Snickers Pie — The Most Unhealthy Recipe Ever Published


It's a dessert so lethal that food experts have issued a health warning on the perils of eating even a slice, which is equivalent to more than half a day's caloric limit for an adult. The Snickers Pie, invented as a treat for children by British celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson, became a favorite after featuring it on his cooking show. The recipe — combining five Snickers bars with mascarpone, eggs, sugar, soft cheese and puff pastry — has earned censure from the Food Commission (Britain’s equivalent of the FDA), which is concerned at the damage it could wreak on the weak-willed. A single slice of the pie contains more than 1,250 calories, the equivalent of 22 teaspoons of fat, and 11 teaspoons of sugar. Worrall Thompson insisted that the recipe had only been intended as a special treat for children and was designed to make them feel they were being "looked after.” Responding to the statement, the Food Commission wrote on their website, "We love a decent dessert as much as anyone, but surely this has to be one of the most unhealthy recipes ever published!”
