This Chili’s High and Mighty Pie Food Hack Might Be Better Than Cake

August 28, 2018

Chili’s has become one of those popular restaurants you just can’t seem to quit. It’s an import juggernaut, and is still beloved by citizens years after it first entered Manila. There’s just something about its Tex-Mex food (and interiors) that are just so darn charming, which make the chain well-loved.

It could also be that aside from their roster of fajitas, and burgers, the High and Mighty Pie exists on its menu. The classic frozen treat is a deliriously sweet concoction of Heath bars embedded into a white dome of vanilla ice cream, with a crunchy bottom that makes it a sinful play of textures. We’ve tried our best to recreate that experience here, although the height is lacking. Use the tallest pan you can find, and let us know how “hacckurate” we are!
