Even though it was only 9 am, I am still a fan of dessert, especially chocolate. I threw together these chocolate bars the night before. They taste best straight from the fridge.
1 pkg (about 36) Oreos (I used the ones from Trader Joes)
2 sticks butter, divided
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
6 oz or 1/2 bag bittersweet chocolate chips (I had semi-sweet and just used these)
flaked sea salt
Using a food processor pulverize your Oreo cookies until they are crumbs. Into the top of the food processor pour 1 melted stick of butter (8 tablespoons). Press into the bottom of your pan (I used a square brownie pan).
Put the pan in the freezer while you make the caramel sauce. Add last stick of butter to a saucepan with the brown sugar. Melt them together and let them boil vigorously for a minute. Turn off the heat and add ¼ cup of heavy cream and whisk it together. Pour the caramel onto the frozen pie crust and tilt the pan to cover the crust
In a microwave safe bowl add your chocolate chips and a half a cup of whipping cream. Microwave for one minute. Let sit for 3 minutes undisturbed then mix until smooth. Pour over the caramel sauce and spread with a spatula. Sprinkle the top with flaked sea salt. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve, cut into small squares (they are rich).
