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?

    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…..love the sharing part of cooking and a Kitchen Aid mixer would sure make everything much easier. Thanks for such a great blog!

    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! 🙂

    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! =)

  4. 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 is a must make at my Daughters for Christmas this year! My grandsons will love it, and with Grandma there, she says “yes you can have more honey” !

  6. Shelley

    My favorite pie is Kalhua Cream pie….but I’m thinking after trying this candy pie it may move above as my favorite on my list 😉 Yum!!

  7. 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!

  8. Gail

    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!!

  9. Michele

    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.

    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!

  11. 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!
