This is a recipe from the Nestle people (makers of Turtles candy) I found it in a grocery store flyer. It is really yummy!

- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 (8 ounce) packages light cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3⁄4 cup regular evaporated milk (such as carnation)
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 14 turtles chocolate decorative candies, chopped
- Crust: Preheat oven to 300°.
- Stir together graham cracker crumbs, pecans, butter & sugar in a bowl until well combined; press into bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
- Bake 12 minutes or until golden & firm;refrigerate until chilled.
- Filling: Beat cream cheese, sugar & vanilla until smooth.
- Beat in eggs & flour.
- Gradually beat in evaporated milk and the sour cream.

- Run a sharp knife around edge of pan; remove pan edges.
- *This cheesecake is nice decorated on top with additional turtle snackin' size candies (in a circular pattern nearly to the outer edge of cake, or (three candies placed triangle fashion) in the middle, or both!) and dripped melted chocolate and/or dripped melted caramels.
wow. my mouth is still watering..... i had to spend $30 on all the groceries and the springfoam pan, but it was well worth it. it was delicious. very rich, and very filling. it will probably last at least 2 days (that's saying alot for my house)i put extra pecans on top and also chocolate and caramel topping. AWESOME!!!
