Chocolate Caramel Pie

I have a feeling that this would turn out better in a different kind of pie plate, but oh my goodness, it is so delicious! I got the recipe from here and they had simple directions, my favorite kind!
What you need is:
•bag of Oreos (36 cookies)
•1 cup butter
•2/3 cup brown sugar
•1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
•12 oz bag of dark chocolate morsels (I used Hershey’s)

The crust is made by mashing up the Oreos and mixing the smashed cookies with 8 tbsp of butter.
We smashed them with a wooden spoon before putting them in the Magic Bullet

Chiara loved smashing the cookies!
Once your mashed up cookies are well combined with the butter, press the mixture into your pie plate, original blogger used a 2″ torte dish and hers was much prettier than mine! My crust was also a little mushy because a certain little girl kept stealing my Oreos! Once your crust is pressed, put it in your freezer for 10 minutes so it can set.

Ready for the filling!
For your caramel filling you combine the brown sugar and 8 tbsp of butter over medium heat, whisking until it’s well combined and boiling. Continue whisking your boiling mixture for about a minute then remove from heat. Whisk in 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream and ensure the mixture is smooth.
Let your caramel cool about 15 minutes before pouring into your crust. Put it back in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to let it set, but not freeze completely.

Caramel ready to set.
Last step is to make your chocolate topping. Bring your remaining 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to a simmer then pour over your chocolate morsels. Let them sit for a few minutes and then go to town whisking until it is a smooth mixture. Pour over top of your caramel and return to freezer to set yet again.
As I made my pie the night before, I placed mine in the refrigerator overnight and it was perfect the next day.
When your ready to eat, sprinkle some sea salt over the pie for a nice little kick.

As I said, my crust was a little mushy, so the pie didn’t slice that well, but as previously stated, super delicious!
Happy dining all!
