Praline Chocolate Dessert!! Yummy!

Celebrating is always so much fun! It is even more fun when there is good food and more importantly good dessert! This is one of Ryan's favorite desserts...not the best picture but you get the idea! AMAZING is all I have to say about the taste of this delicious treat!


  • 2 cups cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Pecan halves


  • In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with pecans.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring butter and brown sugar to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour over pecans. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set.
  • In a large bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over praline layer. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set.
  • For ganache, place chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Spread over filling. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set.
  • Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides of pan. Garnish with pecan halves. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 14-16 servings.
