No-Bake Turtle Icebox Cake

Now that warmer weather is FINALLY here, we’re doing more grilling and I’ve switched over to more summer friendly desserts – because actual baking doesn’t happen much in my house this time of year. I’ve been playing around with a lot of icebox cake recipes because everyone loves them and they are about the easiest way to get dessert on the table, don’t you think? A couple weeks ago I shared my Chocolate Eclair Icebox Cake, and today I’m sharing a yummy No-Bake Turtle Icebox Cake.

I absolutely love the caramel/chocolate/pecan combo, don’t you?

chopped pecans

You can use whatever brand of caramel you like, but I’m very partial to Mrs. Richardson’s Butterscotch Caramel topping.

Remember Sugar Daddy candy when you were a kid? Mrs. Richardson’s tastes a lot like that.

Note: I added a bit more Cool Whip from the original recipe because I wanted a lighter texture. This cake tastes like cheesecake (which is awesome), but I thought it was a little dense for summer. It’s delicious either way.
