Okay so Chels wants the recipe for the cheesecake and I hope someone else makes it as well. It is very easy!
Turtle Cheescake
1 1/2 oreo cookie crumbs
1/4 melted butter

Mix together and press into a 9" spring form pan and put into freezer.

24 oz. softened cream cheese
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs
1/4 cup crushed pineapple. Drain then squeeze out remaining juice.

Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until smooth, add eggs one at a time, mixing in each one before adding the next. Beat at medium speed for 5 min then add pineapple and mix well.

Pour into the crust and sprinkle top with semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans, about 2/3 cups of each. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate for several hours. Leave it in the pan until ready to serve. Makes about 12 moderate sized servings.
