I come from a long line of women who show love with food. I was raised by a mom who believed with all of her heart that a good bowl of made from scratch bread pudding could cure even the worse day.
We celebrated milestones with delicious homemade treats and we drowned our sorrows in decadent concoctions. Now that I’m grown with a family of my own I find myself following in the traditions of my childhood.
We celebrate milestones and accomplishments with delicious treats. Everyone has their own favorite treats in our family. Ty likes anything with pound cake.
Maia craves chocolate. Mase loves ice cream treats. Zoey wants fruit based desserts. And Matt, well Matt is my classic cheesecake lover.
For Matt’s birthday this year he said he didn’t really want to do anything in celebration. I guess he doesn’t want to celebrate getting one year closer to 40. But I can’t let the big 3-9 go past without doing something, right? What better way to celebrate than with a delicious Sara Lee Classic Cheesecake? I knew immediately what I wanted to make to help Matt celebrate getting another year older- a delicious Turtle Cheesecake. I hit the Food Lion right by my house one morning after dropping the kids off at school to grab all the ingredients I needed to prepare this special surprise.
I loved the ease of just being able to thaw the Sara Lee Classic Cheesecake and add the toppings to turn the original cheesecake into a Deluxe Turtle Cheesecake perfect for a birthday celebration.
It was a truly delicious, rich and creamy dessert with toppings that just added an amazing pop of flavor with every single bite.
1 Sara Lee Classic Cheesecake
4 Tbsp chocolate sauce
4 Tbsp caramel sauce
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1- Thaw cheesecake according to directions on package.
2- Top with chocolate sauce.
3- Add chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
4- Drizzle caramel sauce over top.
5- Serve with a smile.
You can adjust the amount of chocolate and caramel sauces to fit your own tastes. For us, I know Matt loves the cheesecake itself the most and the toppings give just a hint of flavor for him.
Now if it were a Turtle Cheesecake that I was making for myself I would have that sweet treat smothered in all the caramel sauce.
