Turtles Cheesecake

I post very few recipe's on here, 
I have to love them and they usually tend to be about 1400 calories a serving. 
Well with Mother's Day approaching, I thought I would share one of my favorite recipe's my mom makes. 
Let me tell you people, this is a fan favorite.
When she makes it, our family tends to eat it for every meal, including breakfast,
 it usually doesn't last that long though.

Also I have been on a diet for the past two months, 
no carbs, no sugar (not even sugar in ketchup or bbq or things like that) 
This is coming from a girl who HAD TO/ MUST have dessert after every meal. 
(That is for another post though)
Well my diet officially ends on Thursday, and although I want to keep my healthy habits up, 
I am rewarding myself with one treat, I have been thinking all week about what I want my
first treat in two months to be and I think this will be the winner.

So for a delicious, amazing, rich dessert that is a sure crowd pleaser, refer to this recipe:

TURTLES CHEESECAKE

(Use a Springform tin for best results)

1ST LAYER-Oreo Crust
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup oreo baking crumbs
1/4 cup sugar

Mix oreo crubs and sugar together
Melt butter, pour into crumbs and mix
Spread mixture into bottom of pan and pack down
Bake at 375 degrees for 4 minutes

2ND LAYER-Caramel

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 Cup Butter
4 TBSP. Corn Syrup
1 Cup Brown Sugar

Put all ingredients in sauce pan over medium-high heat
Stir constantly. Boil to soft-ball stage (usually anywhere from 6-8 minutes)
IF YOU COOK IT TOO LONG IT WILL BE TOO HARD
Take it off heat, cool it and the pour over oreo crust.

3RD LAYER-Crushed Pecans

Place crushed Pecans over caramel layer
Use as many or as little as you want
(I usually do half a bag)

4TH LAYER-Chocolate Cheesecake

6 Squares of semi-sweet chocolate or about 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
2 TBSP. Milk
4 TBSP. sugar
1 8 OZ. PKG Cream Cheese (room temp.)
1 Tub of Cool Whip (Sometimes I only use 1/2 tub, depending on how stiff you want it)

Melt chocolate and milk together and let cool. 
Beat cream cheese by itself until smooth then add sugar and beat that in
Add cooled chocolateFold in whipping cream
I like to refrigerate it for 1/2 hour after this, so it is quite stiff. Pour it over pecan layer

5TH LAYER-REAL Whipped CREAM

Do not put on this layer until right before you serve it!

1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
3 TBSP. sugar
1/2 TBSP. Vanilla Extract

Whip together till it forms soft peaks and spread over cheesecake layer
Refrigerate until you serve it.
Garnish with chocolate curls!

BEST IF MADE THE DAY BEFORE.
