"Absolutely delicious, although very rich. Pie version of the turtle chocolates. I used to sell this pie to a restaurant and the customers loved it."

This pie was so, so, SO good. It was unbelievable--and I don't even like pecans! We made two for my father's birthday--I made one and my 13 year old niece made one. They were fabulous, but *very* rich for our family's tastes--and we are rather hearty eaters of sweets. My only complaints are that it *is* time-consuming (to wait for it to cool) and that it does get gooey with only minimal time at room temperature. But I really can't say enough nice things about this recipe--it was so fabulous and exotic flavored, and yet a 13 year old was able to do it with no trouble. Bravo to this recipe!
This is a quick and easy pie to make. The caramel that is called for in this recipe with the brown sugar, condensed milk, and Karo syrup is quite versatile and can be used for other caramel needs. I only made half the recipe, and it chilled quickly and was delicious. The only thing I would recommend is cutting the caramel by 1/4 because what happens is that it overpowers the pie crust and the chocolate topping. Also, instead of using a regular pie crust, I made a chocolate cookie crust. Yum!
absolutely sinful and so very delicious.
more for wintertime than summer but I'm going to do it a lot when the frost comes...
Exactly the flavor I was looking for. I added whipped cream and it was the perfect touch not only for taste but also for presentation. I really like the idea of a "turtle cream" pie, and next time I will probably half ALL of the ingredients (except for pecans/shell) and put at least 8 oz. of whip cream (enough to fill out the pie crust) on top. I also decorated with pecans dipped in caramel, chopped chocolate chips with shavings, etc, and drizzled caramel. I would not use a graham cracker crust or cookie crust as someone recommended as it is already really rich (sweet).
I never thought I would say something is "too sweet" but this is! I would never make this again. I did make it the way the recipe called for, I guess if you cut the caramel in half it might be okay...but i dont feel it is worth it.
I made these into tarts instead for christmas. I topped it off with a dollop each of the chocolate topping and finished with a pecan.
Difficult to rate this because I thought it was just average and not a particularly impressive presentation - in my opinion you might as well just soften a few Snickers bars in the micowave. However, my husband thought it was DIVINE and most other guests seemed to enjoy it. I followed the advice of others to reduce the sweet ingredients by 1/4th, used an oreo cookie pie shell and garnished it with whipped cream. It is very easy to prepare and a good desert for a casual dinner or party.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I brought it to my family's Thanksgiving and they couldn't get enough of it! It is wonderfully sweet and very addicting! I can see why it sold in restaurants!
