Turtle Ice Cream is loaded with delicious chocolate, pecans, and caramel swirls. This easy to make ice cream is better than anything you can buy!

In a medium bowl, whisk together your egg yolks and sugar for about 2-3 minutes, until smooth and pale in color.

Whisk in your milk to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the milk to a simmer and then remove from the heat. Do not boil.

Whisking constantly, add a ½ cup of your hot milk to the yolk and sugar mixture, whisk until combined.

Add the tempered egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with your remaining hot milk. Mix in your salt.

Add your heavy cream and vanilla extract to your mix, stir to combine.

When ready, churn your ice cream mixture in the bowl of your ice cream machine according to your manufacturer’s instructions.

In the last two minutes, add in your chopped chocolate and toasted pecans. Churn until they are evenly distributed.

Spoon half of your ice cream into a shallow container or a loaf pan.

Top with half of the caramel sauce and swirl with a spoon. Repeat with your remaining ice cream and caramel sauce.

Press plastic wrap the surface of the ice cream. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or until solid.

To serve, allow ice cream to sit at room temperature for at least 5 minutes. Scoop and enjoy!
