      I made this awesome cheesecake for my daughters 27th birthday. It was wonderful. Made milk chocolate ganache for the top and did not use any chocolate in the cheesecake batter. Yum-she loved it!! will make again!!

      My husband loves this cheesecake - he likes the surprise layer of caramel right before the crust. I made the cheesecake for a pie auction last year, and it was one of the highest selling pies. The most difficult part of making this cheesecake is unwrapping all the caramels. If you are looking for a cheesecake to dazzle your guests, this one is a winner!
