For the crust:
Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a food processor, place vanilla cookies and sugar. Process until cookies are finely crushed.
Add melted butter and process until combined. Remove from the food processor and spread evenly in a 9-inch pie pan. Use the bottom of a cup to firmly pack the cookie crust into the bottom and sides of the pan. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Bake in the oven the crust for 10 minutes, until lightly golden
For the caramel:
Melt the butter in a medium size saucepan over low heat.
Add sugar and stir until sugar has completely dissolved.
Once sugar mixture starts bubbling, carefully add sweetened condensed milk while whisking continuously.
Remove from the heat and add salt.
Once caramel filling has cooled down, pour over the tart crust only up to 3/4 full. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
For the ROLO® cream:
Melt ROLO® Creamy Caramels and milk chocolate chips in a medium size bowl over a bain marie. Remove from the heat and let cool down for 10 minutes.
Add half of the cream cheese and using an electric mixer beat to combine.
Mix in previously sifted powdered sugar.
Add the remaining cream cheese and beat until soft and smooth. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Remove chocolate cream from the fridge 15 minutes before using. Place the cream in a piping bag with a star tip and decorate the top of the tart alongside with ROLO® Creamy Caramels.
