Sweet and Salty Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pecan Pie


Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pecan Pie

  • 1 package (36 cookies) whole Oreo cookies

  • 18 Tbsp salted butter, divided

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • ⅓ tsp kosher salt

  • 1 ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream, divided

  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

  • 1 (12 oz) bag dark chocolate chips

  • Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling


Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pecan Pie

  1. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Place the Oreos in a food processor and crush to fine crumbs. Place in a medium bowl and stir in 8 tablespoons of melted butter until the crumbs are evenly coated. Press into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie pan. Freeze the crust for at least 10 minutes while you make the filling.

  3. Combine the remaining 10 tablespoons of butter with the brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to bubble. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, for 1 minute, and then remove the pan from the heat. Slowly whisk in ⅓ cup of the heavy whipping cream until smooth. Then stir in ⅓ teaspoon of salt, followed by the pecans. Allow the caramel to cool for about 15 minutes. Then pour the caramel over the chilled crust. Freeze for 30-45 minutes until just chilled and set.

  4. Heat the remaining 1 cup of heavy whipping cream until simmering. (You can do this either on the stove or in the microwave.) Pour the cream over the chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Cover the bowl and let sit untouched for 5 minutes. Then whisk the chocolate until smooth. Pour the ganache over the caramel layer, and freeze for another 30 minutes until just chilled and set. When ready to serve, sprinkle the top of the pie with coarse sea salt.

Although America’s favorite cookie is delicious on its own or dipped in milk, Oreos are exponentially better when added to recipes to create outrageously delicious confections. Check out Barth Bakery’s collection of recipes crafted with Oreo cookies.

I can tell you first hand that this was the BEST dessert I have EVER tasted. Jen made this for me for a "special occasion" and let me tell you, AMAZING !!. Luckily, there was enough left over that I enjoyed it a few more times ( with vanilla ice cream on top)... If you make any of the goodies above, do yourself a favor and try this one, you will NOT be disappointed.
