Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie

This dessert is pure decadence and gluttony. And I love every component of it. Plus I got to make my own salted caramel which is always super satisfying!

(Adapted from Kevin & Amanda)

Ingredients:
36 whole oreos
1 cup unsalted butter (16 tablespoons)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cup of whipping cream
12 oz of dark chocolate

Finely crush all the oreos. This is most easily accomplished with a food processor or a blender. Melt half the butter (8 tablespoons). Mix the melted butter in with the crushed oreo crumbs. Then tip them into your pie pan and press them down to the bottom and sides of the pan until a crust is formed. Freeze for 10 minutes.

Combine the remaining butter (8 tablespoons) and brown sugar in a small saucepan and whisk over medium heat. Whicks continuously until the mixture starts to bubble. Then cook for 1 more minute. Then slowly add in 1/4 cup of the whipping cream until smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Then pour the caramel inside the oreo pie shell and return to the freezer for approximately 35 minutes until just chilled and set (you don’t want to freeze the caramel).

Break your chocolate up into chunks and place it in a heatproof bowl. In another sauce pan, bring your remaining 1 cup of whipping cream to boil. Then pour it over your chocolate and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate ganache over the caramel layer and return to the freezer for a final 30 minutes, until again just chilled and set. Before serving, sprinkle the top with flaky sea salt.

  • This has to be my favorite recipe you have posted! All my favorite things in one tasty bite, yum! My favorite desert would have to be red velvet cake with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting!

    • Thank you so much! Although a good red velvet cake is amazing. I bet they are hard to come by in Iceland, right?! xx

      • I haven’t seen to many but they do have some impressive carrot cakes in the bakery here and that is another favorite so it works out 🙂

  • Oh my….this looks so wonderfully decadent. If I could bake, I’d do this but I know it would just be ruined if I attempted it!

    • Ah! Thank you so much- but you have to back yourself too Jade! I’m sure you have lots of untapped baking skills! x

  • STOP IT.

    • If it makes you feel better, I made myself so hungry that I ate my lunch early now the rest of the day is going to drrrraaaagggg! xx

  • Oh hello. My diet doesnt start until next week, so I definitely have some time to drool over this still!

  • Oh nom nom nom!! As a huge chocolate and salted caramel fan, that sounds just delicious!! one of my favorite desserts that I can actually make (and was a work favorite!) was a chocolate raspberry truffle tart. Oh I miss it!!

  • Ala

    This looks immense!!! Chocolatey heaven mmmmm xxx

  • Oh Amanda. You kill me with your recipes they all look so delicious!

  • Now I’m drooling all over my desk…thanks a lot!

  • Now I wish I wasn’t stuck at work so I could run to the supermarket and buy the ingredients for this RIGHT NOW!

    By the way, what is 1 cup of butter in grams? I can cope with cups for everything else but I can never work out how to measure a cup of butter!

    • Sorry, but also thanks! 😉 It’s about 225 g. Luckily I’m to the point where I feel okay using grams and cups. Cups are the go-to in the US, grams are here. At first I was really resistant to grams because I thought cups were so easy, but I’ve been fairly wooed over by my kitchen scales this winter. Will I have to hand in my American passport if I admit that grams might win over cups? xx

      • Thank you 🙂 I can see how cups are easier for liquid/dry ingredients but with solid things like butter I’m like “do I have to cut it into teeny pieces so it actually fills the cup? How does this work?!” Then my brain explodes.

        • HA! No, that makes total sense, on butter wrappers in America cups are marked out in lines on the paper the way grams are here. xx

  • Thank you so much! x

  • Thank you for stopping by! x

  • This just sounds so totally and absolutely amazing! Anything that has salted caramel in it gets my vote. This looks so good that shamefully, I don’t think I’d be able to stop at just one slice 😉

    • It’s impossible to stop at one slice. Although I had to exercise great self-control when making it to not eat the caramel before using it in the recipe xx

  • Oh dear, I may now be required to make this for my husband.

  • This looks insane! Now I know the perfect thing to woo my boyfriend’s chocolate loving family…

  • Decadence is right. This looks amazing!

  • Wow this looks like complete heaven right here! Drooling!

  • Oh. My. God. This looks unreal. My mouth is literally watering right now. I don’t think I could even make this, because I would eat the whole thing.

  • This looks soooo good! I really need some right now!

  • Thank you so much! x

  • It’s almost absurd how good this looks/sounds. You know the system; that knothole in Hampstead Heath is still free. Just leave a slice and walk away. I anticipate having to fight a squirrel or two for it, but it’ll all be worth it in the end.

  • My oh my this looks delicious! Thank you for sharing. Found you on a link up. Excited to read more of your stuff. I’m a new food blogger and love “meeting” others. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect there.

  • Oo, oo, oooo. This looks tasty!

    I can’t think of a favourite fancy dessert like that. I’m a big cheesecake fan but they don’t quite fall into the decadent category… unless it’s an extra fancy one 🙂

  • Miho

    please stop this, i’m already failing at the whole clean-eating january business and this isn’t making it any easier! except please don’t stop. this is seriously incredible. x

    • Hehe, apologies, apologies. And to be fair, this is incredible bad for you- like the opposite of clean eating, but it tastes so right…. 🙂 xx
