Candy Bar Pie

The chocoholics in my family are huge fans of this decadent Candy Bar Pie! Save it for the holidays, a special occasion or when you can’t ignore those chocolate cravings one more second!

Candy Bar Pie

Bill’s Aunt Alice was a spectacular cook…we were always treated to a gourmet, multi-course meal when visiting her. I have scads of recipe cards written in her tidy penmanship. I never left her house without asking for at least one, if not more recipes. She made excellent, flaky pie crusts, one of her specialties.

She had a couple chocolate pies that I made frequently as a newlywed, one with a meringue crust and this one with a cookie crust. It was high time I revived some of these long-forgotten favorites. I’m certain I used Hershey bars back in the day, but I found these one ounce Valrhona Lait bars at Trader Joes…and I couldn’t resist making a candy bar pie.

Baking for a Cure

This week’s Sunday Supper was sponsored by Chantal. 20 bloggers received their newest pie plate and have baked up something delicious to share. I didn’t sign up in time to participate, so I used a dish from my own collection. We are also Baking for a Cure for cancer…as this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’re encouraging you all to bake something for a friend afflicted by cancer or for the health professionals caring for them. I’m certain each of the Sunday Supper crew has their own story to share. I’ve already mentioned my career as an oncology nurse, my brother-in-law who is living today thanks to a stem cell transplant, and my many friends and family affected by cancer. I pray for better treatments and cures to come from the on-going clinical research. Hopefully very soon.
