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. Then there is the rich and creamy chocolate layer. Oh my. Then there is the whipped cream on the top. It really adds something, so don’t leave it off. If you do anything, add extra.
