Candy Bar Pie

I tore this recipe out of a Southern Living magazine a long time ago, and for some reason never got around to making it until just now. This will definitely hit the spot if you have a sweet tooth like me....

You will need:
For pretzel crust-
2 cups finely crushed pretzel sticks, 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 3/4 cup melted butter

To make pretzel crust: Stir together all ingredients and press crumb mixture on bottom and up sides of a greased 9 inch pie dish. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

For pie filling you will need:
-3 (2.07 oz) snicker bars (these are the regular sized bars)
-1 1/2 (80z) cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/3 sour cream
-1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
-2 large eggs
-2/3 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
-2 Tbsp whipping cream
-1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts

-Preheat oven to 325. Cut candy bars into 1/4 inch pieces and arrange over bottom of crust.
-Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed until blended.
-Add sour cream, and peanut butter, beating at a low speed until well blended
-Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears
-Spoon cream cheese mixture over candy on crust
-Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes
-Remove to wire rack and let completely cool. Then cover and chill for at least 2 hours
-Microwave chocolate morsels and cream in a bowl on high for 15 second intervals or until melted and smooth. Drizzle over top of cooled pie and sprinkle with peanuts
