How to make a candy pie with Halloween candy

Oct 12, 2015 at 9:39 p.m. ET

My kids love cookies, pie and candy. I know most kids love candy and cookies — so do adults — but my kids prefer pie over cake. With my daughter's special birthday happening soon, I thought I would make a candy dream pie.

The pie uses a pre-made graham cracker crust, pre-made cookie dough, Reese's, Twix bars and peanut and plain M&M'S, so it's a candy-lover's dream. She is in college, and I thought this pie could travel easily and be shared with friends. It doesn't take much time to put together or bake, so if you need a delicious candy cookie pie, this one is perfect. You can even use your leftover Halloween candy to make it.
