salted-caramel mocha pie, peppermint mocha pie... and a Torani syrup giveaway!

Salted caramel is all the rage lately, isn't it?  Everything from salted caramel candies to salted caramel mochas and hot chocolates...  it almost seems you can't find caramel without salt these days!

I'm certainly not saying that's a bad thing though!

Salt brings out the flavors in everything (which is why we use it in baking!) and especially does something amazing to caramel.  

This Salted Caramel Mocha Cream Pie is no exception!

I was recently sent 2 bottles of Torani flavored syrups to try out in some of my holiday baking...  Salted Caramel & Peppermint!  

I already adore Torani peppermint syrup in my hot chocolate, and for flavoring whipped cream (we all know how much I love peppermint & chocolate together!)...  

But the first thing I thought of when I saw the flavors was chocolate cream pies flavored with these fun flavors and matched up with delicious coffee liqueur!

Rich smooth, creamy chocolate with a hint of sweet, salty caramel or cool, refreshing peppermint...  these pies are a special treat, that's for sure!

I actually made two different pies at the same time, one salted caramel mocha pie and one peppermint mocha pie...  and they were both amazing and came together in no time!  

Try this recipe if you want an easy no-bake treat for the holidays.  Your guests will love you for it!

(The alcohol from in the pies is very minimal.  But feel free to substitute some very strong cold coffee instead of the coffee liqueur if you'd like!)

Salted Caramel Mocha Pie & Peppermint Mocha Pie Recipe
adapted from she wears many hats

for the crust:
18 regular (not double-stuffed) oreo cookies
3 tablespoons melted butter
for the filling:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
2 tablespoons Torani salted caramel syrup or peppermint syrup

Place the 18 cookies in a gallon ziploc bag, remove the air, seal & crush with a rolling pin until there are only fine crumbs.  Pour in the melted butter and mix up until the crumbs all combined and moistened.  

Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate and place in the freezer to set while you make the filling.

Melt the chocolate chips carefully in the microwave.  Stir every 30 seconds until smooth.  Place in the fridge to cool down a bit while you whip the cream.

In a medium bowl, whip the cream with the sugar until soft peaks form.  Slowly whip in the liqueur and syrup until just blended.  

Scoop the melted chocolate into the side of the whipped cream bowl and gently fold in with a spatula until completely incorporated...  being careful not to deflate all the whipped cream!

Spoon the filling into the chilled pie crust and place into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours or overnight.  Serve with lots of fresh whipped cream!!
