Gooey Candy Bar Peanut Butter Pie

18 chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted + 1/2 cup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup Karo light corn syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups chopped candy bar of choice
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Caramel sauce
Whipped cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together crushed cookies and melted 3 tablespoons butter until well combined; press crumbs into bottom and up the sides of pie dish.

Melt remaining 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly, until butter foams and starts to turn golden brown.  Transfer butter to a large mixing bowl. 
Add brown sugar to mixing bowl.  Mix together, using a mixer on medium speed, until well combined - about 1 minute.  Beat in peanut butter, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt until well combined - about 2 minutes.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour until just combined.  Stir in candy bar until combined.  Spread filling on top of chocolate cookie crust.  Evenly sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake 23-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cool completely before slicing.  Drizzle caramel sauce on top of pie and serve with whipped cream.

Makes 10 servings

  1. This looks delicious! I would gladly eat the whole thing myself :)

    If you find something that you love on CL that's not immediately available, you could always try airbnb.com for short term rentals. I haven't tried it personally, but I've heard good things.

  3. Wow that pie looks incredible! I'm with you, I'd much rather have my calories in pie/cake than drinks. I don't really drink as I find I have one sip and I've had enough. This pie looks seriously indulgant. Good luck with the last few bits of packing!

  5. Wow, this looks fantastic! This wins a prize in my books. I am a hoarder, so I can't talk - I have about 5 boxes in my spare room that I haven't opened in two years. Good luck with the move - Chicago will be an amazing place to live.

  6. This looks great to me! I think I'm going to have to make this for a post-race dessert.

    I feel your packing pain. It's never fun, you realize you have accumulated more stuff than you thought, and it takes forever!

  7. I remember throwing out a lot of stuff when I moved into my current place. It's amazing how much MORE stuff we've added. Despite being a sentimental packrat Cancerian, I have learned that stuff matters little and sometimes you have to let go of things. If only I could get my husband to follow suit!

    That pie would have won any contest I would be judging. Wow! Love the addition of Twix - my favorite candy bar.

    Good luck finding your new home - empty as it may be. ;-)

  11. So, so much sugar. Lol! It looks delish though for when I'm feeling like having a sugar coma. Great job on the pie! And good luck finding a place in Chicago...I'm sure something will pop up. :)

  12. Ha, I would be the same way if I was packing up and moving - kitchen stuff is my most valuable, which makes me laugh... a happy, sugary laugh.

    The pie looks amazing! Boo to not winning, that's always deflating, but I bet it's delicious. Karo doesn't know what they're missing!

  18. This looks soooo sinful. I'm Evernoting to try right after my marathon. And I won't be sharing! Thanks for this recipe!

  19. If you don't have much luck on Craigslist, maybe you could try looking at some University or College websites for their housing listings. There must be a lot in Chicago, and I've found that to be more helpful than CL in the past. Good luck!

  20. I think this recipe states the salt wrong. maybe should be 1/4 tsp & not 1/4 cup...?

  21. Ugh so sorry about that. That's a really bad mistake. Can you imagine that much salt in a pie?!

  23. Three months later and we finally made this pie. Better late than never, right? Darn right, it was amazing! We used chopped up Hershey's Krackle bars and Mr. Goodbars. So rich, but just awesome. Thanks!
