Notes on Ingredients

Understanding the ingredients is crucial to mastering this cheesecake. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Brownie Mix: A convenient base, forming the chewy crust.

  • Cold Water: Helps combine the brownie mix smoothly.
  • Caramels: Provide a luscious, gooey layer.
  • Evaporated Milk: Adds creaminess to the caramel mixture.

How to Make Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Step-by-step Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prep: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to prevent sticking.
  2. Brownie Base: In a small bowl, combine the brownie mix, 1 egg, and cold water. Spread this mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Caramel Layer: While the brownie base is baking, melt the caramels with evaporated milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir continuously until smooth. Reserve 1/3 cup of this caramel mixture. Pour the remaining caramel over the warm, baked brownie crust.
  4. Cheesecake Layer: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth using an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Pour this mixture over the caramel layer.
  5. Bake Cheesecake: Bake the cheesecake for 40 minutes. Once baked, chill the cheesecake thoroughly in the pan.
  6. Finishing Touches: After chilling, run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake to loosen it, then remove the pan’s rim. Heat the reserved caramel mixture and spoon it over the cheesecake. Finally, drizzle with chocolate fudge topping.

How to Serve Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Serve each slice of this decadent dessert chilled, allowing the layers to shine. Pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat. Perfect for special occasions, gatherings, or simply when you need a sweet pick-me-up.
