  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt

  • 1 bag chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

For crust

  1. Heat oven to 325 Degrees F
  2. In a food processor crush graham crackers to crumbs. With a spoon, add in brown sugar and melted butter.
  3. Add foil to cover a 9x13 cake pan.
  4. Press crumb mixture onto bottom of pan evenly with the bottom of a spoon.
  5. Bake crust for 10 mins. Remove and let cool.

For cheesecake filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium until well blended.
  2. One at a time, add eggs, and beat on a low setting until blended (don't overdo the blending here).
  3. Pour over crust.
  4. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins or until center is almost set (should have a slightly jiggle).
  5. Turn off oven and allow cheesecake to remain inside oven for 30-45 mins.
  6. Let cool to touch and then refrigerate overnight or freeze at least 2 hours.

For caramel

  1. In a small pot over medium heat, add brown sugar, heavy cream, butter, and vanilla.
  2. Let cook, stirring frequently for 10-15 minutes until thickened.
  3. Let cool for 30 minutes.
  4. Pour mixture over cheesecake and put into freezer for an hour or until solid.
