Graham cracker crust:
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs finely ground (a food processor works well for this)
1/4 cup white sugar
6 T melted butter
Mix ingredients well and press into an 8 or 9 inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 minutes. Cool.
Turtle Pie:
Spread 1/3 c. salted caramel ice cream topping (we used Trader Joe's) on bottom of pie pan. Sprinkle 1/2 c. chopped pecans on the caramel.
Fill pie with this:
2 pkgs instant chocolate pudding mix whisked with
2 cups cold milk
Then add:
2 cups Cool Whip
Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours
When firm add the glaze:
2 oz chocolate chips melted with
1 cup Cool Whip (if using the microwave do this very slowly and be careful not to overdo this)

Whisk it till shiny then spread over pie.


Make a turtle on top out of any last bit of Cool Whip mounded up in a turtle-shaped heap. Decorate with pecan halves for shell, legs, head, and tail.
