Bailey’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie Recipe

Although this Bailey’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie Recipe is one I shared a while back, it is most certainly worth mentioning again. Yes it is. There are multiple reasons to make this recipe but anything with caramel and chocolate is a no brainer for me.

Bailey's Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie Recipe

Seriously, if you’re planning a party, especially a ladies get-together (because you know the ladies like the caramel with the chocolate), this pie would be a great addition to the menu plan. It’s a crowd pleaser for sure, and would be fantastic served at a dessert and coffee social.

I would recommend doing a recipe test-run through first so you can taste test it. I think taste testing first is always a good idea. It’s really the nice thing to do, don’t ya think? 😉

This Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie could not be easier. The preparation is quick. This pie can be prepared in a short 15 minutes. After a little melting of chocolate and whipping of cream, basically you’re done! Then refrigerate the pie for a few hours until set. It is an excellent dessert recipe for making ahead a day or two. Actually, I think this pie is even better the longer it can sit and mingle. The caramel and chocolate need time to get to know each other.

A few Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie recipe notes:

  • If you can’t find Bailey’s with a hint of Caramel, easily substitute another Bailey’s flavor or another cream liqueur of your choice. I think a chocolate mint combination would be out of this world!
  • The recipe calls for a chocolate cookie pie crust, but any pre-baked cracker crust will work well for this pie. A simple graham cracker would be oh so tasty. Or a pretzel crust?!? Oh my …

    I have a quick question… the hint of caramel, did you add a little bit of caramel syrup or did you use flavored baileys? I am confused where the hint of caramel comes from and what type/ how much to use.

    Cant wait to make this :)

      Just being honest, I’m not sure. Since it’s a whipped cream pie, not sure how it would freeze. Maybe do some checking around online to see if others have mentioned how cream pies freeze first? Sorry I can’t be of more help. It has never lasted long enough to make it to the freezer. 😉

    This pie looks amazing! Quick question – because the pie filling is so light, did you find the crust to be enough as it was or do you think it might benefit from a more substantial crust (like you get from leaving the filling in when you pulverize the Oreo cookies)? Thanks!

        Thanks! The crust was tasty, but maybe too thick (I should have been less liberal perhaps). I made it for Pi Day – it was a big hit! Also, apparently there is no more Baileys with a hint of Caramel. They actually replaced it with Salted Caramel Baileys. Which is delicious. :-)

    This looks like everything right in the world. I need this now.
    Rookie question- can you substitute the cream and sugar for whipped cream or will that mess with the consistency?
