Frozen Snickers Pie: easy 5 ingredient frozen pie, try Milky Way too!!

I have made this Frozen Snickers Pie several times over the years. It’s such an easy recipe, but the taste is incredibly deep!

By melting down Snickers candy bars, you get all the flavors of chocolate, nuts, and caramel without all the work. This would work for Milky Way too (I’ve tried it!!).

I use the store bought graham cracker crusts on this recipe, because they come in the foil pie tin with lid. Which is perfect for going straight into the freezer after making making the filling. If you choose to make a homemade crust, feel free to do so! A chocolate crust is wonderful too, in case you were wondering.

I like to let my pie sit out about 15 minutes before slicing and serving. I prefer it to be a little softer. However, if you keep it completely frozen, it’s almost like ice cream! You decide how you want to enjoy this pie, after all, you’re the one making it! Don’t forget to save some Snickers bars for the garnish!

I definitely recommend trying the Milky Way version too. But yes, so many delicious possibilities (and of course, one could sub the PB for nutella or Biscoff too….)

Awesome can’t wait to indulge!


Mary February 16, 2014 at 9:39 am

Hi Aimee, I’m wondering if you substitute something for the peanut butter when making the Milky Way version? I’m concerned that the PB would mask the flavor of my beloved Milky Ways….


Miranda April 21, 2014 at 4:36 pm

are you supposed to bake the pie crust first?


aimee @ shugarysweets April 22, 2014 at 10:43 pm

I just use a store bought graham cracker crust. No baking needed.


Nika Moncrief May 11, 2014 at 8:30 pm

Is the pie supposed to be in the fridge or freezer once sliced ?


travel May 22, 2014 at 3:40 pm

Can I substitute whipped cream for the Cool-Whip?


Francine June 27, 2014 at 6:15 am

Is there any pies made with butterfingers?
