How to Make Caramel Cheesecake

Crushing Oreos in a food processor

Step 1 – First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Crush the Oreo cookies in a food processor or blender. You want the cookies to be very fine.

Pressing the crushed Oreo mixture into the pan

Step 2 – Then, make the crust. Mix together the Oreos, melted butter, and a tablespoon of sugar. Once the crust is in the 9-inch springform pan, bake it for five minutes. Then set it aside while you make the filling.

Beating the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar in a bowl

Step 3 – Get out a large mixing bowl. Beat together the cream cheese, vanilla, and one cup of sugar. You can combine ingredients with a stand mixer with paddle attachment or a hand mixer on medium speed.

Adding in the eggs into the cream cheese mixture in the bowl

Step 4 – Next, add the eggs one at a time. Mix this together using a hand mixer until it is smooth.

Stirring in the toffee bits in the cream cheese mixture

Step 5 – Finally, pour your brickle chips or brickle toffee into batter and stir together.

Pouring the cheesecake batter into the pan on top of the crust

Step 6 – Now that you have the cheesecake filling, pour the batter on top of your crust.

Swirling in the caramel sauce into the cheesecake batter

Step 7 – The last step is to spoon caramel on the top of the batter. Cut through the batter mixture with a knife several times to give the marbleized effect. This is what is going to make it look so pretty.

Step 8 – Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. The center should be set and not have any liquid.

  • Step 9 – Allow the cheesecake to cool completely in a water bath if needed. Then remove from the cheesecake pan, and refrigerate for three hours. You can also place in the refrigerator overnight.

Recipe Tips

  • Combining Crust Ingredients – Combine the crust ingredients all together making sure the crumbs are all coated. However, you do not want to make a paste.
  • Adding Caramel Sauce – When swirling in the caramel sauce you do not want to completely mix into the cheesecake batter. You want it to have the swirl affect throughout the cheesecake.
  • Baking Cheesecake – Cooking time will vary, but the cheesecake will be finished cooking when the center is set.
  • Cream Cheese – For the best tasting cheesecake, make sure to use full fat cream cheese. We also recommend that the cream cheese be softened to room temperature. This helps to create a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Cool Cheesecake – Before slicing cheesecake make sure to allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.
