4 Crust Chocolate Pie

This pie looks innocuous enough – like perhaps it is a chocolate pie with some pretzels on top.

Maybe from the side view you can detect the layer of Oreo in the middle?  You probably would have no idea of the awesomeness inside of this No Regrets pie unless I told you.  Here, have a look:

crust pieSee what I mean – insane and insanely delicious!  This is a four crust pie that I have dubbed (based on Danita N’s Facebook suggestion) No Regrets pie.  It’s sweet and salty, so chocolatey (there’s over a pound of chocolate inside – not mousse, just straight-up chocolate), and, of course, very rich and buttery.  It’s the ultimate pie for anyone who thinks that crust is the best part of a pie.

Forgo the fruit, part with the pumpkin, nix the nuts, and just try this pie.

Ingredients

    Butter Crust Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, chilled
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • Filling Ingredient
  • 1 1/4 pounds dark chocolate, melted (go for high quality here - it makes a difference)
  • Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Oreo Crust Ingredients
  • 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Pretzel Crust Ingredients
  • 1 2/3 cups pretzel sticks, broken into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

    Butter Crust Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine flour and salt.
  2. Dice the chilled butter and mix it into the flour and salt with your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in ice water a little at a time until the mixture forms a ball. Be careful not to overmix. When you are done, you should be able to still see pieces of butter in the dough.
  4. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least four hours or overnight.
  5. Roll dough out to fit a 9" pie plate and place dough into the pie pan.
  6. Cover the whole crust except for the outer rim with a thin layer of melted chocolate.
  7. Graham Cracker Crust Instructions
  8. Mix ingredients in a small bowl.
  9. Press onto chocolate layer up to the outer rim of the pie.
  10. Top with a layer of chocolate.
  11. Oreo Crust Instructions
  12. Mix ingredients in a small bowl.
  13. Press onto chocolate layer up to the outer rim of the pie.
  14. Top with a layer of chocolate.
  15. Pretzel Crust Instructions
  16. Mix ingredients in a small bowl.
  17. Press onto chocolate layer up to the outer rim of the pie.
  18. Place pie in the refrigerator and chill until the chocolate has completely hardened - about 20 minutes.
  19. Baking Instructions
  20. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  21. Bake for 40 minutes. Check at 20 minutes (and five minute intervals after that) to see if the edges of the butter crust are browning. Once they are browned, cover with foil or a pie guard to keep them from burning.

Notes

I suggest melting the chocolate in batches. It won't stay melted for long enough to prepare the whole pie. Also, you may not need all of it depending on how thinly you spread it.

Disclaimer: After eating two slices of this pie, I am beginning to question my choice of title.  I am full of regret right now.  Save yourself and stop at one slice!

  2. I love how your brain works!!! I saw a cake on the new yesterday called a Turdukkan Cake (the dessert version of chicken-turkey-duck). I think this pie might top it for flavour combinations!

    And here I thought that it was called “No Regrets” pie because it might be a smidge on the healthy side…. BWAH! Not so much! LOL But I guess you have no regrets because it is straight up DELISH!
