Salted Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake

Hello everyone!

I am so glad to be back to share this delicious recipe for Salted Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake with you!
It doesn’t take a lot of time to make…about 20 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes of baking time, and it features one of this home’s favourite ingredients…Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

Although this original recipe from Philadelphia Cream Cheese is made in a 9 inch springform pan, I had fun playing around and making single serving cheesecakes in 250 ml wide mouth mason jars. I loved how this dessert looks in the jars!

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake


•3 packages (250g each) Philadelphia brick cream cheese, softened
•1 1/4 cups OREO crumbs

•1/4 cup butter, melted

•3/4 cup sugar

•3 eggs

•4 squares Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate, melted

•3/4 cup caramel sauce

•1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

1.Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix crumbs and butter. Press firmly onto bottom of a 9-inch springform pan or 12 {250 ml size} mason jars.

2.Beat Philadelphia cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed just until blended. Stir in chocolate; pour over crust, or pour into 12 mason jars {250 ml size and fill jars 2/3 cup full as filling will puff up during baking.}

3.Bake 40 min. or until centre is almost set.{If making single servings in mason jars, place the jars on a cookie sheet to go into the oven.} Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool completely before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours. Spread caramel sauce over top just before serving and sprinkle with sea salt.

{Here’s a tip: Use the flat bottom of a glass to press the cookie crumbs in the bottom of the jars.}
I garnished the cheesecakes with whipped cream, caramel sauce, a caramel and a sprinkle of sea salt.
I love the look of desserts in mason jars…so adorable!
These are also perfect for gift giving!
