Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

Winter is all about indulging in comfort foods, prepared with heavier sauces, creams, and of course, cheese. That also includes delectable desserts such as a rich and creamy cheesecake. Add chocolate, caramel, and pecans in this divine Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cheesecake recipe, and you’re in cheesecake heaven.

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

Ingredients

1 1/2 chocolate graham crackers

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup caramel syrup or homemade caramel (see recipe below)

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

3 packages (250 g each) cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 package (225 g) semi-sweet chocolate, melted

Method

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix crumbs and butter together, and press firmly with the bottom of a flat glass onto bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then, remove from oven. Pour caramel sauce over crust, and top with pecans.

In a large bowl with an electric or stand mixer, beat cream cheese and on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing just until blended after each addition. Stir in chocolate; pour into crust.

Bake at 350°F for 50 minutes, or until centre is almost set; the centre may still appear slightly jiggly. Cool completely, then refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Garnish with additional caramel sauce and pecans.

Tip: Bake your cheesecake in a water bath to avoid cracking. How? Wrap the outside of pan in a double layer of tin foil, covering the bottom and extending up. Place the plan into a larger roasting pan, and pout hot water into the roasting pan to about halfway up the side of the cheesecake pan.
