No Bake Nutella Snickers Pie – an Oreo cookie crust with a creamy Nutella filling, mixed with mini chocolate chips, chopped peanuts, and almonds. Top it with some fresh whipped cream, salted caramel, and chopped Snickers candy bars and you’ve got the best NO BAKE dessert of the summer!
Are you feeling the heat of summer?
I know we certainly are here in Arizona. Right about now, these triple digit temps. get real old.
And I’m sure some of you are saying, “you chose to live there, suck it up, girlfriend”!
Ok, I will. Just for today. Of the many benefits I love about food blogging, meeting my virtual friends in real life. We share recipes, brainstorm, share strategies and help each other out with our blogs online, but when we can do that in person, it’s a very motivating and incredible experience.
One of the many bloggers I’ve come to call a dear friend is Julianne Bayer of the incredible blog, Beyond Frosting. Maybe it’s the fact that she’s originally from New England, or that she loves Snooze, or absolutely loves baking yummy and delicious things as much as I do, but I really feel a connection to this sweet girl. I was finally able to meet her in person at our Blog N’ Bake Retreat back in March.
She was every bit as wonderful as I thought she’d be, talented in the kitchen as she baked some of her favorites for us, and very knowledgeable about all things Beyond Frosting.
If you aren’t already familiar with her blog, I highly encourage you to check it out. You WON’T be disappointed.

So, after meeting Julianne in person you can only imagine how very excited I was for her when she announced to us that she was publishing her very first cookbook! Last month she appeared on QVC for the pre-sale of her cookbook and sold out in less than 5 minutes!!
There are other bloggers who’ve made more NO BAKE recipes from Julianne’s cookbook. Here are a few of them:
No-Bake Butterscotch Pie from Crazy for Crust
Key Lime Ice Cream Loaf from The Gunny Sack
Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Cake from Taste and Tell
No Bake Banana Cream Cheesecake from Shugary Sweets
No-Bake Birthday Cake Lasagna from Wine and Glue
Her cookbook, No Bake Treats: Incredible Unbaked Cheesecakes, Icebox Cakes, Pies and More, IS that good, people!! I highly suggest you purchase yourself a copy and one for all of your loved ones. They’ll make some great Christmas and Mother’s Day gifts for next year.

- 1 14.5- ounce package Oreos with filling
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 8- ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup salted peanuts chopped
- 1/4 cup almonds chopped
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 1/4 cup salted caramel
- 2/3 cup Snickers candy bars chopped
- Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lightly spraying it with cooking spray. Wipe gently with a paper towel.
- Using a food processor, grind the cookies (filling included) into fine crumbs.
- Melt the butter in a microwavable-safe bowl for about 45 - 60 seconds.
- In a separate medium-size bowl, pour the melted butter into the cookie crumbs and stir until no dry crumbs are left.
- Pour the crumbs into the springform pan and press firmly into the bottom and up the sides to create a thick crust.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese at low speed for 30 seconds with the whisk attachment to eliminate any lumps. Increase the speed to medium and slowly start adding the heavy cream, about 1/4 cup at a time. The idea is to slowly add the heavy whipping cream so that the cream cheese will not be lumpy. It should resemble a liquid consistency.
- Once all the heavy cream has been added, increase the speed to high until the mixture becomes bubbly. Slowly add the powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
- Turn off the mixer and spoon the Nutella into the mixing bowl. Beat the Nutella into the whipped cream slowly at first, and once it starts to mix increase the speed to medium-high and beat for 30 seconds or until stiff peaks form again.
- Fold the mini chocolate chips, and chopped peanuts and almonds into the batter with a spatula.
- Pour the filling into the prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.
- Prepare the whipped cream by placing the mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to chill.
- Pour the heavy whipping cream into the chilled bowl and use an electric mixer to beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until the cream gets bubbly. Slowly add the confectioners' sugar and continue beating on high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Remove the sides of the springform pan. Sprinkle the top of the pie with peanuts and drizzle on all but 2 tablespoons of the salted caramel. Pipe the whipped cream in a large circular motion, creating 10 or so soft peaks of whipped cream near the edge of the pie.
- Chop the Snickers bar into small pieces, placing a small piece on each whipped cream peak, and then pile the remaining Snickers in the middle of the pie.
- Drizzle with the remaining salted caramel.
- *Julianne suggests freezing the pie for 20 to 30 minutes before slicing to ensure a cleaner slice. Also, a clean, sharp knife will cut the pieces best.
Julianne's original recipe calls for 1/2 cup salted peanuts, chopped to be included in the filling. Someone broke into my peanut stash and only left me with 1/4 cup, hence the addition of the almonds.
This No Bake Nutella Snickers Pie…If there’s ONE no-bake dessert that you make this summer, let it be this one. It is so gosh darn delicious with the Oreo crust, creamy Nutella filling, caramel, peanuts, whipped cream…MAN!
Julianne sure knocked it out of the park with this one and I can imagine that every single one of the recipes in her cookbook are just. as. good.
It’s rich, so don’t cut yourself a big slice. You can always go back for seconds. 😉 It serves 10, but for those who will want smaller slices, you can definitely feed more.
If you like this No Bake Nutella Snickers Pie, then you’ll love…
I was gifted a cookbook so I could support Julianne and share it with all of you. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. We both greatly appreciate your support!
