I made this cheesecake quite a while ago things seemed to get crazy here around Christmas time :O This is a great recipe on its own buuuuut :) if I had to make some changes.....I would add some salt in both the crust and maybe a light sprinkle on top of the caramel. I find that turtles have a hint of salt and it brings out all the other flavors. This recipe calls for chocolate to be stirred into the cheesecake batter and I had a hard time committing, as you can see, I ended up somewhat marbling it. I would leave chocolate out next time and do a proper ganache on top true to turtles form.
Next time I will sprinkle pink salt on top of ganache; which would be amazing! Anyone tried the purdy's caramels with Himalayan salt OMG? Yum! Here is the link turtle cheesecake
