Weight Watchers Snickers Pie

OK - it's time for a healthy dessert recipe!!

This one is awesome because you won't even know you're eating lowfat! (or sugar free as the case may be!)   This definitely tastes like MORE! (as in 'I want MORE'=)

I was given this recipe by a good friend (Thank you Cathy!) a while back and I have made it often.  And it's already typed into my 'upcoming-someday' #2 cookbook.

Now that I know what to expect about putting a cookbook together, it should be a little easier, but I don't plan on having it in my hand for atleast a couple of years. I want to take my time and not rush it...and leave out a recipe I had planned on...as happened with my first cookbook. =( (OOPS - sorry Rosie!)

(And I have plans to help 'nudge' a friend, getting her going with her own cookbook, and feel VERY honored I can help at all=)

I was ready to make this pie this week, but couldn't find the frozen non-fat yogurt called for, so I got the sugar-free vanilla ice cream that was availble (Prarie Farms brand is very tasty...of course, this may change the WW points)

It only takes a few simple ingredients!! 

After allowing the ice cream to sit on the counter and soften, this goes together very quickly. 

I like to leave ripples of the peanut butter showing instead of blending it smooth.
It gives me something to bite into when I'm enjoying it!



Pour it into a pie plate and smooth top. Cover tightly and freeze for atleast 2 hours.  Remove from freezer 10 minutes before ready to serve. Swirl the chocolate over the top and you are ready to chill...so to speak!

We have certainly enjoyed every bite of this tasty dish. Trust you will too!


SNICKERS PIE

1 pint (2 cups) vanilla non-fat frozen yogurt softened
2 TB. chunky peanut butter
1/2 pkg. (1/4 cup) sugar free dry instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup fat free frozen whipped topping, thawed
lite chocolate ice cream syrup

In large bowl, combine all ingredients.  Mix well - pour into 8" pie pan.  (I spray a couple quick sprays with Pam...just to make it easier to get out of the dish). Cover tightly and freeze until set. 

Before serving, drizzle 2 tsps. lite chocolate syrup over entire pie.

Serves 8 - each serving = 2 WW points  (in their older program anyway - using the nonfat frozen yogurt)
