More About This Recipe
Pi Day is coming up, so we're raising our forks to pies of all kinds, like this irresistible Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie.
Pi Day is March 14th (get it? 3/14 ... as in 3.14, the Greek mathematical constant pi). Pi stands for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.
If all you heard was blah, blah, blah … just know that a pie is a circle, so you can eat as much pie as you want on this day and no one will judge you! And this Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie is definitely worthy of Pi Day.
We start off by making the crust out of these Nature Valley Dark Chocolate Granola Thins.
These little squares of granola are coated in a silky smooth dark chocolate on one side. They just happen to make an unbelievable crust for any pie.
Just place the granola thins and butter in a food processor or blender and process them until they are fine crumbs and the consistency of wet sand. Press it into a pie plate to make your crust.
It seems like we’re salting everything these days. But there’s a reason; something about the salt cuts the sweetness of the dish and tells our brain this is gooood! I added a little sea salt to some caramel and placed a generous layer on the bottom of the pie, making sure to stay away from the edges.
Pour a rich chocolate layer on top and freeze until ready to serve. Look at this beautiful caramel peeking through the bottom of this pie.
Serve with some fresh whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel, and if you live dangerously...an extra sprinkle of sea salt. It’s sweet, it’s salty, and it’s everything you could want in a pie ... on Pi Day or any day!
