Hereâ€™s an easy caramel recipe you can prepare anytime. It is also something you can bring for parties. You can also become creative about the crust by using wafers or chocolate biscuits.
500g cream cheese, at room temperature
300ml thickened/whipping cream
3 tsp gelatine, dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water
250g soft caramels
1/4 cup milk
250g sweet biscuits
80g butter, melted
To prepare the crust, crush the biscuits or process it in a food processor. If you can find readymade crushed biscuits, it is fine as well. Combine it with butter and mix well until the biscuit crumbs become moist. Transfer it to a springform cheesecake pan. Press the biscuit mixture onto the base and refrigerate it.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, pour in milk and melt the caramel. Stir occasionally for 5-8 minutes or until it melts. Set it aside and let it cool for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, whipped cream and gelatine. Use an electric mixer to mix these ingredients until it becomes smooth. Next, fold in 3/4 of the melted caramel.
Get your prepared pie crust and pour in the cheesecake filling. Smoothen it with a spatula. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until it becomes firm.
Decorate the cheesecake with the remaining caramel before serving. Serve chilled.
