How to Make Turtle Tart

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, water and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in 1 cup pecans. Press dough in bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with bottom that you can remove.
  2. bake 19-21 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave caramels and 1/3 cup cream on High 2 to 4 minutes, stirring twice, until caramels are melted. Stir in 3/4 cup pecans. Spread over cooled crust. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  4. In another med. microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and 1/3 cup cream on high 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is smooth. Pour over filling. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup pecans. Refrigerate 2 hours or until set. To serve, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before cutting. Store covered in refrigerator.
  5. *If you do not have a tart pan..use a 9 by 13 inch pan and cut into squares, instead of wedges.

    Also, I used a tart pan that didn't have a bottom that was removeable...and it worked out fine. Just cut into wedges right from the tart dish.
