This Salted Caramel Cheesecake with chocolate cream topping is delectable and yummy with the combination of caramelized sweetness and a hint of saltiness in the smooth cheesecake. There is a creamy layer of caramel appearing just above the crusty biscuit base after baking. I was inspired by Donna Hay to bake this cheesecake and I’ve tried her recipe some weeks ago. Unfortunately I found that the base of the cheesecake wasn’t as crusty as I expected. So I stick to my recipe but with a little tweak. So happy that this salted caramel cheesecake turned out perfect to serve as a light dessert.
