Ingredients

How to make it

  • To prepare the crust, mix together all ingredients until moistened; press mixture into bottom and about 1 and 1/2 inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  • To prepare the filling, blend together cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla in a large bowl. Add eggs and mix well. Gently stir in the toffee pieces. Pour filling over graham cracker crust.
  • For topping, combine cake mix and butter until crumbly. Measure out 1 cup of the crumb mixture; freeze remaining crumbs for future use (I get enough crumb mixture to use on 3 of these cheesecakes - the crumbs freeze well for several months). To the 1 cup of crumbs, add brown sugar and pecans; mix together well. Sprinkle this crumb mixture over the filling.
  • Bake cheesecake at 325 degrees for 70 minutes, or until center is set and topping is golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • Place caramel ice cream topping in a glass measuring cup and microwave just enough to warm caramel and make it easier to pour it out of the measuring cup. Drizzle warmed caramel topping over the top of the cheesecake. Return pan to oven and bake an additional 7 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool on wire rack for 30 minutes. Run a knife around the sides of the pan to loosen the cheesecake. Cool cheesecake completely, then remove sides from springform pan. Cover cheesecake well, and allow it to chill in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours before cutting. Use a sharp knife that will slice through the crunchy topping easier.

    Oh yeah! This looks oh so yummy! Hope you are feeling better. My hubby had some bug and did what his grandma used to do.... took some castor oil. Whoa! Nothing like a good Spring cleaning. Oops! It's not quite Spring yet....hehe
