No-Bake BUTTERFINGER® Cream Pie
Can you already feel the hustle and bustle of the holiday season? Stores are already decorated and holiday music is already filling the airways. We are officially in the holiday season folks and that means the next few weeks are gonna be a ton of fun! I love the Thanksgiving and Christmas so much that I will actually be decorating soon..as in a few days. I just love the lights, and the season that brings families together.
As if you do not already know, food is the way to most people’s hearts…or maybe that is just my family? Anyhow, now is the time of year where you can find me baking up a storm. My kitchen is half way through the remodeling stage and it feels good to finally step on even terrain verses half wood and half linoleum, but there still is the whole electricity issue. I have about 101 recipes I want to bake but my stove is not exactly connected at the moment.
Ever hear of that saying, “where there is a will, there is a way” well that is my motto. I wont let a lack of flowing electricity through my kitchen stop me from creating holiday treats like my No-Bake BUTTERFINGER® Cream Pie this is the perfect complement to the STOUFFER’S® Family Size Entrees Lasagna I prepared for dinner. I just love those family-size lasagnas because they can be made partially in the microwave and a toaster or conventional oven. Since my stove was not hooked up I was able to use the later methods, and it worked out beautifully. I had a no-bake pie, and a hearty meal for my family in such a small amount of time!
Since time will be limited during the busy holiday season, I thought sharing a No-Bake BUTTERFINGER® Cream Pie would be a great idea! It can be made ahead of time, and with short cut ingredients like BUTTERFINGER® Bits which can be found in the baking isle at your local Walmart store. The STOUFFER’S® Family Size Entrees Lasagna can also be found at Walmart right in the frozen meals section. Both are priced right and perfect solutions for your holiday entertaning or meal/dessert needs.
Want to make this No-Bake BUTTERFINGER® Cream Pie for your Thanksgiving company? I bet you do! Using ingredients like NESTLÉ® BUTTERFINGER® Bits cuts down on prep time because the candy bars are already crushed and ready to go!
