Hello, Halloween candy. Sitting there in the bowl on the counter. Staring at me. All chocolately and delicious.
Let’s make a pie.
A pie based off of the Snickers caramel apple pie going around the Pinterest world right now. But, slightly different because we only went trick or treating at approximately six houses. Eighteen-month-olds don’t need very much candy. Hence stealing it for a pie 😉
First, we mix an 8oz container of whipped cream and 3/4 cups of sweetened condensed milk.
In the meantime, we toast 1/4 cup of pecans, and then chop up 1 cup of chocolate candy bars… Whatever you have on hand. I think more caramel-ey items would be best, but you have to work with what you’ve got (aka what you didn’t scarf down on Halloween).
Peel and chop a large green apple (about 1 1/2 cups) and add everything into the whipped mixture.
Then stick it all in the (totally store bought) pie crust. I know, I know… I didn’t make the pie crust… But I was following the example of the Snickers pie from Pinterest. It’s fine. It’s just one pie. But I totally could have made my own graham cracker crust. Ah well, too late now. Forgiveness is a good thing, friends…
I topped this pie with chocolate syrup and a few broken up candy bars.
The pie ratings:
The pie rating scale is a Mike-determined scale from 1 – 10, with a 5 being the “classic, homemade apple pie”, and 10 being the highest rating.
