Easy Snickers Bar Pie – Gluten-free too!

Gluten-free Snickers Pie (really a cheesecake) | The Baking Beauties

Time for something sweet! This Snickers pie was delicious! If you keep some gluten-free chocolate crumbs on hand in the freezer, like I do, it doesn’t take much longer than using a pre-made shell. Plus, instead of getting two pies, I got one large 10″ cake, made in a springform pan.

NOTES: I did use low-fat cream cheese & low-fat Cool Whip with great results, and it also cut back on some of the calories. :)

    WOW! how did you make the GF crust? it looks wonderful! I am terrible at crusts, any advice?

    @expatadi The crust wasn't hard at all. I baked some gluten-free "oreos", but instead of making into cookies, I made chocolate crumbs. http://www.thebakingbeauties.com/2008/06/gluten-free-oreo-cookies.html
    You can also buy a GF chocolate cookie and pulse it in the food processor until you have crumbs. Hope this helps a little?
