I figured it would be a big project so I waited for a weekend to make
the Texas Doodle Pie posted here by Rosie. So if you want to skip all
the blah, blah the recipe is posted at the end.

I took it to work today to share with my co-workers. They were
stopping by my office to tell me how good it was. One lady said by
8:30 am there were only 3 slices left.
I cut it into very, very thin slices because it is so rich.

It's a three layer cake, or actually pie, umm....cake.
There's a graham cracker crust, standard procedure. A dense chocolate
cake layer that's topped with chopped snickers and cream cheese. It's
then baked and topped with a chocolate ganache.

Cake layer ready to mix up and put on graham crust.

Pour it on.

Chopped up snickers top this.

As if that's not enough, look at this.

To top it off.

It doesn't look very appetizing but it sure tastes great.

Definitely a do again.
