Turn your favorite candy into a pie with No Bake Butterfinger Pie! This Butterfinger pie is a total crowd pleaser and the perfect sweet treat!
Last year, as I have the past few years, I’ve rummaged through my kids Halloween candy after their bedtime, to find myself a nightly treat. I try to be mindful of their favorites and limit myself on how many Reese’s I take (kids have good taste!), and last year I was horrified to find that neither of them had any Butterfingers! I took my outrage to Instagram and, turned out, there were quite a few other parents who noticed the same thing. I’m not sure what to make of it, but I did go out of my way to buy a big bag of fun size Butterfingers this year, just in case.
I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve done much baking with candy, and that definitely had to be fixed. The end result was actually a no-bake recipe, but this No Bake Butterfinger Pie is one that shouldn’t be missed!
What You’ll Need
I don’t think it’s any surprise that this pie was an absolute hit. I really love the combination of the Oreo crust with the Butterfinger pie filling. The extra but of chocolate flavor from the crust was a delicious complement to the peanut buttery taste of the Butterfingers!
Tips for No Bake Butterfinger Pie Success
Use a 9″ springform pan, if that’s available to you. I love using a springform pan when making no bake pies because I can remove the side of it to make cutting easier. If you don’t have a springform pan, try using a deep pie dish to accommodate the extra filling – or just save any extra that doesn’t fit in a regular pie dish to eat for fun 🙂
Use an electric mixer or stand mixer to beat the filling and use room temperature cream cheese. This will ensure the cream cheese is super creamy and you don’t end up with any lumps.
Let the pie chill for at least 3-4 hours prior to serving. You want the pie filling to set up a bit, especially since the cream cheese was at room temperature. This will make it easier to cut the butterfinger pie into slices.
Tools for Making Butterfinger Pie
Springform Pan – I use a 9″ springform pan in this recipe. I love using springform pans for no bake pies, as the side comes off and it makes it super easy to slice!
Deep Pie Dish – if I don’t use a springform pan, a deep pie dish works well, too
Rubber Spatula – these are great for folding in this Cool Whip and Butterfinger.
Food Processor – a large, 8 cup food processor is great for making the Oreo crust.
Hand Mixer or Stand Mixer – this makes it really easy to get the cream cheese creamy and ensure there aren’t any lumps in the filling.
