Plan on having some time for making this incredible southern dessert. There’s a little bit of wait time between making the layers. For a special occasion or Christmas dessert or Mardi Gras party, it is time well spent. You won’t find a more decadent dessert and that praline flavor is killer.

Each layer is easy to make. First a basic oreo crust. Then a praline layer is made on the stovetop with butter, light brown sugar, vanilla, and pecans. Once poured over the crust, it needs to be refrigerated for 1 to 2 hours before you add the cream cheese layer.

Then that layer needs to be chilled before you add the chocolate layer.

A whole lot of waiting but one bite and you’ll be hooked.

Ingredients
Oreo Crust
  • 26 Oreo cookies, processed in food processor until ground
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
Praline
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
Ganache
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  5. Make cream cheese filling. Use an electric mixer to beat all filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over praline layer and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

  6. Make ganache. Place chocolate chips and cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave 20 seconds and stir until smooth. Pour over cream cheese layer.

  7. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Garnish with whole pecans if desired.
