Candy Pie

How was your Thanksgiving?  Are you full?

I actually ate more the day AFTER Thanksgiving than on the day itself.  I feel like I let my guard down, thought I had Thanksgiving topped.  I got cocky.

We are lucky enough to to have great friends and neighbors and the day after Thanksgiving we have “Friendsgiving”.  Well, I was weak.  I made and ate THIS and THIS and my friend made THESE and I all but licked the bowl clean.

I woke up Saturday morning telling myself I would only drink water until Christmas.  It took me ’til about…say…9:30 am until I was back on food.  I told you I was weak.


You wanna know what happened?  Pie.  Actually pudding pie.

I am not a pudding person.  I have never been a pie person. Soooo, when I decided to make this I knew I wouldn’t be tempted.

I am wrong a lot.

Here’s the thing about this pie…it’s the pudding.

When I said I am not a pudding person that is true.  I don’t like making it, I don’t like the texture, I don’t like the taste.

WELLLLLL, I had never made homemade pudding.

Life changer, people.  Life.  Changer.

Here’s what you need to know about this Candy Pie:

  • Oreo crust?  Check.
  • Homemade chocolate pudding?  Check.
  • Milky Way?  Check.
  • Reese’s Cups?  Check.
  • Marshmallows?  Check
  • Brownies?  Check.
  • Whipped cream?  Check.
  • M&M’s?  Check.

Do I have your attention?  All of those ingredients rock my world…but it’s the pudding people…make it.


First make your Oreo crust, or use a store bought if you want…but they’re really easy.  Just mash up some Oreos and mix with melted butter and press into a pie pan and bake.

Now, also, if you are feeling all “make-from-scratchy” go ahead and bake up some brownies.  Whatever kind you like.  If not, use store bought brownies.  It really won’t make too much of a difference.

Next, make your pudding.  Again, if you are really not into it, you can certainly use a boxed pudding mix, but I urge you to make the pudding.

While your pudding is cooling chop up you Milky Way and brownies.  Spread them on top of your Oreo crust.

Then mix your Reese’s and marshmallows into your cooled pudding.

Pour this deliciousness on top of your Milky Way and brownies.  Chill the pie for 3 hours.

Then when you are ready to serve, spread some whipped cream on top, again, either homemade or store-bought, and sprinkle some M&Ms on, because they’re pretty.

Now, I dare you not to stand over the pie plate and eat it with a spoon.  I straight-up dare you.



Candy Pie

  1. In a medium sauce pan whisk together sugar, cornstarch and salt. Whisk in milk and egg yolks until well combined. Place saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly. When mixture comes to a boil, add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time and vanilla. Next add the chocolate a little at a time and whisk until melted. When melted and smooth, remove from heat. Let cool for 10 – 15 minutes and then fold in your Reese’s and marshmallows.
  2. Layer your crust with your Milky Way and brownies and then pour pudding mixture on top of that. Cover pie tightly with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  3. When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and spread your whipped topping or whipped cream on the pudding. Garnish with your M&Ms.
  4. Serve cold.

Coconut caramel pie!!


Hey Jen D… I would love that recipe (coconut caramel pie) pls !!!


I’ve had more desserts since Thanksgiving too! It suddenly became imperative Friday night to make a truffle cake, and that turned out to be a brilliant ideal.

I was going to buy a KitchenAid this weekend, but my house got robbed this week and I’ve got to save my cash for re-buying my life, so… winning would be fabulous!

French silk pie is my favorite!

Kristen D

Yum for pie, my very favorite is PB PIE!! second runner up – Key Lime!


I like pies, but I’m really more of a tart fan, something about pie crust just doesn’t make me feel very excited…but I got a soft spot of cherry pie… Yummmm!


It’s not a pie, but cheesecake if my favorite pie-like dessert!


My favorite pie is a good ole’ pumpkin pie with lots of cool whip! Yumm!

There’s a toasted coconut pecan caramel pie that I LOVE. I think it’s made with sweetened condensed milk and cool whip or something. I could eat that pie everyday, everyday!


Oatmeal pie is my favorite!

C&C Cakery

Pumpkin Pie. Always Pumpkin Pie. In fact, I could just chow down on the pumpkin pie filling – any time of year. I wish it was socially acceptable to do so 😉


I’m not a huge pie fan (more of a cake girl) but I would totally dig into some candy pie!


