A deliciously soft and chewy, candy-filled blondie in an all-butter pie crust!
Candy Bar Pie

My partner was very indecisive as to what I should make him for Father’s Day, so my daughter and I chose for him. A candy bar pie!

This pie is basically a giant blondie in a crust, filled with candy. You can use any candy you like! used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Rolos, and chocolate M&Ms. He loves them, our daughter loves them, I love them 😉

I made the crust for this pie, but you can buy one if you haven’t much time, or if you simply want to make things easier. I usually use butter and lard to make pie crust, but I came across this recipe by Crazy For Crust that uses all butter. Let me just say, I’m not going back. This is the best pie crust I’ve ever tasted, so buttery! You’ll agree too.

A deliciously dense, chewy, candy-filled blondie in an all-butter crust. Simple, yet impressive, this is a great recipe for Father’s Day.

Enjoy!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

For the pie crust

  • 1/2 cup butter 113g, diced and chilled
  • 1 and 1/4 cups plain flour 156g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-4 tablespoons ice water

For the filling

  • 1 cup brown sugar 200g
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter 56g, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain flour 125g
  • 1 cup candy bars
  • Extra candy for the top of the pie

Instructions

For the pie crust

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt, add 2tbsp water, then cut the diced butter in using a pastry cutter. Alternatively, use a food processor and pulse a few times until a dough ball forms. If the mixture is too dry, add another 1-2tbsp water. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface.
  2. Roll the dough out to about 1/4" thickness. Make sure to flip and rotate to prevent sticking to the surface. Roll the dough out a few inches larger than the pie dish (about 12" for a 9" dish).
  3. Place in the pie dish, and gently press to fit. Tuck under any overhang and crimp as desired.

For the filling

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/176C.
  2. Cream the brown sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (or you could use a hand mixer), fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add baking powder, salt, and flour and mix.
  3. Add in the candy. Make sure to chop them up if you're using a hand mixer.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared pie dish, then place the extra candy on top.
  5. Bake for 24-30 minutes, until the crust has browned and the top is golden. It may still be a little jiggly in the middle, but that's fine (the pie will set whilst cooling). Cool completely before cutting.
