Why this Recipe Works

Move aside fruit pies, it’s Snickers time! When you need a no-bake pie recipe without a long ingredients list, you can’t do better than this easy Frozen Snickers Pie.

Snickers candy bars melted and swirled with peanut butter get mixed with cream and blended with cool whip. Freezing the pie makes the filling firm up without losing the silky fluffy consistency.

In case the Snickers theme wasn’t prominent enough, I also add more Snickers bars on top of the frozen pie. Anyone who loves the combination of peanuts, milk chocolate and caramel is going to go nuts for this dessert!

Ingredient Notes

  • Graham cracker crust – Buy the ready made crust from the store to make the pie extra easy! If you prefer, you can substitute a homemade graham cracker crust too. The crust from this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cheesecake would be perfect.
  • Snickers bars – You need 8 full size bars total, 6 for the filling and 2 more to cut into pieces for the top of the pie. I use original Snickers but feel free to mix it up with your favorite Snickers variety or different candy bars. Milk Ways are delicious in this pie too!
  • Peanut Butter – Creamy regular peanut butter works better than natural varieties.
  • Cool Whip – Use thawed Cool Whip from a tub or substitute Homemade Whipped Cream.

Tips and Tricks

To make the pie filling, you’re going to start by melting the bars with peanut butter and heavy cream on the stove. After combining, make sure to let the filling cool down for at least 20 minutes. The Snickers mixture should be room temperature before you fold in the thawed cool whip.

I leave the pie (covered) in the freezer for about 3 to 4 hours. You can also let it freeze overnight and add the extra cool whip and snickers bars right before serving.

When storing leftover pie, I recommend taking off the Snicker bar garnish and adding fresh ones the next time you serve it–unless you like the taste of frozen hard Snickers bars, in which case go ahead and just leave them on when you put the pie back in the freezer!

Recipe FAQs

Do you have to keep this pie in the freezer?

Yes. The pie will get runny when it starts to thaw, so I’d keep it in the freezer until just before serving. Plus it just tastes so good ice cold!

Can I substitute milk or half and half for the heavy cream?

I don’t recommend this since heavy cream will “set” much better in the freezer than lower fat dairy while adding a delicious rich flavor.

Can you make this with other candy bars?

Sure thing! I love this pie with Milk Ways and Three Musketeers. You can also try Snickers varieties like the almond or peanut butter varieties to mix it up!

Just try to resist a slice or two of Frozen Snickers Pie when it’s on the dessert menu! With crunchy peanuts, creamy nougat and caramel whipping into a creamy pie filling, no one will suspect just how easy this five-ingredient pie was to make!
