Featured Recipe: Chocolate Turtle Ice Cream Cups
There is something about the combination of chocolate, pecan and caramel that makes my mouth water. The traditional Turtle Candy is my favorite confection and anytime I see the delicious ooey-gooey combination in a dessert, I know it will be simply divine.
Two years ago, the Pillsbury Bake-off ® winning recipe was a raspberry-vanilla ice cream cup that not only was tasty and creative, it was down right precious. After being at the 2010 Bake-off ®and meeting the Million Dollar winner, Sue Compton, I prepared her ice cream cups several times that summer as a entertaining dessert.
But this summer I wanted something similar but different. And after experimenting with different flavor combinations, hit on this terrific and all time winning, at least in my book, combination of chocolate, caramel and pecan. It is the perfect mid-summer treat for you and your family, or at a special celebration. They can be made up to 24 hours before hand; just keep them in the freezer until 5 minutes before serving.

What you're saying..
Your column and Web site have been a lifesaver for me many times. After 50 years of cooking 3 times a day for a family I feel like a novice, no confidence! Keep up the good work of educating young and old.
