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!”
"A rich fudge layer plus crunchy nuts and coconut make this dessert perfect for when you want to serve something special without last-minute fuss," says Barb Seibenaler of Random Lake, Wisconsin. "It's easy to make the day before and freeze overnight."
From Thorp, Wisconsin, Miriam Miller sends this creamy five-ingredient treat. Loaded with chocolate flavor and a hint of peppermint, frosty servings are great for small get-togethers. Store any leftovers in the freezer for whenever your sweet tooth comes calling.
Meet the Cook: If you're expecting company or simply want a convenient on-hand dessert, try this. It's easy, but people will think that you slaved for hours to make it.
The nearest store is over 10 miles from our log house. So I've learned to improvise in the kitchen! My husband and I have two daughters, 18 and 16.

An original recipe of mine, this cool and crunchy concoction has won prizes in a couple of recipe contests. Everyone agrees the fun mix of chocolate, crushed cookies, whipping cream and nuts makes a tempting alternative to ice cream.
Served between your favorite bakery cookies, the easy ice cream in this recipe makes an irresistible dessert. The recipe comes together in a matter of minutes, then cools in your freezer for yummy enjoyment any time.—Megumi Garcia, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
