We love caramel. We love chocolate. We love them together! Whenever we are out shopping and happen upon those handmade yummy caramels, we buy them and can’t wait to enjoy the buttery, sweet, silky bite of heaven.

So why not make a pie?

We made mini pies to start, but really, it is too much dessert.  That’s hard to imagine, but it’s true.  Whenever we are experimenting, one of us takes the extras to work to share.  This time, instead of leaving them on the staff room table for everyone, my closest co-workers (you know who you are) took the extras all for themselves, to savor over the next few days.  The sign of a winning treat. 🙂

We started with our signature graham cracker crust with a hint of cinnamon, baked just for 6 mins. or so.

Next comes the best part-the caramel.  We did make this more than once due to the well-known, simple fact that if you look away for even 5 seconds, it will burn and you must start over.  Oh well.  

After the pies set up in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, add the chocolate ganache to the top and sprinkle a little Fleur del sel for that wonderful contrast in taste.

The only change will be to make them bite size.

What to name this bit of  decadence? Suggestions welcome.

Look for them on our menu soon!

Sweet treats to you!
