This cheesecake is one of the easiest and tastiest I have every tried! I also added a chopped Heath bar to the topping. Thank you for sharing!

Shake things up a bit with the crust and used crushed biscotti (chocolate, macaroon, or almond)! Also, I double the recipe to achieve a taller cake

Very easy to make and tastes excellent! We made this cheesecake for the first time last night and won a cheesecake contest with it today!

MY REVIEW

Yummy! This cheesecake is really good. I love every aspect of it - the crust, the cheesecake filling, and the caramel topping. I often use pecans instead of walnuts because I more typically have those on hand. I have sometimes also drizzled some chocolate syrup or hot fudge sauce over the top of each slice as well, in create a turtle cheesecake-type flavor.
