Spray the inside of 11 inch round (3 inch deep) dessert dish OR 2 shallow (1.5 inch) - 9 inch pie plates with non-stick cooking spray. Note: For one pie plate, cut recipe in half. Simply input the number of servings (8) and the recipe will automatically cut in half.
Mix oreo cookie baking crumbs, ½ cup unsalted and melted butter and 2 tblsp white granulated sugar together in large bowl until they cling together. Press evenly into bottom of pie plate. Chill for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile: Melt semi-sweet chocolate in microwave on ½ power (50% on my microwave) for about 2 ½ - 3 minutes or until melted, then mix with ¼ cup melted butter and corn syrup. *NOTE: You can also choose to use a double boiler to melt chocolate for this step. **NOTE: be careful: If you cook the chocolate on too high of a temperature in the microwave or it comes in contact with any water, it will seize.
Pour glaze evenly over oreo cookie mix, very gently spreading with a spatula, as to not break up the cookie or get the crumbs into the chocolate mixture. Evenly cover the entire area. Refrigerate until firm (about 15 minutes)
Spread whipping cream evenly over the chocolate cookie crust, then add a sliced or broken up pieces of white cake.
Add yellow gel food/icing coloring to vanilla pudding until you get desired colour of yellow. Set aside.
Top with yellow vanilla pudding. Then use a butter knife to even out, until it’s flush with the edge of the pie plate, adding more or removing excess pudding, as needed.
Chocolate Bats: (**SEE NOTES)
Remove the wrappers from the Reese's cups.
Break the cookies in half and then separate all of the pieces from one another so you now have 8 "bat wings". Scrape off the frosting.
Press one cookie piece on the left of the Reeses cup and another cookie piece on the right of the Reeses cup.
Pipe frosting on the back of the edible eyes and secure on top of the center of the Reeses cup. Repeat for remaining 3 bats.
Place bats on top of dessert. Serve immediately.***NOTE: If you do not plan to serve right away, refrigerate until ready to serve but do NOT put bats on until immediately before serving. They will get mushy, eyeballs run and they look awful (this happened to me).
🌡️Storing Store this pie in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days👪 Serving
This recipe has a pie crust, but the rest is the consistency of a trifle. Before, serving, it's best to cut into the bottom to break it up, as you would a pie.
If you do not plan to serve right away, refrigerate until ready to serve but do NOT put bats on until immediately before serving. They will get mushy, eyeballs run and they look awful (this happened to me).
