#3465 - Pecan Turtle Pie

(by Shirley McNevich)

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 - ready-made graham cracker crust (regular OR chocolate)
1/2 cup pecan halves
2 - 3.5oz. boxes Jell-O chocolate INSTANT pudding mixes
2 cup ice cold milk
2 cups Cool Whip (thawed)
Hershey's chocolate syrup

Spread the caramel ice cream topping over the bottom of the graham cracker crust. Measure the 1/2 cup pecan halves, remove 8-10 of them (set aside), and chop the remaining pecan halves left in the measuring cup. Sprinkle the chopped pecans evenly over the caramel. In a mixer add both boxes of pudding mix and the cold milk--beat on low until mixed, then beat on high until thickened. Remove bowl from mixer--add 1 cup of the Cool Whip--stir until mixed. Pour the chocolate pudding mixture into the crust. Refrigerate the pie a few hours until firm. When ready to serve spread the remaining 1 cup of Cool Whip over the top, arrange the saved 10 pecans halves over the Cool Whip and drizzle Hershey's chocolate syrup over the top.
