Paleo Turtle Cheese Cake 80%

Paleo Turtle Cheese Cake 80%

Okay, full disclosure for the purists; I did use cream cheese in this recipe. That being said the rest is Paleo, Raw, Vegan, and Gluten free!

Ingredients Candy Topping:
Coconut Oil 1/2 cup melted
Pecans 1/2 cup
Cocoa Powder 1/4 cup
Agave/Honey 2 tablespoons
Coconut 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened
Vanilla 1 teaspoon

Melt Coconut Oil for 30 seconds in microwave. Stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Then pour candy in foil lined pan about 5x5 and place in refrigerator while you move to next step.

Ingredients Crust:
Almonds 2 cups
Dates 1 cup
Cocoa Powder 1/2 cup
Coconut Oil 1/2 cup
Raisins 1/4 cup
Vanilla 1 tablespoon
Sea Salt 1 tablespoon

Grind all crust ingredients in food processor until forms a ball of semi sticky dough. Press on bottom and up sides of 9 or 10 inch cheese cake pan that has been lined with plastic wrap. Then place crust lined pan in freezer while you move to next step.

Ingredients Cream Cheese Filling:
Cream Cheese 40 oz (5 packages)
Stevia in Raw 1/2 cup
Coconut Milk Organic 1/2 cup
Lemon juice 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed
Vanilla 1 tablespoon
Arrow Root Powder 1 tablespoon

In standing mixer or with hand held mixer blend all filling ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Pour over chilled crust and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Once filling has chilled and is set em ice candy bar from refrigerator and chop. Cover top of cheese cake with chopped candy; press in gently. Drizzle with caramel before serving.
