Fruit Loop Pie!!!

Posted on

Don’t wrinkle your nose at the name- this tart cream filling is perfectly balanced by a sweet fruity crust. Let your inner child rejoice– its FRUIT LOOPS in a PIE!!!!

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

  • 3c. of crushed Fruit Loops (crush before you measure)
  • 1/2c. butter (melted)
  • 1/2c. sugar

Pie:

  • 8oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 (0.22 oz.) packet Kool Aid- Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavor
  • 2c. marshmallow fluff
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip (refrigerator temp).

DIRECTIONS:

  • Mix together Fruit Loops, butter and sugar.
  • Press mixture into an ungreased 9 inch pie plate.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Cool completely.
  • Cream together Kool Aid and Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • Add Marshmallow fluff and blend well.
  • Fold in 1c. of Cool Whip.
  • Spoon into cooled crust
  • Top with remaining Cool Whip
  • Sprinkle Fruit Loops over the top
  • Freeze for at least 2 hours.
  • Serve chilled.

My thoughts:  This recipe has been simmering in the back of my mind ever since I made my raspberry lemonade truffles for RWOP a few weeks ago.  Adding Kool Aid to Cream Cheese…using fun cereal as a crust…finally I just did it.  It won’t qualify for the contest as it really needs some time in the freezer to set properly– NOT within the one hour time limit!  What a fun and refreshing dessert this turned out to be– I hope you try it and love it!!  -r

  8. What did I do wrong? =( Used the exact measurements you used for my crust and it turned into a mush when I baked it. It formed to the pie pan and was firmly packed but turned into mush when I baked.

    • I think I can tell you EXACTLY what happened, because the same thing happened to me when I thought it would be smart to grease the pan before I pressed the crust in one time. It did exactly what you just described- slid to the bottom and turned to mush. So maybe that was what happened for you? I hope this helps!

  9. i had the same problem and then my dad told me to crush the fruit loops first and THEN measure our 3 cups. I did it the other way around and that is where I went wrong.

    • Smart dad!!! I will change the directions in the recipe a little to make that part clear– thanks for figuring that out and sharing it with me- I’m so glad it finally worked out for you!!

  14. I made this pie last night, hands down my favorite dessert I’ve ever made! I think Fruity Pebbles could be substituted for Fruit Loops, will try it next time!

  16. Wow, I’m two years late to the party, but this. is. fabulous! Someone in my life has a birthday coming up soon, and they will be delighted with this – they’re really into the whole 1950s-ish no-bake concoctions that sound horrifying but taste delicious. Thank you!

      • Total success! Gone in under a day and a half, actually, and I only accounted for one piece. I made this for my husband’s birthday, and he LOVED it – inhaled practically the whole thing, like I said. :) The Kool-Aid you called for apparently doesn’t exist in my neck of the world, so I substituted grape, which worked out super well (but bummer, because the world doesn’t have enough blue food!) Thank you for this great recipe – so fun and a super tasty crowd-pleaser/scarer, too!
