A candy bar filled cookie baked in a pie dish and topped with chocolate frosting. A thick and soft cookie with chocolate candy in every bite.
Get ready for a sugar rush – this Candy Bar Cookie Pie is the ultimate sweet treat. I could slip into a sugar coma just looking at it!
I’m sure you have a stash of Halloween candy lying around … and if you don’t yet, you can raid your kids’ loot after Halloween. Just do whatever is necessary to get your hands on some candy bars to make this cookie pie. This dessert is fun, indulgent, and delicious!
It starts with a simple homemade cookie dough that gets loaded with chopped up candy bars. The dough gets pressed into a pie dish and baked. After cooling, it’s frosted with chocolate buttercream and topped with more candy. To serve, just cut a generous wedge, and devour. The cookie is soft and moist, and there are pieces of candy in every single bite! This cookie pie is unbelievably easy (way easier than making a regular pie!), and the results are drool worthy.
This recipe will bring smiles to the faces of the kids (and adults!) in your life. My three year old is still grinning from ear to ear over this sweet treat. Dig in!
Candy Bar Cookie Pie
- 10 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped candy bars (I used Snickers, Twix, peanut butter cups, and M & M's)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder sifted
- 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar sifted
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 -2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a 9 1/2 inch pie dish and line the bottom with a round of parchment paper. Set aside.
With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat butter and sugars for several minutes, until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract, beat to combine, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, slowly add the the dry ingredients, mixing until combined.
Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in 1 cup of chopped candy bars. Press the dough evenly into the prepared dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of chopped candy bars onto the top of the dough, lightly pressing them down.
Bake for 23-25 minutes, until the edges are light golden brown. Cool completely.
Beat butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of milk for several minutes. If necessary, add an additional tablespoon of milk to thin the frosting.
Using a pastry bag with a decorating tip, pipe the frosting around the outside edge of the cooled cookie. Decorate with M & M's or chopped candy bars.
