Ingredients

COOKIE BASE

  • 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs **
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)

CHEESECAKE FILLING

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup powdered / icing sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole / whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits
  • 1 tablespoon gelatine
  • 2 tablespoons milk

TOPPING

  • caramel sauce (as much as desired)
  • 1 cup broken chocolate caramel bars

** I like to use digestive cookies, although I found savoiardi (lady fingers) a really good alternative and graham cracker crumbs work also.

    Instructions

    • Mix cookie crumbs and melted butter, press down on the bottom of a 7 - 8 inch (17 - 20 cm) springform cake pan (or line a regular cake pan with parchment paper). Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 - 30 minutes.
    • In a medium bowl beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until creamy, set aside.
    • Beat cold cream until stiff peaks appear, set aside.
    • In a small pot add the 2 tablespoons of milk and sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of gelatine on top, let stand one minute, then place the pot on low heat and heat just until the gelatine has dissolved whisk until smooth, do not boil, then immediately remove from heat.
    • Immediately add a couple of tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture to the gelatine mixture and stir gently to combine, then fold the gelatine mixture into the bowl of the remaining cream cheese mixture.
    •  Remove the cookie base from the fridge, add the cheesecake filling on top, smoothing the top with a knife or spatula, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4-5 hours or better over night.
    • Before serving drizzle with caramel sauce and top with broken skor bars, serve.  Enjoy!

    Notes

    If you want you can leave out the gelatine. The cheesecake won't be as firm, you may want to place it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before serving. Follow the instructions as below.
