Pie Recipes #108 - Almond Joy Pie

Almond Joy Chocolate Pie
Thanks again to Jeannie!

For the crust:
20 Almond Joy candy bar Miniatures
or 10 Almond Joy Snack Size bars
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

For the filling:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
16 Almond Joy candy bar Miniatures or
8 Almond Joy Snack Size bars, cut in 1/2" pieces.
(Candy will cut easier if placed in freezer 15 min
before cutting.)
sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping (optional)


For the crust:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly butter a 9" pie plate.

Place ingredients in a food processor. Process until mix is
thoroughly blended. Press onto bottom & up the sides of a
prepared pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool
completely on a rack.

For the filling:
In a medium saucepan, stir together sugar, starch, cocoa & salt.
Blend in the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly
with a wire whisk, until it boils. Boil and stir for 1 minute.
(Mix will be very thick.) Remove from heat; blend in vanilla.
Add candy pieces and stir until melted.

Pour into prepared crust; press plastic wrap onto surface.
Refrigerate. Top with sweetened whipped cream, if desired.

Servings: 6 - 8
