Decoration

  • caramel shards
  • twix bars
  • crushed biscuits

Instructions
 

First prepare the salted caramel sauce.

  • Place the sugar and water in a medium heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook without stirring until sugar dissolves and gets a caramel color.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the cream. It will bubble a little bit.
  • Cook for about 1 minute stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth.
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla extract, butter and salt. Stir well until smooth. Transfer into a bowl and set aside to cool.

Prepare the crust.

  • Line with parchment paper a 8 inch (20cm) springform pan (with a removable base).  Place the crackers or digestive biscuits into the bowl of a food processor and crush until crumbs form. Add melted butter and mix until evenly moistened.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom of the pan using the back of a spoon. Refrigerate until you prepare the filling. If desired, line the pan with an acetate sheet for easier removal.

Prepare the cream cheese filling.

  • Cut the twix bars in smaller pieces and set aside. In a large bowl mix cream cheese with vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Add ½ cup (120g) salted caramel sauce and mix to combine. In another bowl mix cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Incorporate the twix bar pieces into the cream cheese mixture. Pour the mixture over the crust. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight to set.
  • Spread ½ cup (120g) salted caramel sauce over the cream cheese filling leaving a ½ inch (1cm) border. Refrigerate until you prepare the chocolate ganache.

Prepare chocolate ganache.

  • Place chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl and place over a pan with simmering water. Melt over low heat.
  • Spread it evenly over the caramel.
  • Refrigerate for another 30 minutes before serving.
  • Decorate with twix bars, caramel shards and crushed biscuits. Serve with remaining caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this cheesecake today!!
    I usually find it very hard to make caramel and it always ends up crystallized.
    But with your recipe and techniques, I nailed it for the very first time.
    The cheesecake was delicious 🙂
    Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  2. Vasilis Author says:

    I tried making this and it was great! I have a question though, while I was waiting for the crust+cream filling in the refrigerator, the cream sauce started crystallising. Is there a proper way to store the caramel sauce, while waiting for the rest of the cake, to avoid that?
