Candy Bar Pie

This chocolate pie recipe was handed down among a Midwestern family before it was shared with Better Homes and Gardens readers in 1992. Don't cut corners by substituting ordinary pastry crust; the walnut crust is what makes this pie exquisite.

  • 6 1 - 1 1/2 ounce bar milk chocolate with almonds, chopped
  • 15 large marshmallows or 1-1/2 cups tiny marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 recipe Walnut Crust
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Coarsely chopped milk chocolate bars with almonds (optional)
Walnut Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely ground walnuts (6 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

For filling, in a medium saucepan combine the 6 chopped chocolate bars, the marshmallows, and milk. Heat and stir over medium-low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Let the chocolate mixture stand until cooled to room temperature. Chill a large mixing bowl and beaters.
In the chilled mixing bowl beat the 1 cup cream and the vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).
Fold whipped cream mixture into cooled chocolate mixture. Spoon chocolate mixture into Walnut Crust. Freeze about 5 hours or until firm.
To serve, remove from the freezer and let stand about 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.* If desired, garnish with additional whipped cream and chopped chocolate bars. Makes 8 servings.
Walnut Crust
In a medium mixing bowl combine coarsely ground walnuts (6 ounces), melted butter or margarine, and sugar. Press onto the bottom and side of a 9-inch pie plate to form a firm, even crust. Bake in a 325 degree F oven about 10 minutes or until edge is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

    For easier serving, set the pie on a warm, damp towel for a couple of minutes before cutting the first wedge.
