This is truly my husbands favorite mini dessert. He loves that instant real cheesecake mix and it always turns out wonderful. How can you go wrong with chocolate, cheesecake, caramel and pecan. Just makes my mouth water writing about this.
4 squares Semi sweet baking chocolate
1 package (11 ounce) No Bake Real Cheesecake
2 Tablespoons Sugar
5 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tsp Cold milk, divided
24 Pecan halves
12 (2-1/2 inch) Baking cups
Oven Temp ~
Baking Time ~ microwave
Pan Type ~ muffin pan
Melt 2 of the chocolate squares as directed on package, set aside to cool. Meanwhile, mix the No-Bake Cheesecake Crust Mix, sugar and margarine with fork until well blended. Place (2-1/2-inch) Baking Cups in medium muffin pan; spoon the crumbs evenly into baking cups. Press firmly onto bottom of each cup.
Beat 1-1/2 cups milk and the Filling Mix with electric mixer on low speed just until moistened. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes (filling will be thick).
Remove 1/4 cup of the filling, place in small bowl, add melted chocolate, stir with wire whisk until well blended. Return this mixture back into the remaining plain filling, stir gently until well blended. Spoon evenly into prepared cups. Top each with 2 of the pecan halves, set aside.
Microwave caramels and remaining 2 teaspoons milk in small microwaveable bowl, on high 1 minute; stir until caramels are completely melted. Set aside. Place remaining 2 chocolate squares in another small microwaveable bowl. Microwave until melted, following directions on package. Drizzle melted caramels and chocolate evenly over turtle cheesecakes. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Store leftover mini turtle cheesecakes in refrigerator.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
