Snickers and Turtles Pie – Snickurtle Pie

snickurtle pie

Snickers and Turtles Pie. Can we call it Snickurtle ???

I don’t know what/who/how to name this pie… it’s a pie where a snickers bar and a turtle candy meet and make a baby. 

Then their baby is frozen.

And then that baby will soon become your new favorite ice cream/pie/cheesecake.

But there isn’t an actual snickers bar nor a turtle candy in there. It’s all homemade.

Look at that delicious mess!

I got this recipe from a friend’s mom. She brought this pie to my Bridal Shower few years back, and I just about died! I saw heaven as soon as I bit into it. (I really hope that there’s frozen pies in heaven…keeping my fingers crossed.)

I hunted her down a few days after my shower and we finally got her mom to give up the recipe. I thought it was going to be this extensive recipe with some intimidating method that I was going to be afraid to try… thank goodness it was none of that. It is soooo easy! The hardest part is waiting for it to freeze.

Like 5 hours. But it’s worth it!

The first time I made it I inhaled it; no surprise there.

The next time I made it my dad and I wolfed it down in one sitting. Two forks, one pie, and a father-daughter conversation.

We plan to repeat that today. The pie is in the freezer – chillin’.

Servings : 8 servings
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours
Total Time 4 hours


  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs or Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter , melted
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 cups thawed whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans , toasted and divided
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping + more for drizzling on top
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons melted chocolate for topping


  • In a mixing bowl, combine your choice of Graham cracker or Oreo crumbs with melted butter for the crust. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter until well combined.
  • Toast the pecans over medium heat on the stovetop for about 3 minutes. Shake them frequently so that they don’t burn. Immediately remove the toasted pecans from the pan and set them aside to cool.
  • Next, beat the whipped topping and half of the toasted pecans into the cream cheese mixture until combined.
  • Spread 1/4 cup of caramel ice cream topping in an even layer over the bottom of the cookie crust.
  • Add the cream cheese filling and spread it evenly on top of the caramel.
  • Place the pie into the freezer to chill for 3 hours.
  • Take the pie out of the freezer and sprinkle the remaining pecans over the top.
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between until smooth. Use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate over the pie.
  • Once the pie is topped with chocolate, drizzle on the caramel topping.
  • Return the pie to the freezer for 1 hour, until set.
  • Serve.
  • Store this pie airtight in the freezer.

      Hi Natalie! Whipped topping is also called Cool Whip. You will need 2 cups, thawed, for this recipe. I hope that helps!

    My fave ice cream is actually frozen yogurt with peanut butter cups in them… and so, my love of frozen versions of chocolate bars was born. I’d love to try this, but one question: what do you think would be the effect of subbing whipping cream for the whipped topping? and same about just caramel instead of caramel topping? I’d rather go all natural if I can…

        Hi!! This recipe is from 2011, and that is why I didn’t see the comment. Thank you for bringing the question to my attention!! I think those are great ideas and it would work, except for the caramel… homemade caramel won’t freeze (which makes you question why caramel topping does hehe ;-)) but if you’re okay with it not being completely solid, then it’s all good. :))

  2. Great pie and very easy to make!!!! Next time I might try peanuts instead of pecans. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    There’s not going to be any peace in this house until one of us – guess who – is able to sit down on the couch and devour this while watching Wimbledon. Not sure there will be a second spoon allowed. Your father’s a lucky man! Happy belated Father’s day.

    Too funny. I WANT to eat that baby! You really can’t go wrong with caramel, chocolate and cream cheese. 🙂

  11. Seriously gorgeous. I expect we will see it on Top 9! Funny, I made an ice cream pie yesterday for my husband for father’s day. Guess it’s that time of year!

  12. Ohhh I love anything with caramel and nuts! And if it ice cream, even better! This pie looks so scrumptious! I wish it was summer to try it right now!!!

    This looks absolutely decadent! And what a show-stopper, too! Would definitely steal the limelight at any party. 🙂

  14. Wow. Just. Wow. I think I know just the person to make it for too. It looks like so much fun, I wish we had the oreo cookie crumbs in Australia though. One day, I’m sure we will!

    I think you should just name this pie DELICIOUS!! Great job Kate! This looks so yummy. I love frozen pies!

  16. The top of that pie looks like a piece of art! Gorgeous! And I can see why waiting for it to freeze would be the hard part!

    Great name! I am glad that you were able to get the recipe to share with us. Snickers and Turtles sound like a match made in heaven.

  18. I’d definitely eat the whole pie if I had it in front of me! This is the perfect combination of ingredients! And turtles? My favorite :).

  19. LOVE the name! (I just posted a dish with a mash up name too :D)… and love the delicious mess! 😉

  20. Your snickurtle pie looks wonderful. I was going to make a snickers no bake pie this weekend for Father’s Day, but my son was jumping up and down for me to make a Whopper pie (which I did and he loved). I am not a fan of Whoppers, but I do love snickers and turtle candies. So I I would be jumping up and own for your pie. I love that you freeze it too…. makes it more of a summer dessert. Great Job and fabulous pictures as always.

    This looks beyond heavenly. Great call with the Oreo crust. Ice cream pies are my favorite even though it is really hard to convince my husband that anything besides an Apple pie is worth trying!
