You guys, I cannot get over this pie. This is seriously one of the easiest, most impressive desserts ever. I mean, have mercy! Just look at it! It’s the perfect amount of decadence without being too rich or overpowering. And the best part is there are only FIVE ingredients. It’s so easy to make!
There are three layers of decadent lusciousness here: The first is a bliss-inducing dark chocolate ganache, which tastes like the inside of an expensive French truffle. Second, a homemade, fool-proof salted caramel sauce you won’t have to worry about burning. And finally, an extra thick Oreo cookie crust. Because we all know the crust is the best part. Did I mention you only need 5 ingredients to make this? 🙂
1 package (about 36) whole Oreos
1 cup (16 tablespoons) butter, divided
⅔ cup packed brown sugar
1¼ cup heavy whipping cream, divided
1 (12 oz) bag dark chocolate chips
1. 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.
2. 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 whisk in ¼ 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.)
3. 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. Before serving, sprinkle the top with a flaky sea salt like kosher salt or Fleur De Sel.
Easy, fudgy, delicious chocolate power – that is all I need. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It did make it on my list 🙂
