Turtle Cheesecake
(from Kathryn at Exceeding Abundantly)  
Serves: 12

2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
6 Tbsp unsalted butter
14 ounces individually wrapped caramels (unwrapped)
1 (5 oz) can evaporated milk
1 cup chopped pecans
3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  Butter one 9-inch springform pan.
  • Toast the pecans at 350 degrees F for 6 minutes.  Remove pecans and set aside.  Leave oven at 350 degrees.  In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter.
  • Combine vanilla wafer crumbs with the melted butter then press into the bottom of the prepared springform pan.  Place the pan onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove and allow to cool.
  • In a double boiler, or a bowl set over barely simmering water, melt the caramels in the evaporated milk.  Stir until smooth.  Pour this over the cooled crust.  Sprinkle the nuts over the top.
  • In a bowl, combine the cheese, sugar, and vanilla and beat until smooth, scraping down the bowl several times. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until smooth.  Melt the chocolate chips in the double boiler and mix into the cheese mixture.  Pour the batter over the caramel layer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until barely set.  Chill over night in the refrigerator before serving.

(You don't even want to know how many calories this has:)  Just enjoy some sugar with your honey.

Thanks, Romantic Dinner Bruges! You are so right about a very tested Strawberry Custard Torte! You know how, for awhile, you will use one recipe for every event, or special celebration? Well, this was our recipe for awhile! It always impresses and is also delicious! Lovely on the table.
Thanks so much for commenting!
