Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie

 Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie…yeah, say that 10 times fast.  Ok, it might be kind of hard to do that with a mouth full of pie.

 The past few weeks I have been learning the value to saying no.  I usually just can’t say no when I am asked to do different projects.   You need 10 matching headbands for a wedding party this coming weekend.  Sure I will get right on that.   200 cupcakes for a party you are having…sure, why not.  Ok, ok, those might be slightly embellished examples, but you get the point right?  I don’t like to turn down requests for things I know I can do.

So far in the last 2 weeks, I have said no to 3 large graduation cake orders and a hand picked blog project.  It was hard to say no because I know that I can do them.  The thing of it is that I would be so stressed out trying to finish everything all while doing a wedding cake and packing for our family vacation.  It really was in my best interest and my family’s best interest to not take on that many extra projects.

There were a couple that I thought long and hard about trying to fit in…I mean when someone hand picks you for a special blog job/project, you want to say yes immediately.  After weighing everything, I knew that I just couldn’t put the time and effort into it.  The email I got back from my campaign manager saying how impressed she was that I would say no to something like this, reaffirmed to me that saying no to someone or something is ok to do.

Just a little life lesson that I had this weekend that I thought I would share.

 Something I couldn’t say no to this week…this pie!!!!

Oh, my goodness!

Talk about decadent and delicious!  A thick fudge-y pie topped with peanut butter cheesecake that has Peanut Butter Snickers chunks in it and a layer of Cool Whip on top of it.  Yeah…this had my name all over it.  Well, one slice anyway.  Remember the lesson in saying no…it kind of has to apply to desserts too.  All winter and spring I have not said yes, and well, now I’m not going to be wearing some of my summer clothes from last year.

It’s time to start saying no to the goodness that keeps happening in my kitchen…well, after one slice that is :-)  All in the name of recipe research, right?

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 12 slices

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Fudge Brownie pie topped with a peanut butter Snickers cheesecake and Cool Whip is a decadent and delicious dessert.

Ingredients

For the Brownie Layer
1 sheet refrigerated pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
1 brownie mix for 9x13 pan (I used a Pillsbury mix)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg
For the Cheesecake Layer
1 package cream cheese, softened (8 oz.)
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 bag Peanut Butter Snickers Minis, chopped into quarters (11.5 oz.)
Topping
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz.)
2 Tablespoons chocolate sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Let the pie crust sheet sit out on the counter for about 15 minutes. Remove wrapping and unroll gently. Press into a 10 inch pie plate and crimp edges. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water, and egg. Mix just until combined. It will be very thick. Spoon into pie plate and spread out. Bake at 350* for 35 minutes.
  3. While the brownie pie is cooking, place the cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter and beat again until creamy. Stir in the Snickers candies by hand. When the brownie pie is finished baking, remove from the oven and gently spoon the cheesecake batter on top of the brownie. Spread out very gently. Cover the edges of your crust with foil to keep them from burning. Return to the oven and bake another 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Refrigerate until completely cooled. Top with the Cool Whip and sprinkles. Cut into 12 slices. Keep covered in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

    Good for you for saying no! I could take a lesson :) There are always so many things to say yes to, and then I feel guilty when I do say no, so I say yes, a bit too much. It’s always works out but as you said, you can do without the stress!

    Your pie combines pretty much all dessert elements in one from choc to PB, Snickers to cheesecake. All the bases are covered!

    It took me years of overextending to finally learn to say the occasional no. That doesn’t mean I don’t ever get overextended any more and that don’t feel guilty at the no though. But it does feel good sometimes to make the sane decision. Like making this pie. Wise choice! I’ve pinned it to my Recipes to Try board, as I know a few people who would adore this.

      I know I will keep saying yes and overextending myself in the future also, but I’m thankful I made these decisions now! It does feel good to make the sane decision! ;) And thank you so very much for pinning my recipe! I love to hear that people are making and enjoying my creations!

    I have come to learn to say no…just the other day abut volunteering at school. Gosh, it sounds bad, but the lady didn’t realize I was already there all week. So, I’ve come to reassure myself, it’s ok to say no…even if it seems selfish. (But it’s really not.) Rambling….
    Any ways….I saw this on Pinterest this morning before I checked my emails. And this pie of yours just keep saying to me as what it did this morning…”Eat Me!!!!”

    Learning to say no is usually one of those life lessons that it takes a life time to master! So, I am honestly impressed with your ability. In my life I have mostly mastered procrastination and the periodic late late night projects. :) Its just that everything seems to happen at the same time. If life would spread itself out, it would be a lot more convenient! :) As soon as I finish the 6 trays of cookies I promised a friend, I am baking this pie!

    laughing :) because I know this would never last 4-5 days in the fridge !!! :) wow! can’t wait to make this !! Perfect for the Memorial Day holiday ! Thks ~ !!

  6. says

    I’m standing in the kitchen with all the ingredients to make this in front of me and I am so excited. I can’t wait!

    Can I ask, how did you get such a clean cut? Did you refrigerate/freeze the pie? Mine always look so messy.

    • says

      I am so excited to hear you are going to make this pie!!! It is so decadent and delicious! I always run a knife under very hot water and then dry it off before cutting any dessert. After I get the slice out, I also use the clean, hot knife to run it over the sides for a clean looking picture perfect piece :-)

  7. says

    Thanks Jocelyn. Well, I made it and it definitely doesn’t look as perfect as yours does but MAN OH MAN. This is over the top amazing!!! I’ll definitely try to make it again so it’s prettier but heck, we don’t care. We devoured it!

    This obviously looks amazing, and most likely tastes amazing too. I want to make it for a party, but I have a friend who can’t have peanut butter. When looking at the recipe, it’d be easy to substitute regular twix for the PB twix. However, I’d be worried for the cheesecake part to take out the peanut butter without a substitution. Do you have a suggestion?

    • says

      They are actually Snickers in the recipe, but yes, any candy bar would work. You can actually leave out the peanut butter and it won’t affect the pie at all. Let me know how you like it!

  9. Michelle says

    I’m just wondering what kind of oil you used for this? It wasn’t specific, and being a complete beginner at baking, I have no idea what you mean ^^; Please specify~~

  10. Jackie says

    My boyfriend said it’s his favorite thing I ever made. It was sinfully delicious! Can’t wait to have another slice tomorrow and bring the rest to the office. Thanks! I’d definitely make it again.

  11. says

    I made the PB Snickers pie today and it is every bit as good as any pie from a fancy expensive restaurant. Probably better! My family added it to the list of favorites.

    Jocelyn — my crust burnt. I think something maybe wrong with your timings for baking…
    I don’t know how this could have happened. I followed the instructions to a tee

    • says

      Actually the times are right on this as I have made it many times. One thing you can do to keep the crust from burning is to cover the edges with foil after you add the cheesecake layer. I’ll add that to the directions. Sorry about that! How was the rest of the pie???

      • Tom says

        Hi Jocelyn, the pie was great! It was my first time baking a pie, it’s just a shame the crust was hard+crumbly. I’ll use the tinfoil tip when I bake next time. Other than that, the pie was awesome — everyone who had it absolutely loved it!

    • says

      You could make it without the pie crust if you want. But seriously did you see all the other things going into this pie? The pie crust calories are the least of your worries! LOL!
