Description

Salted Caramel Cheesecake is baked on a delicious Oreo crust then topped with more homemade salted caramel, these Caramel Cheesecake Bars are my all time favorite cheesecake bar


Ingredients

Scale

Crust

  • 21 Oreos
  • 2oz (4 Tablespoons) Butter, melted

Cheesecake

  • 16oz Cream Cheese, at room temp
  • 150 Grams (3/4 cup) Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs, at room temp.
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 6oz (3/4 cupsalted caramel homemade or store-bought

Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 325F/163C and line a 9-inch square pan with foil and grease it heavily, including up the sides.
  2. In a food processor crush the Oreo cookies into fine crumbs. In a small bowl combine the crushed Oreos and melted butter. Once combined press into prepared pan. Place pan in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

Cheesecake

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the cream cheese for two minutes. Add the granulated sugar and mix for another 2 minutes, make sure to scrape sides of the bowl so all is incorporated evenly. Add in eggs, one at a time and then vanilla.
  2. Pour on top of prepared crust. Spoon 8 tbsp sizes dollops of salted caramel and use a knife to swirl into bars. Bake for 38-42 minutes or until center stops giggling. Set on wire rack and let cool for 30 minutes, then place in the fridge to chill for 2 hours or do 40 minutes in fridge and 30 in the freezer.
  3. Drizzle more salted caramel on top, if desired. Store in the fridge.
