Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine wafer crumbs with the melted margarine. Mix well. Press onto the bottom and half-way up the side of 9 inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow to cool.
  2. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a saucepan over low heat, melt the caramels together with the chocolate chips and evaporated milk stir until smooth and pour into crust. Break candy bars into small pieces. Sprinkle over the caramel layer.
  3. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and flour; beat until smooth. Add eggs, then yolks, one at a time. Blend in heavy cream and vanilla. Pour over caramel and toffee layers. Wrap outside of pan with foil.
  4. Set in a large pan that has been filled with 1 inch of hot water. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 15 minutes; reduce oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) and bake 1 hour. Remove from water. Cool to room temperature, then chill overnight in the refrigerator. Top with 3 more Heath Bar candy bars that have been chopped.

If you cook the cheesecake only an hour - it will NOT work and will run all over. We did this without looking at the other reviews! We had to throw most of it out as it did not set. Also, you NEED to let this COOL at least 24 hours (found this out the hard way too). What I did when I cooked it the second time - I used a 10 inch springform, I cooked it at the 400 for 20 minutes and then I cooked it at 235 degrees for an 1 hour and 35 minutes and it came out perfect. I took everyone's suggestions - I put some toffee in the cheesecake, and saved some chocolate for on TOP of the cheesecake. I had one SMALL crack, and the chocolate hid it, and then I topped with toffee bar bits. I made this for someone's birthday at work. Everyone said it was the best cheesecake they have ever had and they all told me their birthday's and begged me to make it for theirs. I work with one lady who bakes all the time, and she said she was throwing out her cheesecake recipe and wanted this one. It's sure to please if cooked all the way!!

Second time I've made this & won Grand Prize at Local contest. Found that these modifications make it a winner. First layer is too mcuh so use just half the amount of caramel & choc mixture then fold chopped toffee bits into cheesecake mxtr b4 pouring into crust (that way it actually has toffee chunks!). Bake at 425 for 20 mins then 250 for 1 hr+ (total for me was 1hr 10 mins). Use water bath and check center w/inst read therm for 160-165 degrees and will be perfect!!!

Rich and delicious! I posted a photo at the end of the recipe. This cheesecake is a beauty! I used chocolate wafers for the crust and drizzeled 1/3 of the caramel mixture on top prior to topping with toffee bars. I used 3 Skor bars over bottom caramel mixture, 3 bars folded into cream cheese and 3 bars on top. Baked for time allotted in recipe then turned oven off and let cake remain in oven for an additional hour. It came out PERFECT! * Tips at end of recipe were very helpful.
