Mixed Nut Turtle Pies
No bake mini mixed nut turtle pies with 2 layers of mixed nuts and a rich chocolate filling, all topped with chocolate and caramel!
Things have been kind of nutty around here lately :)
Maybe it has something to do with the massive amount of acorn treats we’ve been eating! And today is no exception because we have another nutty recipe to share!
Too bad it’s not another cute acorn treat, but it is a no bake pie, and that is equally as good!
If there is one thing I really dislike doing, it would be making my own pie crust. Maybe it’s because I grow up in the age where pre-made pie crust was readily available, and who really has time to make a homemade pie crust when you’re already making a whole pie?
And they wouldn’t sell pie crusts at the grocery store if they weren’t good. Consumers determine supply, and there is never a shortage of pie crusts at my grocery store, so people must be buying them. And I am buying them too because I love that half of the work is already done for me.
So #1: this recipe uses pre-made mini pie shells which means it saves you time!
And the other selling point? It’s no bake!! So this recipe will save you space in your oven and you get to eat the pie sooner :)
And the final selling point? This pie is all about the chocolate and nuts! Thank you, Mom, for sharing your love for chocolate and nuts with me. I now fully appreciate the deliciousness of a Mr. Goodbar :)
If you’re planning on having a small dinner or dessert party, this would be a fantastic dessert to make! The recipe will make 6 mini pies – which is perfect for sharing with 5 friends or perfect for keeping them all to yourself and eating on 6 different days of the week :)
Mixed Nut Turtle Pies
- 6 mini pre-made pie shells
- ½ to ¾ cup mixed nuts, peanuts, pecans, and almonds
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- 1 ½ tbsp heavy cream
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 6 tbsp powdered sugar
- Caramel sauce, to drizzle
- Hot fudge sauce, to drizzle
- Put 1 tsp of mixed nuts in each pie shell.
- Combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until the chocolate chips are melted. Turn the burner off and set aside.
- In a bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and beat using a hand mixer until fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture and beat for an additional minute, or until the chocolate is incorporated.
- Evenly divide this mixture between the pie shells. I used 2 spoons to help distribute and smooth the cream cheese mixture once in the pie shells.
- Top each pie with about 1 & 1/2 tsp of mixed nuts, place in the refrigerator to set for 1 hour.
- Before serving, top each pie with caramel sauce and hot fudge.
These look fantastic! Those little pre-made pie crusts are great for portion control too!
I totally agree :)
Shut the front door! No really .. because if you have these in your house I would eat them all! Loving that these pies are no bake too!
Hahaa, you are too funny Krista!
In this busy time of year no bake sounds pretty good to me! I love your food styling in these photos! Beautiful!
Especially this time of year I love no bakes, but I think I love no bakes all year round :) – Thank you Kristine!
Adorable, delicious and easy to make? Score! These would be absolutely fantastic for a holiday goodie table! Lovely!
Why have just a slice of pie when you can have a WHOLE pie!!
love the ease of this no-bake recipes. I am going to have to check out those shells. My husband would really love this too!
You’ve never used those shells Ginny?!
I love these pies! Especially since they are no bake! Pinning!
Thanks for pinning Sheena!
I was laughing out loud at your first line…nutty around here. Loving all these fall inspired treats and how can I turn down nuts and chocolate?! Just as close to PB and chocolate you can get ;)
Hahaa, I suppose you are right, peanut butter is a nut before you start :)
I’m a big turtle fan Beth, so these tarts have my name written all over them. They look so good! I’m beginning to really crave nuts after following your blog the past week ;)
Oh! So you’re feeling a little nutty? :)
These are so cute and now you don’t have to slice pie and mess it up!
You are so right!! I hate slicing pie when I have to take pictures of it!
OMG what is this??? Please, I need one of this pie right now… better I need a dozen of this pie. What an awesome dessert my dear!! Love, love love!!
Awww, one dozen coming your way :)
These are gorgeous Beth! I love how they are simple, easy and no bake!
These pies are beautiful, Beth! Love that they’re no-bake!
Me too :)
These little beauties are right up my alley-no bake and easy! I had no idea they even made mini pre-made pie crusts; this could totally alter the way I approach pie-making (I haven’t made a regular pie in years, but the idea of cutting up apples for tiny pies isn’t nearly so daunting.) The only downside is that in this house there wouldn’t be such a thing as eating only 1 pie a day. Are you really that disciplined? I guess that’s why you’re skinny and I’m not. Anyway, thanks for this user-friendly and yummy recipe!
Hi Roberta! I suppose it helps that I am usually not home during the day, but my sweet tooth seems to kick in right after dinner! I probably enjoy something sweet everyday, but my stomach can be sensitive so I usually don’t go for seconds in one sitting :)
These look so decadent and delicious! Thanks for sharing!
You are very welcome Jenn, enjoy!
