Candy Bar Pie

A few weeks ago, my daughters and I made 30 pies for a school bake sale. Ingredients had been donated in abundance. After using much of what was donated, I still had a considerable amount left over. I used some of the ingredients to create a pie with things I love: caramel and chocolate. The result was Candy Bar Pie.


To recreate this delectable and delightful dessert, you will need:
1 Oreo pie crust
1 can of Dulce de Leche (caramel), divided
3/4 c semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 1/2 blocks (12 oz.) of cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk, divided
8 oz whipped cream
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 c toffee bits

Follow these directions:
1. Freeze the Oreo crust for 15 minutes to make spreading the caramel easier.


2. Spoon out half of the Dulce de Leche onto Oreo crust and spread evenly. Sprinkle the caramel with 1/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips.

3. Whip softened cream cheese with vanilla and 2 tablespoons of milk until smooth. Blend in whipped cream.
4. Heat 1 tablespoon of milk in a microwave safe dish for 20 seconds. Stir in 1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the chocolate to the cream cheese mixture along with the cocoa powder. Blend.
5. Spread chocolate cream evenly over the caramel and chips.

6. Heat remaining caramel and drizzle over chocolate cream. Using a toothpick, drag caramel around the top of pie to spread and make decorative swirls. Sprinkle with toffee bits.


Grab a fork and take a bite!

I originally made this pie with a shortbread crust, but changed it to an Oreo crust for more chocolate. The first time the pie was just as delicious. Use what you have on hand and make this pie your own!

    Where do you buy the dulce de leche at ? I checked at Walmart and could not find it. Is there a different place to look at other than where the pie crust and sugar is?

    1. It is getting harder to find. Mostly I find it in our local groceries' international food aisle with Hispanic or Latino foods. If you have a Food Lion, they always seem to have it {but never with the baking stuff}.

      Another option is an Asian market. I love shopping at ours {either Lotte or H-Mart}, and they carry it with Hispanic items.

      If all else fails, you can make your own using sweetened condensed milk. Here's a link to an easy slow cooker method~ http://taylortakesataste.com/dulce-de-leche-so-easy-to-make-and-so-many-useses/

      Hope one of these works. This pie is devilishly delicious!
