Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, such as Pillsbury, softened as directed on the box
  • One 14-ounce bag caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 1 1/2 Cup Spanish peanuts, plus ¼ cup for topping
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 Cup peanut butter
  • 1 Cup miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped, chopped
  • 1 bar milk chocolate candy, melted
  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Bake the pie crust as directed on box to make a 1 crust baked pie shell, using 10-inch glass pie plate. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave the caramels and milk uncovered on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted and stir until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the melted caramel. Stir 1 1/2 cups peanuts into remaining caramel. Pour the caramel mixture into the baked pie crust.

Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir the condensed milk, egg, and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in the chopped peanut butter cups. Pour in the crust over the caramel mixture. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Drizzle the melted candy bar and reserved caramel over top of pie. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup peanuts. Lightly sprinkle kosher salt. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

Salt Shopping Tip

Salt enhances food by adding depth and accentuating existing flavors. Be sure to have a couple types in your cupboards. Regular iodized salt for the table is typical; sea salt is also a great investment.

Salt Cooking Tip

Bland food is never good. Be sure to season every layer of your food while cooking.
