I decided since it’s been a rather long week, I deserved a little something sweet. But if you know me, you know I never need an excuse for sweets! Remember the cheesecake lollipops I made last year. I also made mini snicker pies and loved how easy AND good they were! Last year I used Phyllo cups and snicker bars. I sliced the snicker bar into pieces and put a chunk in each cup. Then I put them in the oven for about 5-10 minutes or until the chocolate is melting down. This year I decided to try something new. Phyllo cups are expensive and I haven’t found any coupons. So I thought I’d try using pie crust. I also bought a bag of mini snickers after Halloween, when they were on clearance! I rolled out the pie crust and used something to press out circles. I placed them into the mini muffin pan and pressed them down to form a mini pie!
Then place a mini snicker into each one. This was so much easier than cutting up a whole bar, but if you don’t have clearance candy, you might save by buying the big bar.
I put them in to the oven at 350 for about 8 minutes. Just keep an eye on them because I left them in too long and they were bubbling over. This makes them hard to remove. Try to take them out before they start to bubble. Let them cool and they should pop right out. Your kitchen will smell like Heaven! I think I even like the pie crust version better. I was able to get about 26 pieces out of one pie crust. This is what we had for dessert tonight. I won’t tell you how many! We’ll be making more later this week to give away. Yummy!
