I’m the first to admit that I’m a total sucker for Turtle candies. Chocolate, caramel, and pecans. What’s not to love?!? Also, I’m probably far too fond of ice cream and/or frozen desserts. So, combine the two and you get this awesome after-dinner/eat-any-time treat.

Peanut butter and chocolate are the driving forces in this frosty pie. A layer of caramel and a sprinkle of pecans make it worthy of the turtle title.

CLICK HERE for all the nutritional details. The Kraft recipe site is good about that stuff. And Dr. Cory Prince Reagan, the heroine of Hard Target’s DOUBLE CROSS, has become remarkably adept at making it. Living the laid-back life on Key West has given Cory an appreciation for frozen desserts, especially those that include chocolate, caramel, and pecans! Duke Reagan, and his Atlantis Team members, tend to hover, watching the time. I won’t mention who suggested a shortcut–using liquid nitrogen. 🙄 If you’d like to read Cory and Duke’s story and haven’t yet, just click on book cover. It’s still free to read on Kindle Unlimited or you can buy it for less that a Starbucks would cost. 🙂 Who else is with Cory and me on the chocolate, caramel and pecan train?
