No-Bake Snickers Bar Pie





Happy Pi Day! In case you’re not aware, every year math enthusiasts like myself celebrate Pi Day on March 14th because the date 03/14 is also the first three digits of pi (3.14), or π.

But today is not just any Pi Day. Oh no. This year Pi Day is extra special because it’s the first time in a century that the date is 3/14/15, which describes the first FIVE digits of pi, 3.1415. Excitement will peak at 9.26:53am when the date and time will describe pi to 10 digits.

Anyway, there’s your math lesson for today.

My mother is a math teacher, and for as long as I can remember we’ve celebrated Pi Day in the Wierks household by making pie of course.

So today I’m carrying on that tradition by sharing one of my favorite pie recipes – No-Bake Snickers Bar Pie. It’s very simple and you can whip it up within a matter of minutes. The pie tastes like a rich chocolate peanut butter mousse layered with Snickers pieces. Delicious!

I got to make the pie on live TV at Fox59 this morning, and as you can see by the video we all had way too much fun!

Yield: Makes about 16 servings

Directions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and peanut butter until creamy.
  2. Stir in chopped Snickers.
  3. Add the whipped topping just and stir until just mixed.
  4. Gently add the filling to the pie crust and smooth with a spatula
