No-Bake Snickers Pie
This No-Bake Snickers Pie is easy to make in just 10 minutes with only 7 ingredients! No need to turn on the oven, and it is so delicious, creamy, and flavorful.
Last week, Ally and Mariah, two of my best friends from school, came to San Diego for a few days and since I had brought Mariah a dessert made of all of her favorite things, Ally requested a dessert that had all of her favorite things. I know Ally has a major thing for Snickers, cheesecake, chocolate, and caramel so I decided I would play off on a combo of all of them. Since I love all sorts of caramel recipes, you know I had to add that in too :)
My mind ment straight to no-bake cheesecake, and my recipe for my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie snuck into my head. Since Ally also loves Oreo crusts, I figured this would be absolutely perfect.
And oh was it… Let me get put it this way: when Ally tasted this no-bake snickers pie, a legitimate tear of happiness slid down her cheek, followed by the words “oh my God!” said more times in a row than probably ever.
This chocolate caramel no-bake pie is tear inducing. You use dulce de leche FOUR times. Yeah…I never said it was healthy. But it is worth every delicious bite.
To be honest, this pie is pure decadence. It is RICH and you can only handle a sliver at a time. But it’s so good, and perfect as a Halloween dessert (you have to use that candy somehow, right?), or for any other holiday or gathering.
What you need to make this Snickers Pie:
We use some tricks to make this Snickers Pie super easy to make! Let’s get into it:
- I used a storebought Oreo pie crust so that the pie could be done as soon as possible, which also makes this a no-bake pie recipe! Of course, feel free to make your own Oreo crust (you can use the recipe from the chocolate peanut butter pie).
- Use store-bought dulce de leche, which is a thick, delicious caramel spread. It’s spread thin on the crust for a thin caramelly layer in every. single. bite. Some Snickers and peanuts get sprinkled on top of the dulce de leche too.
- THE FILLING! It is SO good, and super easy to make: all you need is cream cheese, Cool Whip, more dulce de leche, and powdered sugar. And Snickers. You can try using an equal amount of homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip if you prefer.
What do we use for the Snickers Pie topping?!
For the incredible topping, we add a semi-sweet chocolate drizzle, with a dulce de leche swirl, chopped peanuts, and chopped Snickers. I had to make sure all the decadent things in the pie were represented in full on the top. This is a little bit *extra*, but it sure is delicious.
And there you have it folks, the directions to heaven. Also, if you were wondering why half the snickers pie is gone in the pictures… Well that’s the damage that gets done when you have three girls home alone with this pie.
I’ve already thought of 101 variations to this recipe, so I really hope you all like it! Then, I can keep making more versions of it. Please make it. ASAP. I want to hear your thoughts and reviews in the comments!!

I NEED a big slice of this. It looks incredible!!!
Cannot wait to try this Rachel! So easy and so delicious!Can’t wait to see more versions!
Why do I not have any dulce de leche at home when I need it! WAHHHH I have to make this!
Doesn’t that always happen?! You could use a caramel sauce in the dulce de leches place if you wanted to – just use a thicker caramel sauce, not a thin runny one!
that cake looks delicious, just wondering what is dulce de leche?? I have never heard of it, im in Ireland, do u know where I could purchase it over here?
Hi Catriona, Dulce de leche is a kind of caramel-like treat. It’s a latin american ingredient, so I can see why it wouldn’t be available in Ireland! In place of it, you can use a thick caramel sauce or make your own. If you Google how to make dulce de leche, you’ll find a ton of recipes! Most use a can of sweetened condensed milk that you just simmer in water for a few hours. Hope this helps!
thanks for the reply Rachel…I never thought of the condensed milk, I use that to make banoffi pie filling, so that would do nicely, cheers!
It looks amazing Rachel! I love these kinds of pies! And the dulce de leche – yes!! So yum!
Wow, that’s a slice of heaven
Oh goodness gracious! This looks incredible! And so sinful – I love it!
Holy decadence, girl! I would give my right arm for a slice of this right now!
I love rich things that you only need a little bit of, it’s makes you want and eat more than you should.
*drool* !!! Great job, this looks sooooo good!
This looks like one of the best pies ever!! YUM!
What an incredible looking pie! My hubby loves Snickers so this is a must-make for us. Also diggin the no-bake :) Pinned!
This looks dee-licious!
I’d love to have you share this or any of your amazing posts at our weekly Super Saturday Link Party. It starts Friday’s at 6pm, hope we see you there!
Wow! This looks amazing. And easy! I love it! :)
all my favorite things into one :)
Who’s hating on Cool Whip!? That stuff is the bomb. Making a pie with it tonight, actually. :) Honestly, I’m not that big of a Snicker’s fan, and I feel like I need this pie in my mouth immediately. It looks beyond fantastic!
Thanks!! Honestly, I’m not the biggest Snickers fan either, I just used it because it was Ally’s favorite! You can definitely replace the Snicker’s with whatever chocolate bar your heart desires.
