Dulce de Leche Cheesecake . . . sweet and creamy, this decadent cheesecake is perfect for caramel lovers!
Have you ever tried dulce de leche? It’s basically caramel, so I use the terms interchangeably for this recipe. I made this dulce de leche cheesecake for Christmas Eve, and it was a hit. Every bite is sweet, rich, creamy, and absolutely mouthwatering.
The cinnamon in the crust is a perfect compliment to the caramel flavor, so don’t leave it out. It’s a perfect crunchy and buttery base to hold the sweet creamy filling.
I usually make my own dulce de leche by cooking a can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium low heat till it caramelizes and turns light brown. But this time around I used a can of premade dulce de leche. The can is a real time saver, but truth be told, I like the homemade version better.
If you are a caramel lover, this cheesecake is perfect for you. Not only does it have layers of caramel in the filling, you garnish it with more dulce de leche when you serve it. So yummy!
This is a perfect dessert to “wow” your dinner guests, it makes a beautiful presentation with the caramel drizzled over the top. And of course it is sinfully delicious!
From the buttery crust to dulce de leche drizzle, every bite of this cheesecake is scrumptious. Enjoy!
