    I made this for our school year end party and to say it was a big hit is an understatement. It got nothing but raves. It is really easy to make and I will definitely make it again.

    This was my rave dessert at Superbowl last night. The top cracked a little bit, so I whipped up a chocolate ganache and used it to fill in the cracked parts. The only thing I might do different is to use a butterscotch flavor as well as the butterscotch chips to enhance the flavor a little bit. It seemed to de-intensify in flavor after baking. Thanks for posting !

    I am a baker and I made the cheesecake for my customers. They loved it. I found it to be very smooth and creamy. Thanks for the recipe. I did not put the turtles on the cheesecake I only drizzled caramel on the top.

    I had seen this on another site and made it for a Bunko party. It was devoured. I had to ask if they minded if I took a piece home to my husband. LOL!
