Turtle Cheesecake

Turtle Cheesecake


1 1/4 C. chocolate wafer cookie crumbs

1/4 C. sugar

1/4 C. melted butter

Mix crust ingredients and pat into a 9 or 10 inch spring-form pan. Bake 10 minutes at 350°F. As soon as it comes from the oven sprinkle 1 C. chocolate chips over bottom. Put back in oven for 3 minutes. Take a pastry brush and spread chocolate chips over bottom crust. Sprinkle 1/2 C. of toasted pecans over chocolate. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you make the filling.


24 oz. cream cheese

1 1/2 C. sugar

3 eggs

1/2 C. sour cream

12 oz. melted chocolate

1 t. vanilla

1/2 lb. turtle candy chopped

Mix cream cheese and sugar together, blending well. Add eggs one at a time. Add sour cream, vanilla, then add melted chocolate. Add the chopped candy. Pour filling on crust.

Heat oven and add 8 C. boiling water to a pan and place on bottom oven shelf. This will provide moisture.

Bake at 400°F. for 15 minutes, turn oven down to 225°F. and bake another 50 minutes, or until center is set. Turn oven off and let cheesecake set with oven door cracked 1 hour. Chill.

Serve with a Carmel or Chocolate Sauce. (or both)
