For Michelle, from Del Valle Fest.

Ingredients

2 cups Pecan Sandies cookie crumbs
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
14 ounces individually wrapped caramels
1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 ½ cup chopped pecan
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp cooking oil

Directions:

Melt the butter or margarine, and combine with the cookie crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.

Melt the caramels with the evaporated milk in a 1 1/2 quart heavy saucepan over low heat. Heat and stir frequently until smooth. Pour caramel sauce into crust, and top with 1 cup of the chopped pecans. Place in refrigerator to cool.

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla; beat well until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour batter over pecans

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 minutes. Loosen cake from the edges of pan, but do not remove rim until cooled. Chill completely

Sprinkle top with ½ cup chopped pecans.

Melt 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 tsp cooking oil. Put in zip lock baggie and let cool for a few minutes. Cut small corner off baggie and drizzle zig zag patterns in different directions.

I cheat and buy mine at Sam's Club. It sits in the freezer and takes months to eat. ;D

Mmmmmmm, there's enough nuts and caramel in there to entice even THIS non-cheesecake fan! :)

With a stiff cup of black coffee, I'll be set! ;)

TRD I am bringing that one to the fest at Pyramid in April and Dave, I have made the Turtle Cheesecake the last time I went to Wisconsin to see my son. He gave me the recipe about 4 years ago. I can't make it sugarfree for ODDIE so I just haven't made it lately.