Snickers is my fav chocolate bar. I’m so going to make this! :)
I can totally be your BFF if you make me these every time we see each other! I love snickers and dulce de leche is one of my weaknesses! Delish!!
I’m talking about this pie is out of control. OUTTA CONTROL!!! I love it. And I’m pretty sure I also need it.
This looks insanely delicious! I could live on Snickers (it has nuts – -that makes it like an energy bar, right???). And no-bake cheesecake is such a great dessert, especially when it’s still way too hot to turn on the oven.
I’m definitely bookmarking this for later.
I hate to sound like everyone else, BUT this looks INSANE!
My daughter (6yearsold) made this today and everyone was raving about it. So delicious!
Okay, so my wife sent me a link to this recipe- and I promptly asked her to meet me at the grocery store. Failing to find a premade oreo crust, I remembered a simple one- 24 oreos without cream (48 wafers) and 1/4 cup butter (crush the wafers until they’re about the consistency of panko crumbs) and put it in a pie tin. Refrigerate for an hour before you make the rest of the pie.
SO- we make this decadent MONSTROSITY and take pictures- and text ’em to a few friends. Within the hour my apartment is full of people lining up to try this thing. I dole it out a sliver at a time (a tenth of the pie max at once) and it’s almost gone. People hate me for this, people love me for this, I am a god, my wife married satan incarnate, and so on.
Huge success. :D
LOVED this comment. You know it’s funny when it made me laugh while I was still in bed, pre-coffee :) So glad that everyone liked it. This recipe is a definitely favorite of my friends and family as well! Thanks for stopping by, and trying the recipe!
Hi! I was just wondering if I could incorporate a chocolate spread in this recipe? :)
You most definitely could! If you wanted to make it totally chocolatey, simply replace the dulce de leche with chocolate spread. You could also do a combo of the two (yum!), just try to keep the ingredient proportions similar. Because it’s a no-bake recipe, you can taste as you go and adjust to your likings. Happy baking!
Use Nutella instead of peanut butter
I have just got to say …You included all my faves in this pie. I’m making it in about 15 mins from right now!! Thanks for ALL the recipes♡
So glad you like them Terrie! :) Hope you love this pie!
Wow Rachel! Snickers is my favorite candy and it is good to know that I can make it in pie form with no baking required.
This pie was really good! I am wondering if you have tried to use heavy whipping cream instead of cool whip? And if you have ever tried to make the filling some sort of chocolate?
I never have, but I imagine it would hold up fairly well. Just be sure to keep it refrigerated and don’t over mix the batter! To make the filling chocolate flavored, replace the dulce de leche with melted semi-sweet chocolate or a hot fudge sauce!
I made it with heavy whipping cream—made my own whipped cream with it before adding to the pie. It worked!
i tried making this
the cheese cake didn’t set though.. just wondering if a little gelatin should help ?
Hi S, how odd! It should set in the fridge without the need for gelatin, but if you’re having issues, a tiny bit of gelatin could help thicken it up a bit. Enjoy!
i’ll try it with gelatin and let you know
so this feedback is kinda late.. i tried with a bit of gelatin too.. it would just kinda melt after a while… is too much whipping a problem, cause i sure am whipping it up real good for air bubbles to form.
also could these be a problem:
1. i’m not using dulce de leche… i’m just cooking condensed milk, till its thick enough.
2. also im using a regular heavy cream, unwhipped
would do u think is the real cause
the taste btw… is mind blowing
just hope it stays up for long this time
I haven’t made this but it sounds and looks delicious and I love snickers so this would come in handy except being a pre-diabetic doesn’t help with the craving of something so rich!! So Thank You For Sharing This Recipe,
This pie looks awesome! Can I freeze it? Then let it sit to thaw a bit before serving?
Yes you should be able to freeze it with no problems, I’d let it thaw for a few hours in the fridge before serving.
Hi it looks amazing!!
Could you use Mars bars instead of Snickers? I presume so but what do you think?
Obviously but allergy sufferers can’t eat the snickers version! But what do you think about non-nut options?
Hmmm I’ve never had a Mars Bar! Haha but yeah you could use any candy you want :) for a nut-free version, just use a nut-free candy and skip the peanuts. Enjoy :)
What I love about this recipe is that the pie filling isn’t made out of peanut butter. True snickers fans would know the middle of a snickers is nougat and carmel, not peanut. Most other recipes I’ve seen so far all use peanut butter. Can’t wait to try this! Thank you!!
Hope you love it, Tess! You get the little hint of crunchy peanuts on top, but it’s definitely not overwhelmingly peanut butter-y :)
Hi, my dear is this wonderful!!!
I am living in a mountain cabin and no Duce a leche here so… improvisation was caramel sauce ( inc cream aisle) and 1/4 cup of peanut butter in cool whip mixture. Topped with milk chocolate chips peanuts, caramel sauce! The rest is alll your creation. Thank you . Blessed mountain mama.
So glad you enjoyed it, Sharon!! Thanks for your feedback and so glad you made it work for you! :)
