Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

An elderly client of my husband used to travel to Toronto at least once a year and he always brought my daughters a bag of chocolate turtles as a present. After he passed away I adopted this recipe to remember him by. My girls call this Marvin's Cheesecake.

I apologize for posting this rating so late (I truly thought I already ). I made this for my family at Thanksgiving and it was fantastic! It has become a holiday tradition after one time. The family is demanding it again for Christmas and upcoming birthdays. To me, this is the way cheesecake should be. If I could give it six stars, I definately would.
