Move Over Ice Cream!
This Summer has been super hot and I've been craving frozen sweet treats. But sometimes, ice cream can get a bit boring. Especially for entertaining. Move over ice cream, there's a new frozen dessert in town! I'm so excited about this Easy Turtle Pie Icebox Cake made with frozen Turtle Pie. It's so simple to make and super impressive to serve at your next BBQ or family gathering instead of ice cream.
Surprise! There's a Turtle Pie Inside the Cake
I love that this no-bake icebox cake actually contains 2 entire frozen Turtle Pies sandwiched between layers of chocolate wafers and whipped créme! It's like a magic trick. A pie inside a cake AND it's a frozen dessert! Such an awesome combo!
How to Make Easy Turtle Pie Icebox Cake
1) Line a 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap, then add the parchment paper on the sides (forming a ring).
2) Cover the bottom of the pan with chocolate wafers.
3) Add a layer of frozen whipped topping that's been thawed.
4) Carefully place 1 Turtle Pie on top of whipped topping.
5) Repeat steps 2-4.
6) Add one more layer of wafers and whipped topping on top. Freeze for 4 hours.
7) Remove dessert to a serving plate, frost with more whipped topping. Freeze 2 hours.
8) Garnish with chocolate drizzles, plus dollops of whipped topping on top and pecan halves around base of cake.
And voila! You have yourself one gorgeous Turtle Pie Icebox Cake!

Easy Turtle Pie Icebox Cake
- 2 packages chocolate wafer cookies
- 32 ounces frozen whipped topping thawed
- 2 turtle pies from the freezer section
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil I used olive oil
- pecan halves for garnish
- Line a 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap, then add the parchment paper on the sides (forming a ring). Arrange a layer of wafer cookies. Spread 1-2 cups of whipped topping on top of the cookies, spreading out to the edges of the pan.
- Gently press one frozen pie into the whipped topping. Repeat this process (wafers, whipped topping, pie). Add another layer of wafers and top with whipped topping. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
- Take it out of freezer and frost top and sides of cake with more whipped topping. Use an angled cake spatula to smooth the sides, if desired. Return to freezer for 2 hours. Transfer to a cake plate before adding chocolate drizzles.
For the chocolate drizzles
- Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Add oil and stir. The chocolate should be a bit soupy. Let cool for about 30 minutes. Add a little more oil if it's too thick. Drizzle onto frozen cake.
For the garnish
- Add dollops of whipped topping (I used a pastry bag fitted with a 1M tip) on top of cake and a border of pecan halves around the base of the cake. Serve immediately or store in freezer. Let cake sit for about 20 minutes befoer cutting.

Hi, this looks lovely! I have a question. I think of icebox cakes as being stored in the fridge, not the freezer. Does this have to be a frozen dessert or could it be kept in the fridge, cold, but not frozen?
Lise Ode says
This is actually a freezer dessert.
