Turtle Cheesecake Pie

Turtle Cheesecake Pie | Cooking on the Front Burner

Today I'm sharing one of the DIY Guy's favorite sweet treat combos with this Turtle Cheesecake Pie.  I'm not sure if any of you have Culver's in your area but that is usually where he heads to get his fix with a sundae.  So for Father's Day I decided to try making it more of a dessert with a no-bake cheesecake topped with all the goodies!

Earlier this week I shared the grilled veggie flatbread we had for an appetizer and our main course was another of his favorites - Eggplant Parmesan.  This pie was a perfect ending to our meal - cool and refreshing!

I mean who doesn't love a light and fluffy cheesecake - that alone is good but topped with warm drizzles of caramel sauce, hot fudge sauce and a sprinkle of pecans really hits the spot!
