No-Bake Hershey's Chocolate Bar Pie

 No-Bake Hershey's Chocolate Bar Pie

Want to make pie but thinking it's too hard?  Or too time consuming?  Or too messy?  Well, then you haven't met this pie yet.  And you won't believe a pie this good can be this easy.

I was introduced to this classic No-Bake Hershey's Chocolate Bar Pie several years ago by a friend.  We were in charge of orchestrating a luncheon for about 90 people at our church.  We wanted the food to be yummy (of course!) ... but also stuff that wouldn't totally tax us in preparation time or difficulty.  For dessert, this pie totally fit the bill!

And can you believe after this wonderful yummy pie introduction, I completely forgot about it?  Yep, hadn't given this pie a second thought since then.  Until now ...

I don't know what exactly made this pie pop back in my mind the other day, but it did.  Calling my name  and beckoning me to make it ... 'make me, make me ... don't you remember how yummy I am?'  

Needless to say, since you can clearly see the photographic evidence, I succumbed to it's call.

So I melted some Hershey's chocolate bars with almonds, folded the melted chocolatey-ness into some Cool Whip whipped topping, and spooned the mixture into an Oreo chocolate crumb crust.  And I was done.  Yes, that's it.  All there is to this pie.  

I told you you wouldn't believe a pie could be this easy!  Oh, but it is.  And the result is so good it totally makes you think it was way harder than that.

With how yummy and easy this pie is, I certainly won't be forgetting about this pie again any time soon.

Ingredients

Directions
  1. Break chocolate bars into pieces and place in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. (Or, place chocolate bar pieces in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM power for one minute or until chocolate is melted and smooth when stirred.) Remove from heat and cool for two minutes.
  2. Fold melted chocolate into the Cool Whip until well combined.  Spoon into crust.  Cover and refrigerate over night, or until set.
* The original recipe calls for 1 (8 oz.) container of Cool Whip, however I use 1 1/2 containers as I prefer a 'fuller' pie.  If you'd like to use just 1 container of Cool Whip, use just 4 Hershey's bars.  Your pie will taste great, it just won't be as full in the pie crust.
** Regular Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars (without almonds) can be substituted.

Enjoy!

  17. Can this be made with Hershey's syrup? Would be less expensive than the chocolate bars and has similar consistency. Hmmmmmmm.

    1. I'm thinking the syrup wouldn't work as well for two reasons: 1. Since it's liquid, it wouldn't firm back up when chilled so I'm thinking the consistency of the pie wouldn't be 'thick' enough, and 2. Hershey's syrup and Hershey Bars have completely different flavors. That being said, I say give it a try if you'd like and see what happens!
