Turtle Pie with Oreo crust

This dessert is super easy to make and would be a big hit for Mother’s Day on Sunday.  I was a little unsure how my homemade carmel would come out, but it was simple (3 ingredients) and only took a few minutes, then ganache on top.

Crust ingredients – 1 regular bag of oreos, 8 tbs butter (melted)

Finely grind oreos in food processor (or place them in a bag and smash them a rolling pin).  Combine with butter.  Press into bottom and up sides is standard size pie plate.  Place on freezer 10 minutes.

Filling ingredients  – 2/3 cup brown sugar, 8 tbs butter, 1/4 cup heavy cream

Cook and stir brown sugar and butter over medium.heat until it boils.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cream.  Let sit at room temperature 15 minutes. Pour into crust. Place in freezer 30 minutes.

Ganache ingredients- 1 bag of chocolate chips (semisweet, milk or dark chocolate) 1 cup heavy cream.

In microwave proof bowl, heat cream for 90 seconds.  (Should be pretty hot).  Add chips.  Let stand 5 minutes. Stir smooth.  Pour on top of carmel layer.  Place in freezer 30 minutes.  Enjoy!   Store covered  in fridge.
