The Not-So-Slow Turtle

Warning: The Turtle Item below does not move slowly.
In fact, the one below was gone within 24 hours of its arrival.

Take care you keep it well hidden...
{unless you are in to sharing}.


~TURTLE ICE CREAM CAKE~

Take a tub of ice cream....

Layer it on top of a chocolate cookie crumb crust 
which has been covered in pecans.

Layer this caramel sauce somewhere in between.
As much as you want.
{It IS Fat Free}

After you have hidden all the cookie crust, pecans, caramel....

....add another layer of pecans, caramel, and chocolate.
Chocolate chips, chocolate bars, 
or even Nutella works well.

Another layer of the vanilla/chocolate swirl ice cream:
Add as many Turtles as you want and cover it 
all in Caramel Sauce (again).....

And voila!
(I don't usually follow a recipe for these kinds of matters.
In whatever sugar mood I feel so inclined, 
therein lies the ingredients and amounts of.)

Eat quick. 
It moves faster than the average Turtle.

Mmmmmm...I love turtles!

You can't post something like that and not have enough to share with everyone!!! Oh, maybe this will make me care enough to cook! :)

Dawn, this looks so tempting and if I could eat ice cream I'd get dressed and head down to the grocery store and get the ingredients. This looks like it would be totally worth running the car for 15 mins. to warm up and the drive to the store... even in -25! lol

Lynette said...

You know this struck passion in my heart. I make a turtle cheesecake also. I have a favorite family owned ice cream shop that is famous for their turtle sundae, and have driven there many times just to get one, 170 miles round trip.
