NuTeLLa Heath Bar Pie

Nutella Heath Bar Pie

Rich and creamy Nutella is good on or in any recipe!  So I tried it in a pie :)

What Ya Need:

1.5 Cups chocolate and vanilla
      cookies, crushed
3 Tbsp butter melted
1 Carton whipped topping
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Package cream cheese (softened)
2 Toffee chocolate bars
1/4 Tsp. Vanilla flavoring
3 Tbsp of caramel ice cream
    topping (optional)

What Ya Do:

Start with the crust.  I used a tart pan, but you could also make this pie into squares with a regular square 9X9 or 8X11 pan.  If using a glass or metal pan, I would spray with not stick spray or rub it with a bit of butter.  Preheat oven to 350.  Mix the crushed cookies with melted butter and press into the bottom of the pan.  Bake for 8 minutes.  When the crust is finished, it will need to be cooled, so you can wait until it comes out of the oven before mixing the filling. 

For the filling:  Beat together the cream cheese and sugar until it is combined.  Add the Nutella and vanilla and beat until combined.  Now incorporate the whipped topping on low speed for a short amount of time... just enough to make sure it's mixed.  If you whip the whipped topping too long or too harshly,  it will break down.  When the mixture is smooth and creamy... pour into your cooled crust.  Smooth with a spoon. 

To decorate:  chop the toffee chocolate bars into various pieces and sprinkle over the top.  I also added caramel ice cream topping, but that is optional.  This does have a rich, cream cheese taste, so if you don't like that, you could add more vanilla or a bit less cream cheese.
