Father's Day Snickers Bar Cream Pie

Fathers-Day-Snickers-Bar-Cream-Pie

Happy Father’s Day to all you Dad’s out there!! Father’s day is undoubtedly the best excuse ever for making the most indulgent dessert on the plant. It’s undeniable that all Dads all love the rich, decadent, luxurious desserts - well I know mine does!!!

 

 

This is truly one incredible dessert – every mouthful is delicious – the sweet caramel layer, the crunchy peanuts, the smooth peanut butter cream and decadent chocolate – I can’t, right now, think of anything more perfect!

 

 

When was the marathon bar renamed snickers bar?  Well the name is not really important it is that combination ofsoft nougat, caramel and peanuts dipped in chocolate. As a child I loved that combination and it was a super cool occasional treat. Of course, then, I planned on making such foods the basis of my adult diet.

 

 

My Dad would very much have liked to have made them a major food group too. I know that, along with Mars Bars, Snickers Bars were always one of his favourites.

 

 

So I came up with the idea for a dessert that's a healthier version of that amazing snickers bar. It's the snickers bar cream pie. I'm glad to say that he loved it! It retains that creamy caramel peanut combination with that rich decadent chocolate finish.

So Dad, the guy I remember giving me shoulder rides and playing swing ball with me and my sister in the garden and patiently teaching me to drive, this one is for you.

 

 

And I would like to say an extra big thank you to you for helping me set up my flat pack computer desk this morning so I could stand here this afternoon writing my blog - even though it is a) Father’s Day and b) The hottest day of the year so far!!!!! You really are an awesome Dad and I hope you had an amazing Day!

 

 

If it feels a little rich on a hot day today it is also delicious straight from the freezer – turning ‘Snickers Bar’ Cream Pie into ‘Snickers Bar’ Ice Cream Pie – Oh yeah!!!!
