I have to admit, I feel a bit lucky that I’m not in charge of the big meal on Thanksgiving—that’s my mom’s job. I do, however, try to make at least one or two contributions to our holiday feast. This year, I’m bringing this fudge-bottom candy crunch pie!

Fudge-bottom candy crunch pie

Chocolate pie has been a staple at our family Thanksgiving dinner for as long as I can remember. It’s my brother’s favorite, so I thought I would give this fudge-bottom candy crunch pie recipe a whirl and try to outdo the plain-jane pre-made pie that we usually have for Thanksgiving dessert.

Reading over the ingredients for this fudge-bottom candy crunch pie recipe made me smile. How can you go wrong with an OREO crust, JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding and COOL WHIP? Here’s the answer—you can’t!

This pie was incredibly easy to make and the addition of the English toffee candy bar pieces and melted BAKER’S chocolate drizzled over the top really made the pie look special. This is a cool, sweet and creamy pie with the perfect OREO crust and a wonderful crunch in every bite.

It’s a pie that I am going to feel proud to place on our family’s table for dessert after our Thanksgiving celebration.
