Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie

This pie only has five ingredients.  Very rich and delicious!  

1 pkg (about 36) whole Oreo cookies
1 cup (16 TBS) butter, divided
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided 
1 (12 oz) bag 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 or a 10" tart 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 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.)

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.
Store covered in the refrigerator and serve chilled.

Makes: 8-12 servings.
