"I had some carmel and pecans here so I split them and made half turtle and the other half cherry. For gluten free people you can leave the cookies out and be able to still enjoy these."

"This was easy to make and delicious. It's a light tasting chocolate cheesecake and it actually made 28 so I had plenty to share with friends and keep some for myself."
