Chocolate Glazed Turtle Pie

Chocolate Glazed Turtle Pie

1 prepared graham cracker pie crust (6 ounce)

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

1/2 cup pecan halves, divided

2 packages (3.9 ounce each) chocolate instant pudding mix

2 cups cold milk

2 cups thawed whipped topping (like Cool Whip), divided

2 squares semi-sweet chocolate


Spread caramel topping in the bottom of the prepared pie crust. Reserve 10 whole pecans for garnish (I used 12 pecans). Coarsely chop remaining pecans; sprinkle over caramel topping in pie shell.

Beat the pudding mixes with milk and whisk for 2 minutes. Stir in 1 cup Cool Whip; pour into crust. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

Microwave chocolate squares and remaining Cool Whip in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 minute; stir until melted and blended. Spread over pie. Top with reserved nuts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
