Turtle Brownie Cheesecake

This Turtle Brownie Cheesecake is a delightful dessert that is super impressive, yet quite easy to make. 

You start with a chocolate almond flour crust.

It creates a nice sturdy base for this cheesecake.

It’s also fun to press it into the pan.

Crust of Turtle Brownie Cheesecake

On top of the crust layer, goes the layer featuring dark chocolate chips. (Both Hershey’s and Lilly’s have good options.) Next, you add chopped pecans and sugar-free caramel. An ice cream topping, such as Smucker’s, works great for this layer. The fourth layer is the cheesecake layer. Then you bake it. It takes just over an hour. An internal 150 degree temperature is perfect for knowing it’s done.

Do not be alarmed when it comes out darkened. It will resemble a Basque-type cheesecake that looks burnt. It’s not.

You top Turtle Brownie Cheesecake with more pecans and caramel drizzle. The pecan halves are so visual. So is the caramel drizzle. As a result, you’ll have a mouth-watering look to this dessert. Finish it with a sprinkling of sea salt or flaked salt and the flavor will really pop.
This is an example of a chocolate dessert you could compete with in the Splenda Magic Baker “Low-To-No-Sugar Showdown at the 2023 Minnesota State Fair. Learn more about the 2023 special contests here.
