Mounds Bar Pie

If you like mounds candy bars as much as I do, than this pie is for you.

The first time I tasted this pie it reminded me of a giant mounds bar. It is so rich and creamy and very good.

The original title for this pie was Crisp Coconut and Chocolate Pie, but it reminds me so much of a mounds bar that we call it mounds bar pie.

And this pie is perfect for those of you afraid of tackling a regular pie crust. The coconut in this is the crust, which makes it a very quick and easy pie crust to make.

    I cannot wait to make this pie. Love Mounds. It sounds heavenly.
    Thanks for posting.

  2. Lynn, this looks like an amazing recipe! I bet I could even make it dairy free using coconut oil, coconut milk, and dairy-free chocolate chips. Trying to think of a good excuse to make this today … it might just be that I’ve been walking every day this week and rain is moving in. 😉 LOL

    This looks really good, could I substitute yogurt for the cream? I also like the previous comment with the use of coconut milk. I’m not looking for dairy free just an alternative for cream.

  4. Yippee!! I have all (4!) ingredients. I love that it’s not complicated and only requires 4 ingredients…and it’s naturally gluten-free 🙂 You may have just made my weekend…Mounds are my all time fav candy…I’m in heaven! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. Lynn, you are NOT GOOD for my waistline!!!! But I still love you for it! 🙂

  6. Wow, looks delicious!

  7. Wow! I almost deleted it before reading this recipe, because I figured it would inclue grains. Still, I was compelled to open it and was delighted to see my favorite ingredients of butter, coconut, cream and chocolate. I can’t wait to make this!

  8. Oh boy, Lynn…hope you’re here! I have just made the crust and I’m not sure if I over-measured the coconut or what, but my coconut crust almost completely fills the pan! Will it shrink during baking? At this rate, I’m not sure I’ll be able to get any chocolate in it! Help!

    • @chris, Chris I am sorry I have been gone all day. I hope you got the crust figured out. If I would have seen this earlier I would have said to make sure to press it into the pie plate. And if it still too thick you could have just use less crust or a bigger pie plate. I am not sure why you ended up with your crust being so thick. I hope it worked out for you.

  9. We loved this! I added almonds though for an almond joy pie and I would definitely do it again!

    • @Heidi, I am so glad you enjoyed the pie. I think the almonds is a great addition. I thought of the same thing, but since my daughter can not have tree nuts we have not tried it. I am glad to know it is good that way.
