Ultimate Turtle Cheesecake

Hi Ya'll! As you know yesterday was my birthday and my hubs gave me an awesome round cake pan with a removable bottom. So I had go find the perfect cheesecake recipe to make for my birthday!
The hubs made me biscuits and gravy for breakfast. We spent most of the day watching old episodes of Saturday Night Live. Overall it was a pretty great birthday!!

Ultimate Turtle Cheesecake:

24 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 2 cups)
6 Tbsp.  butter or margarine, melted
1 pkg. (14 oz.) Caramels
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped pecans
3 pkg.  (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 eggs
2 squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Heat oven to 325°F.
Mix crumbs and butter; press onto bottom and 2 inches up side of 9-inch springform pan. Microwave caramels and milk in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 3 min. or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after each minute. Stir in nuts; pour half into crust. Refrigerate 10 min. Refrigerate remaining caramel mixture for later use.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over caramel layer in crust.

Bake 1 hour 5 min. to 1 hour 10 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours.
