Pumpkin Pie Makeover! Turtle Pumpkin Pie

In the mail recently I got a recipe with the coupons section that was worth clipping and trying. This concoction sounded too decadent to pass up. I think the recipe comes from Jell-o.

1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. caramel ice cream topping, divided (use the squeeze or jarred syrup)
1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp chopped pecans
1 cup milk
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
DIVIDE: 1 tub (80z.) Cool Whip

Pour 1/4 cup caramel topping in the bottom of the crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Beat dry pudding mix, milk, pumpkin, spices with whisk until well blended. Stir in 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip. Spoon this onto the crust. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Top with the rest of the whipped cream and nuts, drizzle remaining caramel over the top.

Side Note: How funny that a girl like me who doesn't particularly care for sweets enjoys making them for others....anyone else like there, please speak up...feeling a little weird here. :)
