Reviews for House of Plenty's Turtle Pie
"This is really good and very easy to make. I used fat-free cream cheese and a Keebler chocolate crust. The crust added a little crunch to the texture, and more chocolate never hurts. I'll definitely make this pie again."
"I haven't made this yet but I used to work there and this as well as their Cherry Pie are my absolute favorite! Kathy is a culinary genius!:o)"
"I made this for our anniversary and we ended up eating the whole pie in a few days! It tasted best cold and next time I'll try mini chocolate chips."
