This Hershey Bar Pie is a favorite at our house. I make it for the first day of school and I make it for the last day of school and lots of other times in between. I often make it for Easter this year. My boys request it for their birthday instead of cake. My kids know I don’t make promises I can’t keep but if you’re a s’mores fan, I promise you’ll love this pie.
Hershey bar pie is a recipe I got from a colleague many years ago. There really couldn’t be an easier pie to make. The recipe doesn’t call for decorating it with the whipped cream but I thought it needed something extra.
There are a few things to note, the first being, don’t buy store brand marshmallows. Use only the Jet Puffed brand. The others, for some reason, do not melt as well as the brand. By regular size Hershey bars, I mean the size like you buy in the supermarket checkout aisle. They also come in a package of six, which is just the amount you need for this recipe. Don’t rush the cooling process.
I’ve made this pie the day before serving it, as well as the morning of the day I want to serve it. The Hershey website offers a version of this pie but it is different and probably not as chocoaltey since it uses only 1 candy bar. I’ll stick with this one! It’s a keeper!
