  • 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (14-ounce) package of individually wrapped caramels
  • 1 (5-ounce) can of evaporated milk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt the caramels with the evaporated milk. Heat and stir frequently until smooth. Pour the caramel sauce into the crust and top with pecans.

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and beat well until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Melt the chocolate and blend into the cream cheese mixture. Pour the chocolate batter over the pecans.

Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the filling is set. Loosen the cake from the edges of the pan, but do not remove the rim until completely cooled.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.

Some Important Tips:

1) all your ingredients should be at room temperature!
2) combine everything on low or medium speed (do not over mix)!
3) running the tip of a sharp knife around the top edge right after baking, plus cooling to room temperature before refrigerating will keep the cake from cracking.
4) If you follow these tips I guarantee that they'll work!
