Chocolate Caramel Pie (No Bake)

I first made this when I was 12 for my mother's birthday and has been one of my signature dishes ever since. This recipe is wonderful for special occasions when you really want to wow your audience. It is very rich and decadent but also requires a great deal of chill time to prepare (total of three hours chill time included in prep time). Please read the entire recipe before deciding to make and take the note at the bottom of the recipe into consideration. Plan ahead, it will be worth it!

This was amazing. The first time I made it the caramel came out a little too chewy, but it was so delicious I had to try it again. The truffle layer was too rich for some people, but the chocoholics will love it. A little slice goes a long way.

YUM! This was good. It is a bit time consuming to make but everyone enjoyed it. I followed the recipe as written other then I used splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. Everyone enjoyed it.
