Ingredients for Crust

  • 1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Ingredients for Fudge Layer

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 4 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups of ½-inch pieces of OCHO Organic Chocolate Caramel & Peanut Bars (about 8.5 oz.)

Cream Cheese Layer Ingredients

  • 10 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream

Directions:

Crust: Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Butter 9-inch-diameter deep-dish glass pie dish. Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in medium bowl. Add melted butter and stir until well incorporated. Press graham mixture evenly into bottom and up sides of prepared dish. Bake until crust is set, about 5 minutes. Cool on rack. Maintain oven temperature.

Fudge Layer: Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. Combine butter, semisweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate in top of double boiler set over simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from over water and cool slightly. Using electric mixer, beat sugar, egg and egg yolk in medium bowl until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Add vanilla and cooled chocolate mixture and mix until well blended. Add dry ingredients and mix just until combined.

Pour fudge mixture into crust. Bake until almost set and tester inserted into center comes out with most batter still attached, covering crust with foil if browning too quickly, about 17 minutes. Cool on rack 10 minutes. Arrange ogOCHO Caramel & Peanut pieces evenly over fudge layer.

Cream Cheese Layer: Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar in medium bowl until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat just until smooth. Carefully spread mixture in pie. Bake until cream cheese layer is set, about 15 minutes. Cool pie on rack.

Stir milk chocolate and cream in top of double boiler set over simmering water just until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Dip spoon into melted milk chocolate mixture and drizzle chocolate decoratively over top of pie. Refrigerate until well chilled.

(Can be prepared 3 days ahead. Cover loosely with foil and refrigerate.) Serve cold.
