Back in 2020, I made a lot of Chocolate Pies using this basic recipe. All of them turned out fantastic. When I saw some Pay Day Bars at a grocery store on vacation, I thought about making one of these rich, chocolate pies loaded with Pay Day Bars. Yes, they turned out fantastic.

I ended up making this pie for an Empty Nester’s potluck at our church. It turned out so well. Anyone who enjoys the combination of chocolate and peanuts will love this easy 5-ingredient dessert! If you want one of the easiest desserts to make over the holidays, this Pay Day Chocolate Pie can’t be beat. Enjoy.

Sprinkle with reserved chopped Pay Day Bars, and place halved Pay Day Bars around the outside of the pie. Freeze pie until 30 minutes before serving.

(The plastic lid will not fit on the pie now because it will be too full. I recommend freezing the pie before covering it with any kind of plastic wrap so the wrap doesn’t adhere to the pie filling.)

  • 8 oz. Cool Whip or other non-dairy whipped topping
  • 1 9-inch chocolate pie crust

Instructions

Notes

NOTE: This recipe will not work in an eight-inch chocolate crumb crust. It needs a 9-inch chocolate crumb crust.
 
NOTE: Remove pie from freezer about 20-30 minutes before serving.
 
NOTE: The plastic lid will no longer fit on the pie because it will be too full. I recommend freezing the pie before covering it with any kind of plastic wrap so the wrap doesn’t adhere to the pie filling.
