MilkyWay Cheesecake Pie- No Bake

If you have been to my blog more than once you probably have figured out my favorite kind of dessert to make... the no bake pie.  Well, I love them because they are easy, cold and delicious and pretty wallet friendly.  I was at the grocery store the other day and found a package of 8 snack size Milkyway candy bars for $1.  So I knew that I would create some kind of no bake dessert with them.  I wasn't sure about how it would turn out, but life is an adventure so I went for it.  I couldn't believe the reaction I got....My husband and son were saying "yum" with every bite.  That also means they will be asking me to make this pie again. : )

To make the pie you will need some of my regular no-bake ingredients and a few others:
  • 1 prepared graham cracker crust (or you can always make your own)
  • 1 brick of cream cheese (regular or light) at room temperature
  • 1 tub of cool whip (regular or light)
  • 8 snack size MilkyWay bars or a few large bars
  • some caramel sauce (used as a ice cream or dessert topping)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips 
  • 2-3 Tbs of milk
Note:   I love cream cheese and cool whip.  They go on sale every so often for $1 each (usually around any holiday time).  I stock up and keep them in my freezer so I always have them on hand to make a no bake dessert.  You just have to defrost them in the fridge overnight and use them in any recipe.

Cream the cream cheese, sugar and a few squirts of the caramel syrup until it is smooth and fluffy with your electric mixer.

 Then fold in 1 tub of cool whip topping and 1/2 the candy bars chopped up.  Fill the graham cracker crust with your pie filling.

Melt the cup of chocolate with some milk in the microwave for 30 seconds (or more/less depending on your microwave).  Stir until the chocolate is well melted and smooth.                                                           Gently spoon the chocolate over the pie filling until it covers the top of the pie.  Garnish with some more pieces of candy bar and some more caramel sauce.  Chill in the fridge for 6-8 hours or overnight for best results.

Slice and serve... Enjoy!
