Snickers Brownie Pie

This pie is all in the title. With a graham cracker crust, which I did make from scratch (snaps for me!), a layer of delicious brownie, a layer of cut-up Snickers bars and topped with a peanut butter whipped cream mix. Not too difficult a recipe, but my friend Grace and I definitely improvised some.

For starters, I don't have a double boiler, which, of course, was needed to melt chocolate. So we made a make-shift one. It got the job done.

Then came time to whip the cream. I, of course, didn't think about the fact that in order to have whipped cream, one must whip it. I don't own a wisk or a mixer. Clearly, not the seasoned baker you may have thought I was. I whipped it by hand using a fork. Surprisingly enough, it worked!!! And didn't take forever. Yay, me!

The reviews are in and this pie is amazing. I wouldn't call it the best pie ever, but it is pretty good. I wasn't a fan of the peanut butter topping. I think because I am not a fan of cream cheese and since I know it is in the topping, I can definitely taste it more than one would think. The graham cracker crust was so fantastic!!!!

I think I am all pied out for a couple days, but there is a Washington
Granny Smith Apple pie sometime in my future for one of my Kappa sisters from Seattle. Until then, happy pie!
