This is a no-bake, cold and creamy ice cream pie recipe.

Why Is It Called a Turtle Pie?

The turtle pie got its name because it’s made with the same ingredients as the turtle-shaped candy made by the DeMet’s Candy Company. Turtles are made with pecans and caramel dipped in chocolate. At some point, a very creative cook thought that chocolate, caramel, and pecans would also work great as a pie, and so the turtle pie was born!

What’s the Difference Between Chocolate Sauce and Hot Fudge Sauce?

The main difference between these two sauces is consistency. Chocolate sauce is thinner and a bit less rich because the chocolate is mixed with water or corn syrup. Hot fudge sauce tends to be thicker because it incorporates butter and milk or cream.

Ways to Use Hot Fudge Sauce

  • Drizzle on top of fruit such as bananas or strawberries.
  • Pour a little over brownies or peanut butter blondies.
  • Use as a filling for crepes, maybe along with some fruit.
  • Split some plain croissants and spread with just a little sauce.
  • Combine with mangos on pancakes.
  • Make banana boats. Split a peeled banana and fill with some sauce. Top with marshmallows (optional). Wrap in foil and bake until golden.
  • Make chocolate pizza. Roll out the dough, slather on some sauce, and top with fruit and shredded coconut. Bake and serve with ice cream.

Caramel is sugar taken just to the very edge of being burnt. The color of caramel indicates the extent to which it has been cooked. If it is very pale, it is just concentrated sugar syrup. Stage two is golden, followed by amber and dark. If you would like to try your hand at making your own caramel sauce, click here to learn how.

If you want an extra rich flavor to cook your pecans in real butter until they become aromatic and roast just a bit. I do not know if that works with margarine, I have only tried that with real butter.

    I know this is a comment years late, but you might want to check out the copy in your instruction section for this recipe.

    “Line the bottom of the crust with the hot fudge sauce” should not be the last instruction….

    My daughter’s number one request for her birthday is Baskin Robbins turtle pie, but I got tired of paying their high prices. So I tried this recipe, and my daughter likes it even better! I toasted the pecans in butter and put a single layer of pecans on the hot fudge layer before adding the ice cream, then followed the rest of the recipe. Easy, delicious, and much cheaper!
