Sweet Treat!

Back in my "Sherry" post, I mentioned the chocolate truffle pie. So, if you've been longing for chocolate, here you go! It's super easy!

Chocolate Turtle Truffle Pie

1 chocolate wafer pie crust

1/2 c. chopped pecans -- sprinkle over pie crust.

Melt:
17-18 individually wrapped caramels
1/4 c. evaporated milk

Pour over pecans

Melt:
1 + 1/2 c. chocolate chips
3 T. butter

Pour over caramel

Top with a crushed up Heath Bar.

Chill several hours (I did overnight) but serve a room temperature. Serve with whipped cream.

NOTES: I got this recipe from my friend Pat. I had trouble with the chocolate seizing up when I melted it. I did the micro-method. Next time, I'll do it on the stove, stirring like a crazy lady. Still tasted as good. I also used fat free evaporated milk. I don't know why; there's enough in this to clog serious arteries!

I am going to try this sometime as a candy-like thing, making my own wafer crust and putting it in a 9x9 pan. It's very dense. And very delicious!

  7. Someone gave me an ultra easy tidbit recently: a mini pretzel with a rollo candy melted onto it and a pecan on top. Sort of a turtle-like thing. This sounds like a superior way to do it.
