 6 cups whipped cream. I’ve changed the recipe to reflect that. Thanks, and good luck!

    Funny story… back in 2010, as a teen who didn’t bake and who hates pie, I decided I wanted to win my church’s pie contest just to surprise everyone. To my young mind it was like an evil scheme to upset the pie contest results. So I googled ‘contest winning pie recipe’ and this was on the first page (still is 7 years later) and the one that sounded good to me since it wasn’t a traditional fruit pie. I won 2nd place. It’s the only thing I’ve won to this day and I’m still a little bit obnoxiously arrogant about it. So thanks!
