Frozen Turtle Pie 

Ingredients: For the Crust: – 1 ½ cups chocolate cookie crumbs (about 20 cookies) – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling: – 1 cup heavy cream – 8 ounces cream cheese, softened – ¾ cup granulated sugar

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – ½ cup chocolate sauce or hot fudge sauce – ½ cup caramel sauce – 1 cup chopped pecan

Prepare the Crust: – Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). – In a mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cookie crumbs and melted butter. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand.

– Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. – Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes until set. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Prepare the Filling: – In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside. – In another mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.

– Gradually add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, beating until well combined. – Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until evenly incorporated.

– Drizzle half of the chocolate sauce and half of the caramel sauce over the bottom of the cooled crust. – Sprinkle half of the chopped pecans over the sauces.

– Spoon half of the cream cheese mixture over the pecans and sauces in the crust. – Repeat the layers with the remaining chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, chopped pecans, and cream cheese mixture.

Freeze the Pie: – Cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.

Serve: – Remove the pie from the freezer about 10-15 minutes before serving to soften slightly. – Cut into slices and serve chilled. Optionally, you can drizzle extra chocolate and caramel sauce over each slice before serving.
