Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie

The title of this one is pretty much a list of things that are good on their own anyway, but combine them and you’ve really got something.

This recipe is adapted from one on Kevin & Amanda’s blog that was sent to me as a very subtle hint ahead of a friend coming over for dinner.

The good news is that it’s easy to make — just a few ingredients put together in three main stages — crust, caramel and ganache.

The result is decadently rich with a crumbly crust, gooey caramel and smooth ganache, sure to please even the sweetest tooth!

Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie

Ingredients 

  • 36 Oreos (about 3 small packs or 1 large) 
  • 1 cup (225g) butter, divided 
  • 23 packed cup (approx 145g) brown sugar 
  • 1–1/4 cup (300ml) double cream, divided 
  • 340g dark chocolate chips 
  • Coarse sea salt, to decorate 
  • Vanilla buttercream, to decorate (optional)

Instructions

  1. Crush the Oreos into crumbs. It’s easiest to use a food processor but you can do it the old-school way too. 
  2. Melt half the butter and combine with the Oreo crumbs. 
  3. Press the Oreo mixture into a 25cm pie dish and put in the freezer for 10 minutes to set. 
  4. Melt the rest of the butter and stir in the sugar. Stir continuously until the mixture starts to bubble. 
  5. Cook for another minute then take off the heat. 
  6. Slowly combine 14 cup (60ml) cream and mix until smooth. 
  7. Cool caramel for 15 minutes, then pour into the pie crust. Put in freezer for 30–45 minutes until the caramel is set. 
  8. Bring the remaining cream to a simmer over a medium heat. 
  9. Pour cream over chocolate in a mixing bowl and leave for 5 minutes, then stir until smooth. 
  10. Pour ganache over caramel and refrigerate or freeze until set (depending on how long you think you can wait!). 
  11. Before serving, sprinkle over some salt — personally I don’t like too much salt in my salted caramel stuff but it’s up to you. I also added a decoration of vanilla buttercream for the colour contrast and because I can’t get enough vanilla 🙂
