Chocolate Turtle Ice Cream Pie
When the temperature is soaring in Hemet, California, turning on the oven to bake dessert is the last thing Margaret Wilson wants to do. Instead, she relies on fabulous freezer pies like this one. “The chocolaty turtle flavor will wow your family and friends,” she promises. “And they’d never believe how easy it is to make!”
