Mom's Recipe Book: Heath Bar Pie

Time for a dessert I grew up with.  It's easy...and awesome.  (To see the history of Mom's Recipe Book, and other entries in the series, click here.)

Heath Bar Pie
2 prepared chocolate crusts (sold with graham cracker crusts)
6 frozen Heath bars, or 1/2 package Heath English Toffee Bits (sold with chocolate chips)
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

If using Heath bars, crush them.  Soften ice cream and mix with candy.  Put in crusts and let stand in freezer several hours or overnight.  Top with Chocolate Sauce (recipe below)--or use storebought sauce.

Chocolate Sauce
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1 small can evaporated milk
1 cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet, depending what flavor you want)
2 tsp. vanilla

Melt butter and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.  Add sugar and milk.  Cook about eight minutes until thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

This sounds oh so very yummy . . . You are a woman after my own heart. Sadly, my own weight loss goal (lose 52 pounds in 2009, and I've lost 32 so far) will prevent me from trying it out just yet, but I will put this in my recipes-to-try folder.

Can't wait to try it! Is this one of the recipes I picked out on Thanksgiving?

Do you hear that sound? That is the sound of my thighs widening.

@Anna L: Way to go! Keep the faith ... one pound at a time!

Anna L.--Good for you, being self-controlled! :) This would be a good one to bring to a potluck--then it's not sitting there in your freezer just begging you to eat half of it!

Laurel--It might be. The post-it notes I used to mark the ones you wanted, were removed (by Chickie, if I remember correctly....) But I think you picked out this one!

Crazy Mo--Yeah, it's not exactly a healthy recipe...but good for an occasional indulgence!
