Chocolate & Rum Cream Pie

I've spotted the original recipe which is called 'chocolate & whiskey cream pie'  on facebook and what convinced me to give it a try is , of course, the booze called for !

The thing is that I don't have any whiskey in hand but this problem was easily solved cuz I have other kinds of alcohol to substitute it and I ended up modifying the recipe a bit to make my own version. Good news is that this pie turned out to be a big hit among my victims..:)

The recipe :


137g Oreo cookies ( stuffing removed )
35g  Melted unsalted butter


100ml  Milk
65ml  Whipping cream
130g Dark chocolate (70% cocoa mass)
25g Brown sugar
20g Caster sugar
10g Corn flour/startch
25ml Dark rum
1 Egg yolk

Topping ( I used only 2/3 of it )

175ml Whipping cream
45g Plain yogurt
20g  Icing sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
Shaved Dark chocolate to sprinkle on top

Method :

Place the Oreo cookies in the food processor and process until fine crumbs. Add the butter and mix throughly, then spread and press down on 18 cm tart pan ( removable bottom ), bake for 10-12 mins in the preheated oven ( 180c ). Leave to completely cool.

Whisk together the yolk, rum, corn flour, caster sugar and brown sugar in a medium bowl, heat the milk and the whipping cream in a saucepan until hot but not boiled , slowly pour the hot milk and cream mixture into the bowl, whisk all the time, until fully combine.
Transfer back to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to boil.

Take the saucepan out of the heat, pour the chocolate into the saucepan, whisk slowly until combine. Pour it onto the cooled crust and spread over evenly. Leave to cool outside before refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. ( I left it overnight in the fridge. )

Whip the whipping cream, plain yogurt and icing sugar together until soft peaks formed.
Spoon over the filling and sprinkle with some shaved /grated dark chocolate , let it set in the fridge for few hours before slicing and serve.
