I love this recipe! I have made it at least 3 times. This was the first ever cheesecake recipe I attempted because the boyfriend wanted a cheesecake for his birthday. It was perfect! I use some of the chocolate in the middle with the carmel (I like chocolate alot). I would also suggest putting some foil under the pan sometimes the caramel leaks out of the springform.
This was absolutely amazing!!! The only tweak I made was to use a full brownie box (about double the recommended) and just followed the directions on the box, and went from there. We have made it twice in the past two weeks for birthdays, and it will definitely be a tradition! Thanks so much!
This was great! BF said he could eat himself sick on it. I agree, it's so rich but very addictive!
Made this again but decided to make as individual cheesecakes using the individual cheesecake idea that RecipeNut submitted. I also did not have the patience for the caramel and used Nestle Dulce de Leche instead. I also used the Kahlua Brownie recipe for the bottom. People at work were literally fighting over whether people took more than one and if they should have to give them to someone that hadn't had one!
