Caramel Fudge Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 35 min. + chilling
This recipe is admittedly rich but the slight bitterness of the chocolate cream cheese layer off-sets the sweet of the chocolate crust and caramel layers and we find ourselves wanting more! We omit the pecan layer in our family.
Made this for Hubby! It gets better every day. Don't change a thing.
I've been making this cheesecake for about 17 years, at least once a year for my husband's birthday. I often send one to work with him, too. Someone else has said it already, but the recipe that came in my magazine did call for two ounces of melted semi-sweet chocolate, in addition to the unsweetened chocolate. For anyone having problems with raw brownie, make sure you are using enough for ONLY an 8" pan. Most mixes provide enough batter for a 9?13 pan. If you still have trouble, try baking without a baking sheet underneath. I have never used one, it always comes out delicious! I also like to fill a Ziploc with the filling, pipe it around the edges, pour in the caramel, then pipe the remaining filling over. This helps keep the pan cleaner and prevents caramel from dripping out so much.
I made this last night and it also came out with the brownie being raw. Your cooking time can not be correct. Could someone advise on how long the brownie should be cooked? Really wanted to make this for daughter's team dinner.
This is the worst recipe you have ever put out. 20 minutes is NOT ENOUGH TIME TO BAKE THE BROWNIE. Either a misprint or not tested thoroughly. The ingredients for this are expensive and to have to throw this runny , sloppy mess in the trash after all that work is really upsetting.
Absolutley delicious! I made this for Easter (and actually made it gluten free) and had people request the recipe so they could make it the next day for a get-together!
This was absolutely delicious...my family raved over it...and even though my brownie was not completely done...that was the best part because of the fudginess! I will definitely be making this again!
I was very disappointed. This was made for a Christmas party and when I pre-cut the cheesecake before the party, I found the brownie crust was still raw! I am not an inexperienced baker so I'm not sure why everyone else raved about this recipe. Fortunately I had some cookies on hand to take to the party.
I made a big mistake to cheat. I tried to substitute caramel for caramel ice cream syrup. BAD move! This was very good. Took it to work for a birthday. Everyone of course loved it. Can't go wrong with chocolate.
Very good ! Next time I will cook the brownie just a little longer and maybe not use quite as much caramel. It was a hit at the birthday today
