Samoas Bomb Pie in-a-jar

I’ve been really, really excited to try this recipe.
I’m in love with making “Bomb” pies.
I’ll give you a little back story, just for the hey of it:
Back in the day (and I mean when we could afford TV, pre-cross-country-move and pre-baby), my husband and I watched a lot of Food Network.
We loved that show, “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” where the celebs talk about their favorite foods.
Guy’s favorite “Guilty Pleasure” was this piece of pie called “The Baltimore Bomb Pie.”
It’s pretty awesome– you can see my version of the recipe here.
Since my first Bomb Pie, I’ve also done a pumpkin  bomb pie, and now a Samoas Bomb Pie.
Today’s recipe is a little more unique than the others–
because I ran out of ingredients!
As you can imagine, I’m running a little short on Samoas at the end of this week.
So instead of making a full pie, I made an individual portion in a jar.
Which is still pretty awesome, right?
I think this is one of the ultimate comfort foods– warm, ooey-gooey… plus that certain intangible quality that just makes you breathe a sigh of relief at the end of your day.
mmmmm. Thank goodness for “bomb” pie.
(I’m providing a recipe for the full pie as well as the individual serving)

  1. I’ve never had a bomb pie before, but I’ve not met too many pies I didn’t like ;) This looks amazing!

  2. I don’t know what it is about things baked in jars, but I love them! So much more appealing than in a common cake/pie tin, I think. Easy-to-follow recipe – will bookmark for future use!

  3. I always pass up the Samoas and go straight for the Thin Mints but I think this week’s recipes might change my mind. :)
