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’.
