Dekker clicks when those code-word constraints are lessened and it feels like a genuine conversation, a delve into the psyche of someone who genuinely believes they have a special ability. These lines of questioning go deep like roots, each hinting at some new development, either in the murder case or in bringing you one step closer to believing that a person just might actually be able to raise the dead.
Dekker effectively gamifies curiosity by tying your sanity to the number of questions you ask. The deeper you peer into the abyss to sate your need to know, the more the abyss peers back into you; while I was curious about tales of an underwater being made of pure light, the notion was also driving my character to madness. In one of my last interviews of the game before the final verdict, a subject called attention to the fact that I had not only entertained the idea of her having supernatural powers, but even facilitated and encouraged it.
Not so unwittingly, I had played accomplice to a much darker purpose, and I was every bit as guilty as the monster I made her out to be.

Calling attention to how I had given priority to my own curiosity over finding solutions, Dekker managed to guilt me for my actions in a rare way. It would be difficult to sell these kinds of developments without strong performances from the cast. I was particularly enamored with Jaya, the assistant who seems to play both the angel and devil on your shoulder at any given time.
The subtle way she delivered her lines was surprisingly nuanced for an FMV game, where theatrics are usually the norm. The patients do their part to sell their personas as well. There were some side characters, somewhat shoehorned in, who took the story off the beaten path. Dekker or the proceedings at hand. Because of that, the side stories end up feeling tangential, a clear deviation from the core progression of the story, and reminded me that I was playing a game with achievements and optional content rather than holding a conversation of any kind.
It reminded me of those younger days, when a ghost in The 7th Guest would appear in a hallway, rendered in low-fi imagery but still getting a jump and laugh out of me at the same time. At one point, I stumbled upon a line of dialogue in which a character nonchalantly informed me that the specter of a small girl had been standing behind me throughout the interview. It was a dead-end line of questioning that barely went anywhere, but it still made the nape of my neck bristle. The A. Eric Van Allen. Share This Story.
Looked like I fussed. This pie would lend itself to all sorts of modifications. I used dark brown sugar I think you used light and I added some white rum near the end of the caramel cooking time. It seems to have added some extra kick! As for the chocolate, I had some frozen Dove dark chocolate which I will use in place of the chips. Fingers crossed! Is there a way to add peanut butter to the caramel? Or would it somehow change the consistency?
I was planning to make this for dessert tonight and just discovered I do not have dark chocolate chips!!! Good morning! This looks so yummy! Any recommendations on what I can add instead of caramel? Thanks in advance! Absolutely scrumptious pie and a big hit at work. I had similar problem as another poster, though.
My caramel was very soft and oozed out, even after slicing and serving right out of the fridge. I froze everything for exactly as long as you said. So we made this this weekend and our caramel never set. Other then that I called it swimming mud pie. Because to me it looked like mud swimming in caramel haha. Still delicious though! Its easy and elegant and soooo very rich!!! I love it and will make it again! Without a doubt!!!
Thanks for sharing this recipe! On Christmas eve, my family participates in a dessert contest. I wanted to make this for the contest. The testbatch came out great and many people asked for the recipe, so I promptly emailed them a link to your recipe on your blog. Since the test batch went well, I made the pie for the Christmas eve dessert contest. I won! Picture of the half-eaten pie and my trophy are here. Thanks for sharing and contributing to my first dessert contest win!
Made this last night, for no special occasion and it turned out perfectly! Thanks for sharing :. This is an awesome pie. I made GF using special cookies, plus tried to limit calories by using non-fat condensed milk. It was excellen. Any tips for getting it right? And do you use dark or light brown sugar? Thanks so much for this fun recipe! I had the same issue the first time I made it. Did anybody else fail terribly when making this pie? I did. The flavors were all there and the crust was perfect but the filling had the consistency of jelly even after hours in the fridge.
I have no idea what went wrong but I called it chocolate lava and ate it anyway. This was so good!! And so much easier then I expected. I did it in a 9 x 13 glass dish and I refrigerated it after each step instead of freezing. Definitely be making this again!!!! Otis the post about being in Canada I ended up buying two boxes of cookies and counting out Made this for our Christmas dessert and it is so delicious! Easy and simple! Will be making again. How many ounces did you use for the crust? Gooey, rich, salty-sweet, and gorgeously decadent.
Thanks for the fantastic recipe! I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! The crust crumbled apart a lot. Would baking it like you do a graham crust help? Thanks ahead. Love all of the interactions in the comments too! Also i added a teaspoon of salt to the caramel mixture to make salted caramel instead of putting it on top!! Delicious x.
