I made mine with a vanilla wafer base, by crushing 1 1/2 cups of vanilla wafers and mixing it with 1/4 cup of melted butter. I pressed that into a 9x3 springform pan. Once I poured my caramel ...

I made this at Christmas and everybody loved it. It's so rich and creamy you only need a very small slice. Definately a hit!

Amazing! Make sure you don't let the caramel go to close to the edges otherwise it will stick. But overall, so tasty and so easy to make!

The pecan and caramel crust was very good, but the chocolate cheesecake was dry and like eating chocolate paste. I will never make this again.

followed recipe exact. Caramel a little hard to cut through, next time will use a drizzle method. very rich, extended family members asked for recipe.

It was a good cheesecake overall, but the crust was so sticky and extremely hard to cut through. Will not ever use carmels again in the crust. Filling was very rich and sinful!
