Turtle Cheesecake

Turtle Cheesecake - Blog Chef

1 ¾ cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs  (crushed)
½ cup melted butter (or margarine)
3 (8 oz) packages of softened cream cheese
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons caramel sundae syrup
½ cup pecans (chopped)
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees and grease a 9 inch spring form pan. Combine Chocolate graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl. Press mixture onto the bottom and 1 inch up the side of the spring form pan.

In a bowl beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until its smooth. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Beat together until fully mixed.

Microwave chocolate morsels in 10 second intervals until morsels are just melted. Stir 2 cups of cheesecake batter into the melted morsels.  Then spoon separate batters alternatively into the crust. Start with the batter without the morsels, then with the morsels, and end with the batter without the morsels.

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cheesecake is set (when the center moves just slightly). When cheesecake is done, cool completely. After the cheesecake is cooled top with chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, pecans, and chocolate morsels.
