*QUICK* Turtle Cheesecake

Do you ever over-commit and then find yourself it a pickle for an elegant dessert?  While I love the holiday season and seeing everyone we love, there are days it can feel a bit overwhelming!
 
Here is a quick trick from my wonderful friend, Joy!
 
*QUICK* Turtle Cheesecake
 
 
Ingredients:
 
(Of course home made equivalents can be substituted when you're not in a pinch for time!)
 
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray
Graham Cracker Crumbs
Ready Made Cheesecake Filling
Caramel Sauce
Chocolate Sauce
Pecans
Mini Chocolate Chips
 
This recipe is one of the few times I use the cups that came with my punch bowl.  They are the perfect size! 
 
Here's how you do it!
 
Spray the inside of the punch cup with butter flavor cooking spray.  Add about a teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs.  Shake gently to coat the inside of the cup.  Add a nice scoop of cheesecake filling.  Drizzle caramel and chocolate sauce.  Sprinkle pecans and chocolate chips.
 
In no time, you have a lovely little dessert for several guests!

 
Since my punch bowl cups are clear, I like to stack a clear cake plate on top of a clear platter which makes a pretty display!
 
Please tell me one of your quick tricks!

  3. What a great idea - I don't think I have seen "ready made cheesecake filling" - is it in a can? in the dairy section?

    1. Hi, Patti - In my grocery store, it is near the cream cheese. The container looks kind of like a tub of butter with a big lid, which is nice for scooping! Please let me know if you have any other questions! ;-) -Marci

  4. Hey Marci! I always love seeing you visit Thriving on Thursdays. This cheesecake is on my to do list for sure. I love how it's in individual serves. Thanks so much for linking up. I'm featuring this one at tomorrow's party.
