The creamy, sweet chocolate is enhanced by the thick caramel and crunchy salt. This dessert recipe is a must for any sweet tooth or chocolate fanatic.
Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pie
- Prep Time:10 minutes
- Cook Time:1 hour 10 minutes
- Total Time:1 hour 20 minutes
- 1 package (about 36) whole Oreos
- 1 cup butter, divided
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
- 12 oz dark chocolate chips
Finely crush the Oreos with a food processor or blender. Stir crumbs together with 8 tablespoons melted butter until well combined.
Press into the bottom and sides of a pie pan. Freeze crust for 10 minutes until set.
Combine remaining 8 tablespoons butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture begins to bubble. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, for 1 minute.
Remove from heat. Slowly which in 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream until smooth. Cool caramel about 15 minutes. Pour the caramel over the Oreo crust, then return to freezer for about 30-45 minutes until just chilled and set. (You don’t want the caramel to fully freeze.)
Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup heavy whipping cream to a simmer over medium-high heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate over the caramel and freeze for a final 30 minutes, until just chilled and set. OR refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
