This was great! I didn't think it was easy, but I'm a novice dessert maker :) I had a hard time finding caramels, which was weird. I went to two different stores and finally settled on a 10oz bag of Werthers soft caramels. They were good, but what happened to Brachs? The only tricky part for me was melting the chocolate chips, they got kind of chalky and then made the texture of the cheesecake a little less smooth. I think next time I would omit them in the cheesecake part and just have the chocolate ganache on top. Thanks for a delightful birthday recipe for my DH!
I made this for my boss' birthday party and the people at work went ga ga over this! Rich and delicious with all of my favorite ingredients. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try this one and it is now in my special file folder for safe keeping. Amazing cheesecake Sue!
Saw the photo of this on the please review my recipe tag game, and just had to check it out. I love the detailed background info that goes along with this recipe--makes me want to check out the Blue Owl myself, and I'm in Wisconsin! It just sounds like a neat place. I will definitely try this for the holidays! I love the fact that this is a turtle cheesecake with graham crackers and not chocolate wafer cookie crumbs for the crust.
WOWSA! We love cheesecake, and this one definitely was one that was over the top!! Chocolate, caramel, cheesecake, and pecans - what is not to love?! Thanks for sharing, Sue L!
