You all know I always want to make easy desserts that come together quickly and don't require the use of a gazillion ingredients. Especially during the pandemic, not everyone finds it easy to get their hands on ingredients at all time. This Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Pie was so good! It was so easy to make and I always have these ingredients in the pantry. I'm sure you do too! So, there really isn't any excuse not to rustle it up.
Another great thing about this recipe, it's one of those recipes that can be served all fancy sh-mancy and all that or even when snuggling up at home. It's such an elegant and indulgent dessert, you guys are going to fall in love! Don't blame me for any potential weight gain after making this recipe. I think I should have a disclaimer on this recipe. "Happy Hungry Hijabi is not responsible for any weight gained after consuming said product!"
