Crust:

Chocolate Ganache

Instructions

Oreo Crust:

  • Spray 9" spring form pan with nonstick spray. 
  • Use a food processor to finely blend Oreos and place in a bowl.
  • Add melted butter and mix until the butter has been combined.
  • Press crust mixture into bottom of spring form pan, going up about 2 inches
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes
  • Cool in fridge for about an hour before adding the filling,

Salted Caramel Filling:

  • Place caramels and 4 tbsp. of whipping cream in a bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until it is smooth. Stir in the 1/4 tsp. salt and spread in the bottom of the pie crust. 

Chocolate Ganache:

  • Place chocolate chips and cream in a bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until it is smooth.
  • Spread over top of the caramel mixture and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. 
  • Refrigerate until set, about 2-3 hours.
  • Slice with a warmed knife and serve. Store in the fridge for up to 5-7 days.

Notes

  1. Use the back of a flat measuring cup or glass to press the Oreo mixture into the spring form pan. This will help even the crust out;
  2. Any kind of crust can be used in place of the Oreo crust;
  3. The pie needs to chill for at least 2-3 hours so it has time to set;
  4. While the spring form pan is not required, I highly recommend it so you can easily release the tart from the pan, which makes it easier to cut and serve;
  5. The sprinkled sea salt flakes on top is optional, but I highly recommend it for the best flavor;
  6. Run a knife under hot water before slicing the tart.
