      Made this for a family birthday and had great compliments! One change I would make - add a little more butter to the crust. Mine turned out kinda dry & crumbly...but it still tasted great ;)

      I love this cheesecake and was actually going to post it myself! It has wonderful flavor and presentation. The crust is my favorite part and it goes together like a dream. I made this for my Dad's birthday and it looked very professional. Thanks for posting!

      I don't like an Oreo crust so I use chocolate graham crackers and crush them finely. I use the same amount of butter and the same amount of cracker crumbs as Oreos . You will be amazed it's like eating a chocolate candy bar with Carmel crust.I have made this recipe many times. I get rave reviews every time !
