Snacktastic Saturday: No Bake Turtle Cheesecake

This has got to be one of my favorite "snacks". Of course it can be dessert too, but with such little time to whip this baby up, I like to consider it snack-worthy.

•chocolate sandwich cookies, processed to fine crumbs
•2Tbsp. sugar, optional
•3-4Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
•8oz. cream cheese, softened
•1/4C. sugar
•1tsp. lemon juice
•8oz. (1 tub) whipped topping, thawed
•mini chocolate chips, optional
•chocolate sauce, caramel sauce & pecan pieces for garnish

- In bottom of pie plate, combine chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs, sugar (optional) & melted margarine thoroughly. Press onto bottom & slightly up sides of pie plate. 
- In a large bowl, beat softened cream cheese for 2 min. Add sugar & lemon juice, beating another 2-3 min.
- Stir in whipped topping & mini chocolate chips if you're feeling a bit dare-devilish.
- Place filling in pie plate, smoothing the top.
- Refrigerate 1-2 hrs. or until set.
- Top with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce & pecan pieces for the full turtle effect & enjoy!
