Thank you Edwards® Desserts for sponsoring this post. Head to the frozen desserts aisle of your grocery store to pick up your favorite Edwards pie!
Indulge yourself with this ultimate dessert recipe, Turtle Pie Sundae! It’s made with homemade mochi waffle, whipped cream, fresh banana, cherry, strawberries, and delicious Edwards® Turtle Pie. Edward Turtle Pie is a go-to for me as the filling has a mix of caramel, pecans, chocolate, and the whipped crème rosettes. The chocolate cookie crumb crust is heavenly.
Turtle Pie Sundae – Getting Creative With Desserts
If you follow my blog you know that I like to mix up traditional recipes with ingredients that aren’t always expected. I pursue that “wow” reaction, as I myself am always looking for the new and exciting. One area where people are a little too shy about straying from the norms is in desserts. I guess it makes sense… mix in some different ingredients in a stir-fry and you’ve got a new dish, but mix in some new ingredients in a dessert where things are carefully measured and timed and you could have a disaster on-hand. Today, I am going to show you how to make this Turtle Pie sundae.
Replacing Ice Cream with Edwards
I’ve found a great solution to this, one that will impress your family, guests and your own taste buds. Next time a recipe calls for ice cream swap it out with Edwards. You will be a hero for it! This isn’t the minor change that’s almost expected of replacing a scoop of vanilla with one that’s chocolate. Nope, this change will rock your dessert and elevate it to fun new levels.
I mean, just look at this gorgeous Edwards Turtle Pie and tell me that doesn’t look phenomenal! I’ve been a fan of a dessert I created for a Turtle Pie sundae. I swapped the pie in-place of the simple scoops of ice cream at my kids’ get-together last weekend and I don’t think those kids will ever go back to having it without it the Edwards.
Turtle Pie Sundae Ingredients
For this recipe, I try to keep it simple. It started with a craving for some waffle ice cream cone, so I decided to make my own mochi waffle and finish up with Edwards pie and fresh berries, also a bit whip cream. It has a unique taste, is a hit with kids and adults, and is actually easy to prepare.
No Melting Mess
With ice cream, it’s always a race against time to get the scoops in or on the rest of the dessert, snag a photo of the dessert if you’re lucky, and try to pass them out before melting. This window is usually just a few minutes and oftentimes ends up with that ice cream soup on half your plate. Edwards has been a great way to get around that which is great for me as I’m usually the one not only making the desserts but also serving them. Especially in these summer months and warmer climates which I happen to live in I see and have been through all too many losing battles against the ice cream melt.
Dessert Decoration Included
Another nice benefit of using Edwards in-place of ice cream is that your dessert gets an immediate upgrade in its presentation. I have friends that have been on the cake decorating shows on TV and that takes a very special talent that very few of us possess! I can use all of the help I can get in that department, and the EDWARDS® Cookies and Crème Pie, EDWARDS® REESE’S®** Crème Pie, and of course the EDWARDS® Turtle Pie pictured here all look spectacular (even just on a cone). They enable you to instantly jazz up your own dessert without all of the sweat and panic that usually comes with this tall task in the kitchen.
Party at your Party!
With more wow-factor, less prep time to make something beautiful, and without the ice cream mess, I have more time to indulge and enjoy. I also have more time to party, as quite often it is a birthday party, barbeque or pot-luck where I’m enjoying a dessert. A great man (or four of them) once said “I get by with a little help from my friends” and that is definitely the case here. I can create a dessert that stands out, then have time to enjoy it alongside everyone else! I love bringing creativity into my meals, but that doesn’t mean I always have to start from scratch every time, and neither do you!
