The most beautiful, delicious layered cake! Salted Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Cake! This is exactly what you were looking for, right?

I’m a bit addicted to salted caramel right now. Remember these Salted Caramel Truffles from last week? Yeah, they pretty much started this whole thing.

Not that I’m complaining, because it could be a worse addiction.

Last year I enjoyed making several cheesecake cake recipes. Remember the eggnog version? I die.

Ingredients:

2 pkg (8oz each) cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup granulated sugar

pinch of salt

2 large eggs

1/3 cup sour cream

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla

FOR THE CAKE:

1 recipe chocolate layer cake (9inch layers)- homemade or cake mix is fine

FOR THE FROSTING:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup caramel sauce (homemade caramel sauce or jarred is fine)

4 cup powdered sugar

2 Tbsp milk

1/2 tsp kosher salt

FOR THE GANACHE:

4 oz dark chocolate

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 Tbsp caramel sauce

pinch of kosher salt

Directions :

FOR THE CHEESECAKE:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Using a large roasting pan on the lower 2/3 of the oven, preheat the pan too!

Prepare a springform pan by wrapping the bottom of the pan (outside) with a double layer of foil.

Spray pan with nonstick baking spray and line bottom (inside) with a circle of parchment paper. Meanwhile, boil a kettle of water to use later.

Beat cream cheese with granulated sugar for 2-3 minutes until creamy. Add in salt and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Beat in sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla. Pour into prepared 9inch springform pan. Place pan in the center of the preheated roasting pan in the oven. Pour boiling water slowly into the roasting pan, until there is about an inch of water coming up the sides of the springform pan.

Bake cheesecake for 45 minutes. Turn oven off and let cheesecake sit in the oven for an additional 30 minutes. Remove and cool completely on counter.

When cooled, transfer the entire springform pan into the freezer for several hours or overnight.

I put it in the freezer for about 2 hours. **If using within 24 hours, feel free to just refrigerate cheesecake!
