I was skeptical about the lime juice but holly molly. The vultures at work circled for no more than 5 minutes and it was gone as if it had never been there, plate licked clean!!!!! Seriously... right in front of us, she picked it up and licked it!!!!
I made this cheesecake last night and the results were AMAZING!! I've fed 8 people on it so far and it's been rave reviews all around! The only *slight* change I made was the addition of Skor baking bits to the mini choc chips and pecans - because they're my fave! THANK YOU for this AMAZING recipe!!!!! *Updated 2008* Still a favourite cheesecake that my niece and nephews all request me to make every year on their birthdays! Great recipe!!
This cheesecake is to die for! I get asked for this one all the time. Glad to see it is on here! I make my own chocolate graham crust with 1 pkg grahams, 1/3 c. cocoa, 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 1/3 c. butter/margarine. :) Great stuff! This recipe made it into our book#179809!
Wow! This cheesecake makes me wonder why I would ever waste my time or calories eating another kind of dessert! Absolute decadence! I converted the recipe to cheesecake squares (easier for parties). I baked it in a 9X13 pan for 20 minutes and it came out perfect! I also made the caramel sauce from scratch using the Creamy Caramel Sauce recipe. I drizzed the caramel sauce over the crust before putting the cheesecake mixture into the pan, and then drizzled some on top when it was finished. The creamy caramel sauce adds a buttery taste that combined with the toasted pecans is to die for!
wonderful!!! i have made this several times and it is by far the one family & friends enjoy the most! i add some caramel sauce & pecans right onto the crust before adding the filling. this is definatley a crowd pleaser!!!!! next time i'm going to chop up some turtles and add them to the filling and then swirl in the two different batters. (can't wait!)
I made this for my cousin. She requested a turtle cheesecake & this recipe is awesome. Everyone in my family loves this cheesecake!! I've made this about 5 times & there are never any leftovers...
This cheesecake turned out great! It was pretty easy to make as well, compared to other cheesecakes I have made. Very good recipe, will make again!
This was one of two cheesecakes that I made for a party and this one just disappeared. Everyone really loved it. I liked it very much although I did think it had a bit of a tangy taste to it which isn't bad just different than I'm used to when combining that with chocolate. I also left off the mini chocolate chips and instead used quite a bit of hot chocolate fudge. I also prepared the topping just prior to serving and it came out perfectly.
I made this to take to our daughters home for Christmas dessert. It was definately a hit. Two of us thought there was a hint of raspberry taste for some reason, as there is none in the cheesecake. This will be on the menu from now on. Thanks for posting the recipe, 1Steve.
FANTASTIC!! My daughter requested a turtle cheesecake for her sweet 16 this weekend. We picked this one and WOW! Thanks for this great recipe!
