Halloween trick-or-treating events are about to be in full swing!  And along with trick-or-treating events comes ... candy overload.

Yes, until we had our sweet 7-year-old Little Miss H. join our family 2 years ago, I truly had no understanding of just how much candy overload comes along with having a kid.  With Halloween trick-or-treating and fall festival events, followed by Christmas parties, Valentine's candy exchanges, and then Easter egg hunts and bunny visits, there seems to be a never-ending stream of candy flowing through our life.

What's a girl to do with all that candy?

Well, aside from gobbling it up straight-up or {admittedly} making some of it disappear in the garbage can, whipping up this creamy, chocolatey Candy Bar Cheesecake Pie is a great option.

Based on the Twix Cheesecake Pie recipe I shared a couple years back, the beauty of this pie is you can use about any combination of candy bars you'd like in the filling.

Want all Milky Way?  Sure.  Are Snickers more your thing?  Go for it.  Want to use a mixture of all those scrumptious candy bars in your youngins' trick-or-treat bag?  That's the most yummy combination of all!

In the pictured version, I used a combination of Snickers, Milky Way, 3 Muskateers, and Twix inside the pie.

Then I used the same combo plus some plain M&Ms on the top.  We found out through trial-and-error that M&Ms inside the pie stay intact and add a crunchy element to the pie's texture ... which is fine, but we prefer our pie's cheesecake filling to stay creamy.  So we sprinkle just a few M&Ms on top for fun.  Because they give the cheesecake pie such a pretty little pop of color.

So, if like us, you find yourself experiencing candy overload ... whether that be with leftover Halloween candy or one of the many other candy-loaded times of the year, ... give this fun and tasty Candy Bar Cheesecake Pie a try.

It sure is a tasty little remedy for candy overload!

(Printable recipe)

Ingredients
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. chopped candy bars* {about 16 fun-size bars}
  • 1 8-inch chocolate cookie pie crust
  • 1/4 c. caramel ice cream topping
Directions
  1. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs on medium speed until smooth.
  2. Stir in 1 and 1/2 cups of the chopped candy bars {reserving the remaining 1/2 cup for the top}.
  3. Pour mixture into the pie crust. Bake at 325 degrees until set, 45 - 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the top with remaining 1/2 cup chopped candy bars. Chill until firm, about 8 to 10 hours or overnight. Drizzle with caramel ice cream topping.
*NOTE:  I used a combination of Snickers, Milky Way, 3 Muskateers, and Twix inside the pie, and the same combo plus some plain M&Ms on the top.  M&Ms inside the pie stay intact and add a crunchy element to the pie's texture ... which is fine, but we prefer our pie's cheesecake filling to stay creamy.

Enjoy!
