Gooey Candy Bar Peanut Butter Pie
18 chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted + 1/2 cup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup Karo light corn syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups chopped candy bar of choice
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together crushed cookies and melted 3 tablespoons butter until well combined; press crumbs into bottom and up the sides of pie dish.
Melt remaining 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly, until butter foams and starts to turn golden brown. Transfer butter to a large mixing bowl.
Add brown sugar to mixing bowl. Mix together, using a mixer on medium speed, until well combined - about 1 minute. Beat in peanut butter, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt until well combined - about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour until just combined. Stir in candy bar until combined. Spread filling on top of chocolate cookie crust. Evenly sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 23-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Cool completely before slicing. Drizzle caramel sauce on top of pie and serve with whipped cream.
