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.

MAKE THE PUDDING!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I only have two percent milk, do you think that would be ok for the pudding? Thanks, this looks so good, Im also probably going to make a graham crust since I dont have oreos. How do you think that sounds?

Thank Shelly for getting back with me, I have oreos now! I have a question, in the recipes for the crust it says 2 Tbsp, milk, is that wrong? It doesnt say anything about it in the recipe, thanks again, Sunnie.

OMG this looks wicked yummy! I shared it on FB and a friend commented, “Throw in a potato chip garnish and call it PMS pie.” So true!

I love my Kitchen Aid – will be using it to make this pie w/ a friend next week! I’m hoping she’ll get a Kitchen Aid as a wedding present next month. 🙂

You are amazing! Looks awesome!

Drat! I just missed the deadline by two hours! But that’s alright, as a consolation this is my first time on your blog & I must say that you are a kindred spirit in the kitchen! Food should be fun 🙂 As far as pie goes, after years of asking my friend just bestowed her family recipe for peanut butter pie upon me. I’m not too proud to admit I’ve eaten an entire one by myself in 24 hours. There’s no shame in that. Shock? Yes. Shame? Heavens no.

Cheers,
Heather @ Find That Warm Fuzzy Feeling
