This dessert is a classic Thanksgiving, Christmas or even Easter pie, but it doesn’t have to be a traditional holiday dessert. You don’t need a holiday to bake it. You can make it anytime, any day. It’s even good to have in the fridge and serve after dinner.

Who doesn’t love dessert? Everyone loves a slice of pie after a good home-cooked meal. But this time, it doesn’t need to be store-bought. You can bake your own! 

This Chocolate Pecan Turtle Pie is topped with caramel chips, chocolate-covered pretzels, pecans and chocolate chips. The last step is the decadent melted chocolate chips poured over the top of the crust. Chocolate, Pecans, and Caramel come together in an absolutely delicious turtle pie.

It won’t be long before your family fights over the last slice. Every time you make it, it’s going to be an argument because it’s just that good. You have to try it! Even if you aren’t a huge fan of pie, this is one of those you absolutely will love. It’s creamy, crunchy, sweet, and salty, making it an incredible dessert.

It’s suitable for every last drop, from the crunchy crust to the yummy filling and the traditional candy. 

Unlike other pies, you can make this one ahead, and it will still be just as good as if you were baking it the day of your event. Sitting in the fridge does not change the texture at all.
