Gooey Chocolate-Caramel Fantasy

Gooey Chocolate Caramel Fantasy ~ This dessert is highly addictive ~ extra gooey delicious ! #CaramelPie #Dessert

Have I got a treat for you today! Caramel is of course one of my weaknesses, anything caramel .. pair that with a delicious crust and a ganache drizzle and you have a winner.

I found a recipe on BHG which looked delicious, but again we do not have some of the ingredients available, or if we have, I am yet to find it.

After a bit of brainstorming, I worked out a version better suited to what I have available and feel comfortable cooking/baking with.  I decided to keep the name the same and if you would like to have a look at the BHG original recipe go HERE.



Gooey Chocolate-Caramel Fantasy

200g Chocolate Wafers {the sandwiched type}, crushed finely
1/3 cup Butter, melted
1 can (397g) Caramel Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Fresh Cream, divided  {whipping cream/double cream}
1 TB Corn Flour
1/2 cup Pecan Nuts, chopped
3/4 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate pieces
Pecan Nuts, to decorate {optional}

1.) Combine the crushed Wafers and the Butter - press firmly into a 20cm (8 inch) pie pan bottom {I used a silicone dish} - place in the refrigerator to harden.
2.) Meanwhile heat the Caramel Condensed Milk in a medium pot - stir continuously until it just start to bubble, remove from heat and add 1/4 {keep 1 TB aside} cup Fresh Cream, stir through and place back on stove over medium heat - mix the 2 TB fresh Cream with the Corn Flour - add to the Caramel mixture, simmer another minute or two - remove from heat, stir in the chopped Pecan Nuts and let cool completely.
3.) Once the crust has hardened, remove from the pie pan and transfer to a serving dish - spread the Caramel mixture over the crust.
4.) Melt the Semi-Sweet Chocolate pieces - stir in the remaining 1/4 cup Fresh Cream - drizzle over the Caramel.

Decorate with Pecan Nuts {if using}.

This is a flattish pie, no higher than 2 1/2 cm (1 inch), but make no mistake, a small slice is more than enough to take away any sweet craving you might have.  {I am not saying you will not go back for a second helping, though!}
