Caramel, pecans and chocolate come together in this delicious turtle pie. It’s no-bake with a delicious Oreo cookie crust and creamy caramel filling.
This easy turtle pie has everything you love about the classic candy – chocolate, caramel and pecans – in a delicious cold and creamy pie. It starts with a crunchy Oreo cookie crust, then the filling is a no-bake caramel cheesecake almost like a caramel mousse. It’s topped with more caramel sauce, chocolate, whipped cream and pecans.
It’s inspired by the store-bought Edwards turtle pie only it’s creamier, more velvety smooth, and more delicious (in my humble opinion). You can freeze the pie if you like, but I definitely prefer the texture when it’s cold from the fridge because it’s smoother and a little lighter in texture.
The filling is essentially a no-bake caramel cheesecake, without being overly tangy. It’s surprisingly not too sweet either. Before serving you can drizzle the pie with more caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and pecans. Feel free to sprinkle chopped pecans over the top of the pie, or just around the edges like I did. You can either use chocolate sauce for the pie, or simply melt some chocolate.
