“I took the basic cheesecake recipe & added some yummy extras. I love turtles and cheesecake so I decided to try to make a turtle cheesecake. It is awesome!! The recipe calls for a bag of caramels melted with milk but some of the time I just use a bottle of caramel ice cream topping and use it. You can also make your own caramel & use it! :)”
