Instructions

  • In a food processor, process whole Oreo cookies until they are fine crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine crumbs and melted butter. Mix well to coat cookie crumbs with melted butter.
  • Press crumb mixture up the sides and onto the bottom of a deep dish pie plate; set in the freezer to firm up.
  • In a small bowl, combine the caramel bits and 1/4 cup whipping cream and microwave 1-minute at a time, stirring between sessions until the caramels are completely melted; stir well until smooth.
  • Pour melted caramel mixture into the bottom of the pie, on top of the crust. Return to freezer to set.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat 2 cups of whipping cream until stiff peaks form; set aside.
  • In another large bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla until creamy and well combined.
  • Fold in the whipped cream and stir gently until combined.
  • Fold in 4 chopped Snickers bars until combined.
  • Scoop all of the filling ingredients into the pie plate on top of the caramel. Heap in the center and smooth all around. Return pie to freezer.
  • For the topping, in a medium bowl, combine chocolate chips and 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir. Continue microwaving 30 seconds and stirring until the chocolate is melted and the cream has been incorporated.
  • Place pie on a large baking sheet.
  • Slowly pour chocolate ganache over pie, smoothing to the edges as needed.
  • Garnish with chopped Snickers and peanuts.
  • Return to the freezer until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, set pie on counter at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting.
