Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie

Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie

I have been meaning to make this Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie weeks ago already, but every day, either I plain forgot about it and made something else for dessert, or soon as I started getting the ingredients ready ... bam ! no milk or cream. Well, I finally made it, otherwise it might have been months until I next have a chance and I will tell you why...

Not sure whether I shared this little tidbit on the blog yet, but I am on my way to Australia soon - depending on my visa ! - to visit my brother and his family in Brisbane for a few months. Yep, a whole 3 months and I am getting quite excited as I have not seen my brother {younger than me and only sibling} in 7 years, my sister-in-law and one niece not since around the early 2000's and get this !! I am to meet my other niece for the very first time !

I am really looking forward sooo much to spend time with all of them, do some catching up, and most of all, getting to know my only 2 blood related nieces.

Oh, and I am planning on meeting up with some Australian blogging friends as well, which I think will be just awesome as I have known some of them since I started blogging in 2012, become friends with, that is online friends, and will now get the chance to meet them in real life !  {lots of exclamation marks in this post, but I am sure you understand, right ?! }

Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie

Getting back to the recipe for today, the Caramel layer is a recipe with only 3 ingredients and I must have used it dozens of times already in other desserts I have shared on the blog. I will leave you some links to check out at the end of this post.

The crust is a simple, yet always welcome and very popular, Oreo cookie crust, topped with the Caramel layer, followed by a Pudding layer - I had Butterscotch in the pantry nearing it's expiry date and used that {you can use Chocolate, Vanilla or whatever will go well with the Caramel} - and to top it all, a lightly sweetened whipped cream with a handful of Chocolate covered Toffees - again, you can decorate the Caramel Pie as you wish.

Using less Milk than the quantity stated on the Pudding box, gives you not only a firmer, better to slice layer, but also a little stronger flavor.  I used a 4 serving sized box with just over half the Milk stipulated on the box.


Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie



8 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

16 Oreo Cookies, crushed
1/3 cup Butter, melted

1 can (397g) Sweetened Condensed Milk    {I only use Nestle}
2 TB Butter, cubed
1/3 cup Golden Syrup   {or Treacle Syrup}

1 box Instant Butterscotch Pudding
1 1/2 cups Milk

1 cup Fresh Cream     {whipping cream}
1/4 cup Icing Sugar

Chocolate coated Toffee Balls   {optional}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Combine the crushed Oreos and the melted Butter - press onto the bottom and the sides of a 20cm pie dish - chill until needed.
2.) Bring to the boil in a medium saucepan - the Condensed Milk, Butter and Syrup - stir over medium heat until the mixture has changed to a light caramel color - remove from heat and let cool.
3.) Once the Caramel has cooled, spoon into the Oreo crust and refrigerate at least one hour.
4.) Combine the Instant Pudding with the Milk - pour over the Caramel - chill until set.
5.) Beat the Cream until stiff peaks form - add the Icing Sugar and beat another minute - scoop over the Pudding and decorate with Chocolate coated Toffee Balls {if using}

Slice into servings using a sharp knife.
