Caramel Chocolate Pie Recipe

Chocolate pie is one of my favorite desserts, especially during the fall and winter months. my family craves comfort foods and this caramel chocolate pie is satisfying.

When you serve this pie to your family and friends they will scrape the side of the plate with their fork and when they finish they will feel comforted. It is very chocolaty and the nuts make it taste delicious.

Here is the chocolate pie recipe

You will need the following ingredients

  • Store bought ready-made chocolate cookie crumb crust
  • 30 vanilla caramels
  • ½ cup caramel ice cream
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups chopped unsalted peanuts or pecans
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate morsels ( I like Ghirardelli)
  • ¼ whipping cream

Optional: vanilla ice cream for topping

  1. Turn on the stove to low heat and melt caramels with the caramel ice cream in a saucepan. Keep stirring, then add ¼ cup whipping cream, stir to blend all ingredients.
  2. Remove saucepan from the heat
  3. Add nuts to pie filling and stir
  4. Add pie filling to the 9-inch pie plate
  5. Spread the filling over the crust
  6. Let the pie set until it is cool, then cover with saran wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  7. Make the topping for this pie by melting the semisweet chocolate morsels in a saucepan over low heat. When chocolate is melted stir in the remaining whipped cream.
