Chocolate Turtle Pie – a layer of salted peanuts and caramel topped with creamy chocolate mousse, finished off with whipped cream. A decadent and delightful chocolate pie!
Chocolate, caramel, and nuts is always a winning combination in my book. This decadent pie features all three, so of course I love it. The salty peanut/sweet caramel layer is so good I almost licked the bowl clean after I poured it in the crust. I said almost, don’t turn your nose up at me.
This pie is so good that my husband and I waited to eat the leftovers till our boys were at school so we wouldn’t have to share with them. Shhh, please don’t tell.
