Snickers Pie

1 stick butter, cut up
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
13 fun-size Snickers
garnish: additional cut up Snickers and chopped peanuts

Spray a 9 inch glass pie plate with nonstick spray.

Melt butter and brown sugar in large saucepan over medium heat until it starts to bubble. Remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes.

Into mixture, stir in 1 egg and the vanilla until blended. Stir in flour and baking powder until smooth.

Put 3/4 cup of mixture into prepared pie plate. Don't try to spread it now. Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Stir melted chips, the remaining egg, and the cocoa powder into the remaining batter.

Take pie plate from freezer and press chilled batter evenly over bottom and halfway up sides of pie plate. Top with the 13 whole Snickers. Pour chocolate batter evenly over the top.

Bake for 24 to 27 minutes. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips in middle. Let stand 5 minutes until chips become soft, then spread to near the blond crust. Top with garnishes.

Let cool before cutting.
