What I love most about the 4th of July is that it is a no-fuss kind of holiday. Ok, so the fireworks and parades give it a lot of flare, but for the most part, all you need are good friends, a grill and someone's back yard to make it a successful day. There are no presents to wrap, no costumes to buy and no feast to slave over. It's my kind of holiday!
So when my neighbors put me on dessert duty this year (we're all responsible for one dish), I knew I had to come up with something good and simple!
Behold: Butterfinger Pie. This super indulgent pie is shockingly simple. All you need are 4 ingredients and the ability to pull yourself away from the festivities for 5 minutes to whip it up. Gotta love that!
- 6 Butterfinger candy bars, crushed (save $1 on Nestle)
- 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese
- 1 (12 ounce) carton of cool whip
- 1 graham cracker crust
- Mix butterfingers, cream cheese and cool whip in a bowl
- Put in pie crust
