Scrumptious Sunday Bonus Recipe ~ Caramel Brownie Cheesecake


Hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rules
It's pouring down rain here and I got a little bored so thought
I'd post a holiday favorite recipe as a bonus.

Start with a pan of:
CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIES
1/2 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 eggs, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour, sifted
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter and chocolate together slowly so it doesn't burn in a double boiler. COOL. Cooling this mixture will help keep brownies moist.
  • Beat together eggs and salt until light and foamy.
  • Add sugar and vanilla alternately and gradually to the egg mixture.
  • Add flour until uniform in texture and color.
  • Quickly and with as few a strokes as possible, MANUALLY beat in the cooled chocolate mixture to the egg mixture.
  • Baked in a greased 9x13 pan for about 25 minutes
  • Cool
  • If making just the brownies either sprinkle them with powdered sugar when they first come out of the oven or frost as soon as they cool.
CARAMEL & CHEESECAKE layers
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoon cold water
1-14 ounce bag caramels
1-5 ounce can evaporated milk
2-8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Melt caramels with milk in saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until well blended.
  • Pour 2/3 over cooled brownie crust. The remainder will be used as topping.
  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Add eggs, one at a time and blending well between each addition.
  • Pour over caramel layer and spread smooth without pressing into the caramel layer.
  • Bake 40 minutes.
  • Run a knife around the outer edge.
  • Chill.
  • Heat reserved caramel mixture until warm.
  • Drizzle over cheesecake before serving.
