Ingredients

  • 10 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon no-trans-fat 68% vegetable oil spread stick, melted
  • 3 cups chocolate reduced-fat ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1/2 cup fat-free hot fudge topping

  • 3 cups vanilla reduced-fat ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1/4 cup fat-free caramel topping

    In small bowl, mix wafer cookie crumbs and melted vegetable oil spread until crumbly. Press gently and evenly in bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Freeze 30 minutes.
  • 2
    Drop chocolate ice cream by small spoonfuls over crust; carefully spread until smooth. Freeze 1 hour or until firm.
  • 3
    Spoon and carefully spread fudge topping over ice cream. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of the pecans; press lightly. Freeze 1 hour or until firm.
  • 4
    Drop vanilla ice cream by small spoonfuls over pecan layer; carefully spread until smooth. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup pecans. Cover; freeze at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 5

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • tip 2
    Be sure to drop the ice cream by small spoonfuls so that spreading it is minimal and you don't disturb the preceding layers.
  • tip 3
    Pecans are traditional for turtle desserts, but walnuts or cashews are just as delicious.
