Mini Turtle Cheesecakes

 The combination of chocolate and caramel is a favorite of mine and this little gem satisfies the sweet tooth!
 The recipe makes one dozen mini cheesecakes and would be perfect for a ladies luncheon! 
You will see how quick and easy this is when you read the following recipe.
 Turtle Cheesecakes:

12 Oreo cookies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon Madagascar vanilla
1/4 cup pecans, chopped coursely
1/4 milk chocolate chips
Hot caramel ice cream topping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Line muffin tin with foil liners
Place one Oreo in the bottom of each liner
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
Spoon batter evenly over the Oreo cookies and then top each with the chocolate chips and pecans.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until set.
Cool and then place in fridge 
When ready to serve, remove the foil liners and drizzle with hot caramel topping and garnish with freshly whipped cream, a sprig of fresh mint, and a maraschino cherry!
