Make The Base ✨✨✨

1. Caramel Latte Pie ☕
- 1/2 pint extra whipping cream
- Jar of thick caramel
- 1 Tbsp. ground coffee beans
- 1/4 cup chilled coffee
While you heat up your chocolate and pint of heavy cream, pour a jar of thick caramel into your pie crust and refrigerate. When your chocolate mixture is melted and smooth, pour into the pie crust and refrigerate.
Meanwhile, pour another half of a pint of heavy cream, ground coffee and coffee and beat the mixture until you’ve made whipped cream (it should be a soft peak). Smooth the coffee mousse over the refrigerated pie and refrigerate for another four hours. For a finishing touch, pour some extra caramel over the pie and enjoy!
2. Raspberry Chocolate Pie
- 1 cup raspberries, mashed
Add raspberries to your heated chocolate and pint of heavy cream, and pour into the pie crust. Refrigerate for at least four hours.
