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 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.
