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?

  1. That looks amazing! I loved your comment about eating more after Thanksgiving because you let your guard down. That about summed up my Thanksgiving as well!

    My favorite pie is a warm peach pie topped with vanilla bean ice cream. Makes me think of summer!

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks!!

    So far, my favorite pie is your Reese’s Fudge Pie. Oh. My. Goodness. My friend Edie made it for me, and I just about died and went to heaven! I know what you mean about fruit pies. Not a fan. But I love this pie! Oh, and the new peanut butter pie I made this year for Thanksgiving that apparently no one thought they would like (except for me) but was the only pie that was completely gone!! My family should know by now to trust my tastebuds! Love your site!!

    My favorite pie is a little bit embarrassing …. chocolate pudding pie. Pudding from the cook & serve box, frozen Ritz crust! I know, I know, horendous.

  4. gamms

    OH EM GEE, this pie looks crazy good.
    My fav pie, my mother’s oh so secret recipe…passed on only after exacting an oath never to divulge it outside the family under threat of death and/or dismemberment…needless to say my family is a bit dramatic. 🙂

  5. Becca

    Well, my favorite pie would be any one with the word “pie” in it. But i do limit myself, I only eat it on the days ending in “be y “.

  6. Oh that isn’t pie, that is heaven in a pan! I think it would be an instant hit here, so I refuse to try it! Oh and if I got a big kitchen aid like that, I would make it once, just to say thanks.

  7. Fran P.

    My favorite pie is Swiss chocolate (or French Silk, whichever you prefer – I just know that it’s chocolate & sugar & eggs all whipped up and it’s wicked good!!!) 🙂

  8. Megan Tracey

    All time favorite pie is peanut butter pie with a honemade (which in my world means extra oreos, and a little bit rougher chop) Oreo crust…..how could anyone not love that!!! Except for peanut allergy people, but everyone else, YES!!

  9. Amanda

    This looks simply heavenly. My favorite pie is a toss up between peanut butter pie and coconut cream. Heck, who am I kidding, I love ALL pies!

  10. I love making pie. When I was in college, baking became a stress reliever for me, so every Saturday morning I would get up at dawn (long before my roommates) and start making dough from scratch, using Grandma’s recipe. I’d roll out two crusts, dice up whatever fruit was in season, and either do a lattice top, a crumble top or a cut out top, depending on my mood, and bake them.

    A few hours later, I’d show up on the doorstep of my best guy friend’s apartment and pound on their door until one of the boys dragged himself out of bed to collect two fresh out of the oven pies. They quickly learned that if they returned my pie pans by the next weekend, the whole scenario would repeat itself, and enjoyed pie for breakfast every weekend for an entire year.

    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!!

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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?!?!!?

  15. 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.
