This was dessert after Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, it was everything I dreamed it would be and more.

1 package Oreos (36 cookies)

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, divided

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided

1 (12 oz) bag dark chocolate candy melts

1  Crush Oreos with food processor.  Stir crumbs with 1 stick of melted butter until well combined.  Press into bottom and up sides of a tart pan or pie plate.  Freeze for 10 minutes to set.

2  Combined remaining stick of butter and brown sugar in small saucepan and cook over medium heat whisking constantly until mixture begins to bubble.  Continue cooking 1 minute still whisking constantly.  Remove from heat and slowly whisk in 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream until smooth.  Cool mixture about 15 minutes then pour over crust and freeze for 30 – 45 minutes.

3  In another small saucepan, bring 1 cup heavy whipping cream to a simmer over medium high heat.  Pour cream over candy melts in a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes then whisk until smooth.  Pour chocolate over caramel layer and freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate covered until ready to serve.  Before serving, sprinkle with sea salt.
