    List of Ingredients

    Praline Chocolate Dessert

    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 mixing bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over praline layer. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set.

    For ganache, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips with cream; stir until smooth. Cool slightly; 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.
