Ferrero Pie

Ferrero Rocher Pie
Serves 8

Ingredients: 

Ingrediants

Crust

  • 28 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed – I used chocolate Oreos
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
{I used a store bought pre-made Oreo Cookie Pie Crust}

Pie Filling

  • 3/4 cup hazelnut chocolate spread – I used Nutella
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar (Or Powder Sugar)
  • 3 ounces 60% cacao dark chocolate, chopped very fine
  • 10 Ferrero Rocher chocolates, coarsely chopped

Final Touches

  • 6 ounces Cool Whip
  • 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates, coarsely chopped

Method

  1. To begin, prepare your cookies and chocolate.  Using a food processor, crush the cookies into a fine crumble.  Set aside. (Remember if you use a store bought crust you can skip this and step 3&4).
  2. Using a small pairing knife, gently run the knife along the dark chocolate bar, creating small shavings.  {I used a microplane– made it SO much easier and quicker} This is a bit time consuming but completely worth it.  Large chunks will not work in this filling.  Set chocolate aside.  Do the same with the Ferrero Rocher chocolates and set aside.
  3. Melt butter and combine with cookie until all the crumbs are saturated.
  4. Using a 9-inch pie plate, press the crumbs into the bottom of the pie plate, covering the entire surface and forming the crust.  Make sure the cookie mixture is evenly distributed.  Place in the freezer.  mixing
  5. With an electric hand or standing mixer, combine the cream cheese, shaved dark chocolate, sugar, and hazelnut chocolate spread.  In three to five minutes, the mixture should become light and fluffy.  Then, on a low setting, combine Cool Whip and 10 chopped Ferrero Rocher chocolates.  Combine well.
  6. Remove the crust from the freezer.  Using a spatula, spread the filling mixture over the crust, covering completely and smoothly. Return to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the filling to firm.
  7. Once the filling has grown semi-firm, remove from freezer.  Cover the filling with Cool Whip.  Then, sprinkle with remaining four Ferrero Rocher chocolate pieces.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
