  1. Ice Cream Turtle Recipe photo by Taste of Home Cut a third off each candy piece, reserving large ends for turtle heads (save small ends for another use). Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; fill with frosting. On each turtle head, secure two vanilla chips with frosting to resemble eyes. Pipe a dot in the center of each chip for pupil; pipe frosting over top of chips for eyelids. Pipe a turtle shell pattern onto waffle bowls; set aside.

  3. Press a licorice piece into ice cream for tail. Place waffle bowl over ice cream, making sure feet and tail show. Position head at opposite end of tail. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 desserts.