I am going to layer the rest on top. Will it be impossible to get out of a shaped pan? I might have missed this but does it freeze well? Do you think spraying mini muffin tins would be okay to get out? Oreos tend to pick up other flavors in the freezer easier than some other things. Check out comment for more info on making it as bars. Hope this helps! It was absolutely perfect! So easy to make and tastes heavenly! Thank you so much for sharing! This pie was so incredibly delicious!
Decker P.I. Lives in the Balance
Thanks for the recipe; I will definitely make this again!! Making this as I type.. Ah, I am waiting the 15 min for the caramel layer. Looks so good. Making it for a birthday party Maybe again for a Christmas party later in week. Have you ever tried doubling this recipe and making it into bars instead of a pie? Needing something to take to a party, and this sounds scrumptious. I was going to make it for a party a week ahead of time.
Thx Dina. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I wanted to try it out before serving for Christmas eve. Let me just say, YUM! It was a hit and really so easy to make. Great recipe! I made this for Thanksgiving and it. Everyone requested it for Christmas! So easy and so scrumptious! If you are using a tart pan-can you remove the finished tart off the tart pan base? This was insanely rich but SO delicious!
Will you brainstorm with me on how to possibly make this into bite sized pieces? Do you have any suggestions?? Thanks So Much!! Hi Krista! Be sure to coat the foil generously with cooking spray. I would press the Oreo crust only on the bottom, not up the sides.
Refrigerate overnight so it is very firm. When ready to cut, you can lift the entire pie out by the foil and cut into bite-size pieces. Return pieces to fridge until ready to serve, and serve straight from fridge, as cold as possible. Did you try her suggestion as i was thinking of doing the same thing? I am so going to make this and guess what I have two boston terriers too!!! Love them and it looks like I am going to love this dessert!!! Thanks for sharing……… Julie. I made it yesterday and it was delicious. It was soooo rich.
I made this for a family Thanksgiving. It was a hit! It was so delicious! And so easy to make too. It was the first pie to disappear. The only complaint I heard was I should have made two. I made this for Thanksgiving. It was very good but very rich. I made this in a pie plate, and it turned out perfectly! A tart pan is on my Christmas list, because it would probably be easier to serve.
This pie was a HUGE hit. Forget traditional pies — this was the star. Thanks, Amanda! Took this for Thanksgiving dinner today, and it was sooooo good! The layers just kind of melt in your mouth, and then you get the bit of crunch from the cookie crust, and the salty taste at the end…. It seemed like the oreos were too much for my pie pan. I did have to double the caramel and chocolate layers, but it worked fantastic and looked great! I think I would make it like this again if I had a big crowd. Thanks very much — it even looked the same! A fan. Happy Holidaze! I made your fabulous dessert for Thanksgiving dinner!
When I was making it, I had my doubts since BOTH the caramel and the ganache layers looked quite a bit thinner than yours, even though I followed directions. But they were perfect. It was so easy to make and I had all the ingredients already when I saw this recipe on Facebook last night. It looks absolutely amazing! So I lined a spring form pan with foil and tried to smooth it down as much as I could.
I just made this pie to serve to my family on Thanksgiving. I bought one so I could make this pie. It was amazingly easy and I am pretty sure it is going to be delicious. What can be bad lol! Thanks Amanda. I made it today, and it is so so good! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
I would do that [not jarred]…. Do you have to put it in the freezer each step? Or would a longer time in the refrigerator work? And would definitely need to eat some things before I could make it. I always do the crust in the freezer, but yes the other layers can definitely firm up in the refrigerator. That would be yummy!
Any suggestions on how much PB I and should use and if I need to do something specific with it before putting it on heating it, adding sugar, etc? Made this for a work potluck lunch tomorrow. Kind of defeats the purpose of this type of pie. This looks scrumptious! How long do you think it would keep in the refrigerator? Would it last, or does it need to be eaten quickly? Hi Alicia! Hmm… a week might be a tad long. How about this: will your pie pan fit in a large freezer bag?
You can easily find huge 2-gallon ziploc bags this time of year. I would make the crust ahead of time a week in advance is fine and then cover it with foil and put it in the ziploc bag and freeze. You can also make the salted caramel sauce a week in advance and store it covered tightly, like in a mason jar, in the fridge.
