Play With Your Food #2: Trivial Pursuit (No-Bake) Pie


Trivial Pursuit Pie

Yes, this post reveals that my husband and I are Trivial Pursuit geeks. We love the old school version that is really, really hard. Every time we win a pie we high five each other and gloat for days. When he challenged me to make him a Trivial Pursuit pie to rival my brownie/blondie checkerboard I couldn’t say no. I tried to think of the best way to do it and decided to make decorative wedges the color of the pieces on top of a no-bake cheesecake, just like the way they are nestled into the pie piece holder in the game. He got a big kick out of me meeting his challenge and I’m glad he did, because now I have to get back to my daughter’s Candyland dessert. That one is coming up next!

Trivial Pursuit Pie

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

8 ounces Cool Whip

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Graham Cracker Crust or Chocolate Cookie Crust

6 Different Sanding Sugars

1. Whip together the cream cheese, Cool Whip, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy.  Smooth it into the pie crust and etch the outline of 6 even sized wedges on the top. Fill each one with different sanding sugars. The actual game pies are blue, orange, yellow, pink, green and brown. Do your best to stay true to these colors.

2. Refrigerate the pie for 4 hours, or until firm!
