For best flavor this cheesecake and any cheesecake is best prepared a day ahead, to save time chop caramels hours or days in advance and keep in a ziploc bag until ready to use :)

I cannot say enough about this cheesecake. This is soooooo good, but not something you would want to eat every day unless weight gain is your thing. I will probably make this for only the most special occasions, as the ingredients alone cost me almost $30. Well worth it though!! *Update* My husband took half of the cheesecake to work today for his co-workers, and now 17 people want the recipe! Funny how that many loved it when there were only 6 pieces:)

Excellent! I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out great. Totally decadent. Aside from the superb taste, this had the nicest texture I have ever achieved in a cheesecake (and I've made more than my share). Thanks Kittencal.

It turned out very well, but next time I will add more sugar to the cake and sour cream topping.