My favorite pie has to be lemon cream or meringue …… so comforting and just the right amount of tart and sweet. Brings me back to being 8 years old again ! Thank you for your thoughtfulness in offering such a wonderful gift…. I have my grandmothers and after almost 35 years of baking it is losing it’s edge.


Oh I’ve been BEGGING for a Kitchenaid for AGES!!!!! I would adore one.


Gonna have to try this pie–it has all my favorite candy in it…However, I am gaining weight just reading the recipe….This looks so go, it probably ought to be illegal!!


Mmmm…. favorite pie is my Grandma’s home-made apple pie with a slice of american cheese melted on top with a scoop of home-made vanilla ice cream! YUMMEROOS!

Kimberly Wood

I’m the only one in my family that loves pie! MMMmmm! I have very fond memories of my Grandma’s fresh blueberry pie and there’s nothing like homemade apple pie, but I think my very favourite is old fashioned Lemon Meringue Pie. Yum!
(I’m thinking with that Candy Pie Recipe I may be able to convert my kids and hubby to pies!)


This pie is…amazing! I can’t wait to try it out on the family when I get moved to my new place. Although my next home is temporary until I find something permanent, I still plan to get all my kitchen stuff unpacked and be making lots of goodies for Christmas. I think this pie will be well-loved by my sweet-toothed family members back home! =)

Jenny Petrovich

I LOVE my moms homemade chocolate cream pie! Its truly divine! And I love anything by Kitchen Aid 🙂


I love anything lemon, so I’d go with lemon meringue pie!

Andrea McIntyre

I just made a chocolate dream pie for Thanksgiving, but now I must make this one!!! Anything with an Oreo crust and added chocolate is a keeper!! And the Kitchen Aid would be an added bonus! 🙂


Its a toss up between Pumpkin pie and Pumpkin cheesecake. We even have it on Easter 🙂


I just love apple pie! But I am going to have to try your candy pie. Sounds heavenly!


I love Egg custard pie!!!!!


Buttermilk Pie is my favorite. I am diabetic and now need a shot of insulin …. and that is just from reading the recipe. I have all the ingredients and this is being made for my Grand Kids. Boy, will they love me more and their parents, a little less. I bake for my Hubby and everyone else… the sharing part of cooking and a Kitchen Aid mixer would sure make everything much easier. Thanks for such a great blog!


water until Christmas is what I said too! this looks great

Jessica greenly

I love to make apple pie

Laurieann Tobias

It’s was a toss up between apple pie with a crumb topping and chocolate pudding pie smothered in whipped cream… now, after reading your blog on the Candy Pie I’m kinda thinking I may have a new ultimate favorite, thank you for sharing.

Jen Day

Ummmm I love PIIIIEEEEEE!! Yours looks great. My fav is pecan…but more on the butter tart consistency…ooooeey gooeey goood!

Caroline Gallant

It’s a toss up between Lemon Meringue and Grasshopper Pie!! Lemon Meringue is more of my go-to summer pie because i find it so refreshing, but my Great Aunt always made Grasshopper pie for everyone during the holidays… chocolate and mint with a dollop of whipped cream on top? who can say no to that?!?!!?


My favorite pie isn’t so much a pie as it is a pie/cobbler- It’s a fresh berry pie with whisky and a sweet biscuit crust- so good


I LOVE caramel pecan pie~AND, would really love a Kitchenaid mixer!

Heather Honnoll

This pie looks sinfully delicious! My favorite pie is a toss up between chocolate meringue pie with graham cracker crust and my aunt’s blueberry pie. Soooo good.


My favorite pie has got to be Pecan Pie!

KC Harrington

Your post made me chuckle. I swore I wouldn’t have anything but water until Christmas, too – well, I decided water AND coffee! I think it only took me until about 8:45 a.m.! At any rate, the pie looks great! Looking forward to making treats for my son who becomes a U.S. Marine this week!

Jennifer Monroe

Ok, i am making my grocery list out as we speak and going to the market to pick up everything to make the pie you listed above.. my children will forever love you and so will i!!!
I have to say after all these years of being a cheesecake fanatic i was asked to make a Lemon Chess Pie for a friends Thanksgiving dinner and i have to admit that it is now my favorite that is maybe until i make this Candy Pie tonight!!
