Snickers Pie

This is pure heaven!  A little bit of chocolate, peanut butter and cheesecake all wrapped up together!  Years ago, when I taught school, once a month the parents did a teacher appreciation lunch and one of the moms made this pie!  She was kind enough to share the recipe and this is a family favorite here in the Koll house!

Take 1 15-oz pre-made pie crust and put it in your pie pan.  Bake at 450 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until very light golden brown.  Remove and reduce the oven temp to 325 degrees.
This recipe calls for 5 - 2.07 oz candy bars - I usually just buy this pack of 8 snack size bars.

 Chop the snickers bars up into pieces.
 Mix together 1/2 cup sugar and 12 ounces of cream cheese until smooth.
 Than add 2 eggs, mixing after each one.
 Mix in 1/3 cup sour cream.

And add 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter.  Beat until smooth. (And than try not to eat it straight out of the bowl.  Seriously.)
 Drop the candy bars into the bottom of the pie crust. 

 Spread the cream cheese filling over the candy bars and cook for 30-40 minutes or until center is set.
 Isn't that pretty?  But wait!  There's more :-)
 Add 3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream with 2/3 cup chocolate chips and melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals to avoid burning - stirring each time until smooth.  (You can do this on the stove top too!)
Spread the chocolate on top and put it in the refrigerator - than enjoy it (try not to eat it all at once.)
