Quick and Easy Turtle Cheesecake

I made this recipe a couple of years ago for Thanksgiving and I have been thinking about it a lot recently. I was really hoping to make it this year but the soiree I will be attending will already have PLENTY of desserts. Maybe I will save it for Christmas. I suggest you try it this holiday season!

1 Oreo pie crust
16 oz cream cheese
1/2 c sugar
1/2 t vanilla
2 eggs
6 oz pecans, toasted and chopped
7 oz caramel candies (half a bag)
1/4 c milk
1/3 c mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven to 325*
2. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until well blended.
3. Add eggs; mix until just blended and pour into pie crust. 
4. Bake 30-45 minutes or until center is set.
5. While your cheesecake is cooling, microwave caramels and milk on high until melted. Pour caramel over cooled cheesecake. Tilt the pan until there is an even layer of caramel.
6. Sprinkle chocolate chips and pecans on cheesecake.
7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
