This cheesecake recipe is wonderful! The texture is perfect and the crust was delicious! One thing I would for sure change is the caramel topping. It was tasty, but the caramel hardned once I placed it in the fridge and when I tried to cut it, the topping messed up. I suggest a LIQUID CARAMEL TOPPING that is normally for ice cream. That way it is soft. But keep the caramel candy in the cheesecake part, it was delicious.

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful cheesecake! The texture is so creamy and the crust, mmm. The pecans just add a special touch to it. I made this recipe almost as exactly stated. The only change I made was the caramel I used. I did not use Kraft caramels, I used Praline Sundae Topping (with the nuts omitted - recipe from this site) for the entire recipe. The amount to be used in the batter (36 melted caramels) would be 1¼ cups. (special thanks to redneck gramma for calling Kraft to find out!) This cheesecake baked up perfectly and I did not top it with the nuts and caramel right away because sometimes I like plain cheesecake. When enjoyed plain, you can tell that it is a caramel cheesecake. The flavour is subtle yet noticeable and perfect on it's own. I added caramel and pecans to individual servings and wow, just looking at it was like eye candy - digging into it was heavenly! Thanks for the recipe. Delightful!


This is scrummy, the only change I made was to use liquid caramel topping, it stayed soft and creamy.
