Well in a post I said I saw this recipe the other day and I would post it.  Here it is but I must warn everyone I have not made this yet and the calorie count is outrageous.   (920 calories per slice..that's over half a full days worth of calories in one slice of pie)
Salted Caramel-Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie. 
Crust:
1 refrigerated pie crust, or home made crust for a 9 or 10 inch

Filling:
1 Bag (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped
1/4 Cup milk
1 1/2 Cup Spanish peanuts
1 Can (14 ounces) Sweetened condensed milk
1 Egg beaten
1/3 Cup peanut butter
8 ounces miniature peanut butter candies, chopped

Topping:
1 bar (1.55 ounces) chocolate candy, melted
1/4 Cup Spanish peanuts
1/4 tsp Kosher salt or coarse salt

Heat oven to 450 degrees F. 
Bake pie crust as directed.  cool completely. 

In a medium microwavable bowl microwave caramels and milk on High 1 to 2 minutes or until melted; stir until smooth. 
Reserve 2 Tablespoons of the melted caramel. 
Stir in to the remaining caramel the 1 1/2 Cup of nuts.
Pour mixture into baked pie crust. 

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


I am going to make this I just have to figure out when I will have enough people over that I will not end up with more than 1 slice left. although I bet it would freeze without a problem. 
This is from Pillsbury so I am sure many of you have seen the recipe.  If anyone has made this let me know how it is.

That's my problem ---- figuring out what to do with a project.  But this one sure sounds like a favorite for me.  Oh, it sounds good.
I would use pecans or macadamia instead of peanuts.

Nancy I was thinking I would use almonds or Macadamia nuts. I have both in the house and I happen to have a bag of mini candy bars that I think I would use rather than peanut butter cups. 
This is a recipe that looks like it could easily be switched and played with in many ways.

I wish I did have the excuses to try this --- it sounds so good.  And, of course, I have bags of peanut butter cups, bags of mini Snickers and bags of Milky Way .... lots of stuff, plus every kind of nuts.

Hey Nikki - if we lived closer think of the fun we would have "sharing" - lol

I think living closer to any of this group would be trouble.
Lots of fun but trouble.

920 calories per slice...gulp...I eat no more than 1600 calories/day, so this would have to be made as a very special treat, and when there's lots of people around to help consume it immediately! That being said, I'm definitely keeping the recipe. LOL

Nikki, I always get a kick out of the "caramels, unwrapped", like anyone would try to melt them in the cellophane.

When ever I see 1 Bag (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped  I wonder just how many would try it without unwrapping them

Mary K. D, I thought the same thing and I was going to make a comment about that but I figured I had better leave well enough alone.

Verlee, my thought exactly about the pie and the number of calories.  I figure this would be a once or twice a year pie unless I was making it to bring someplace.  
This might be best made in a springform pan, that would result in a shorter thinner pie that could be cut into much smaller pieces. That might reduce the calories by half.

You need to change that that "but, but, but" to a but using two "t's" rather than one. (I tried to write it out that way  but the filter got me)Innocent

You guys are killing me!! I'm on the South Beach diet and realizing that my old eating habits need changed but reading this recipe is almost too much to handle! lol.  Not only would I be eating the caramels, but I'd obviously have to taste the pie to be sure it was fit to serve!  Oh the agony!

I have invited a couple over for dinner on Sunday and I was thinking of making the Rosemary-kissed Chocolate Satin Tart that is on this site but then I saw this again and now I am in a quandary.......
Then again I am serving lamb and the lamb will have rosemary ...oh I don't know now!!!!
