Turtle Pie Truffles Recipe

Easter is on it’s way!  I love holidays with big family gatherings full of love and food.  Typically I try to have two desserts on hand for holidays: one chocolate and one non-chocolate.  This is what I came up with for my chocolate dessert for Easter this year:

Turtle Pie Truffles

I’ll let you in on a little secret: These are so simple to make because I took a big shortcut.  I started with an EDWARDS® Turtle Crème Pie.  I picked up my turtle pie while doing my shopping at Walmart.  You can find it in the Desserts area of the Frozen Section.

EDWARDS® Turtle Crème Pie has a chocolate cookie crust, a creamy center, chocolate, caramel, and pecans.

Everyone who knows me well knows I love ice cream cakes and cream pies.  I’ll be honest… sometimes I buy EDWARDS® pies for no occasion at all and eat a slice each day until they are gone.  Ok, my husband will probably tell you sometimes I have more than one slice per day… and he’s not lying.

So here’s how I used my EDWARDS® Turtle Crème Pie to make Turtle Pie Truffles:


all of the ingredients

  • EDWARDS® Turtle Crème Pie
  • chocolate candy coating
  • caramel chips
  • pecan halves
  1. Pull the pie out of the pie plate and place in a large bowl.pie in the bowl

2. Crush the pie and try to mix it up, distributing everything evenly.  You want to make sure you don’t have super huge pieces of cookie crust.

3. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the pie mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

4. Put the cookie sheet into the freezer for an hour.

5. Pull the cookie sheet out from the freezer.  Melt your chocolate candy coating.  Melt your caramel chips.  Use a toothpick to dip each ball of pie mixture into the chocolate candy coating and put the balls back down onto the parchment paper.

6. Push a pecan half onto the top of each ball while the chocolate coating is still soft.

7. Drizzle a little caramel over the top.

8. Put the truffles back into the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

When you are ready to serve the turtle truffles get them out of the freezer.  Let them soften for about 5 minutes but don’t wait too long to eat them or they will begin to melt!

In order to have a second dessert option I’ll pair my turtle pie truffles with a MRS. SMITH’S® Original Flaky Crust Dutch Apple Pie.  My husband loves apple pie but with all the other dishes to prepare for Easter I won’t have time to do all the peeling and slicing needed to make my usual apple pie recipe.  You should try MRS. SMITH’S® pies as a special treat for your loved ones.

As if the convenience of Edwards and Mrs. Smith’s pies weren’t tempting enough, there are currently Ibotta rebates going for both Edwards and Mrs Smith’s so  be sure to check those out for some extra savings when you get your pies for Easter or for any day when you want to treat your family (or yourself!).

Such a smart idea to use an already made dessert to create a new one! Plus they are bite-size so you could make different flavors and enjoy a few desserts.