Two nights before the party, warm the salted caramel sauce in the microwave until just softened, and pour into pie crust. Cover back up and refrigerate. Pour it over the pie and refrigerate until the party. Would that work? Amanda, That actually worked out perfectly! Thanks for the tips! I am making this for Thanksgiving and I know it will be a hit. I made it this weekend. It was wonderful. Followed the directions to a T. Hope it was still good anyway!!
Dark Chocolate Pie Recipe — Three Layers of Decadence
I had wondered the same thing, Tracy, but I realized that the cream part of the Oreo helps the crust hold together. After all, it is a combination of sugar and fat. Sure, I would add regular table salt to the butter and brown sugar before you melt it. Hi Amanda, I love the recipe! I was wondering how well the tart would hold up if we eat outside on a really hot day although, I sincerely doubt there will be any left, once my brother spots it? Hi Leah! So you would not make this in Bar form? Can you use semi-sweet, or milk chocolate instead? Thank you!! Hi Theresa! It would probably be fine as a bar.
It holds up pretty well. It oozed everywhere after the first cut. Any tips on how to solidify the caramel? I made it and it turned out perfectly! It was sooo decadent and delicious! Very rich, and it is now my favorite dessert ever! Do you think it will fit in a inch diameter, 1-inch high false-bottom tart pan? I have both the deep quiche pan, and the shallow tart pan. Hi Carolina! I would probably make it in the deep dish pan just to be safe. This Pie looks amazing and i swear to god, im going to buy the ingredients tomorrow and im going to bake this pie!!
I cant imagine any other taste, than awesome… Grettings from Germany ;D. Do you think this would work in bar form, as a more portable option? Hi Jeradawn! I would line the pan with foil so you could lift it out easier to cut it. I made it into a bar at Christmas and it worked out very well. I think it goes farther more people get to try it because you are able to cut it into more pieces when you are sharing it at a get together.
HAD to make this tonight! Just finished my first piece and it was SO amazing! Easy to make and tastes so rich and divine! Thanks for the awesome recipe! I am making this for Thanksgiving!!! One question, do you use the cream filling in the oreos as well? It was so nice meeting you at the Pillsbury event. This looks so sinfully good!
And the photos are amazing. Why is it only 9 AM? I need this pie! I am definitely making this for Thanksgiving!!! I am drooling all over my keyboard. Will post this on my blog in a few days with your link. Thanks for a super recipe!!! OMG, only five ingredients for all of that wonderfulness?! I am Pinning this to make in the very near future! This pie looks amazing and so simple to make!
I love the chunky layers and will definitely try it soon! I feel like i can copy anything you make. Thank You! I would love a huge slice right now! The fact that this cake is so beautiful, sounds so delicious and seems soo easy is both amazing and dangerous at the same time!! Amanda, wow, this pie!!! Your email address will not be published.

Marianne Evans. Made this last night for a dinner party with rave reviews! Debbie Corral. This looks amazing. I wonder how many mini pies mini muffin tin size it would make. The Brunette's Tofu. Would it work to make it in a springform pan? Lindsey Lyman. Christy B. Milea Cristina. You put it on top of the finished pie.
Hope that helps! Trina and Tina. Les H. Great blog! Glad I found it, I will be trying a lot of the good things I have seen here! Thank you for sharing this great recipe. You forgot the salt!

Bella Michelle. Made this today for a pie day party. It was a big hit! Thanks for the recipe. I made this for my family today and everybody loved it. Amber M. The Scarlett. Jenetta Penner. Looks fabulous!!! Could milk chocolate be substituted for dark chocolate?? Jodi Moore. Hi Amaanda- Thanks for sharing this recipe! Suzanne Holt. Hi Laura! Farzana Gandhi. Could you also add a layer of marshmallow between the caramel and chocolate?
I would be using either a 1 inch deep tart pan 10 inch or a 9 or 10 inch springform pan. If your in a pinch could this also be done with a store bough oreo crust? Dolores fernandes. I also had the runny caramel filling problem — not sure why. But it was delicious anyway! I made mine in a springform pan, and it worked perfectly. Debbie Olson. Michelle Torres. Bobbie Sanderson Taylor. Follow all the steps just like it said my caramel was runny…. What I made wrong? It all fit right in the middle :.
Dea L. I just made this as my special birthday treat. So easy and decadent Looks amazing! Could you add some salt to the caramel mixture instead of putting it on top? I made the caramel layer with salted butter. It worked very well. Julie Hartford. This looks absolutely fantastic, and I may make it for my holiday party this December. The reason to do it in the shallower pan is to get a perfectly even edge on the crust. I made it in the shallow pan. It fits, and it looks very elegant!
