Ingredients:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 24 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips, melted
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream, for garnish
  • Butterscotch chips, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C) and wrap the outside of a 9-inch springform pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Prepare Crust: In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Prepare Cheesecake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth and creamy. Stir in the melted butterscotch chips until fully incorporated.
  4. Layer and Swirl: Pour the cheesecake batter over the prepared crust in the springform pan. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top of the cheesecake batter and use a knife to swirl it into the batter.
  5. Bake in Water Bath: Place the springform pan inside a large roasting pan and fill the roasting pan with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  6. Bake: Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the edges are set but the center still jiggles slightly.
  7. Cool: Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside with the door closed for 1 hour. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and run a knife around the edges to loosen it from the pan. Allow it to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  8. Garnish and Serve: Once chilled, garnish with whipped cream and butterscotch chips before serving, adding an extra layer of indulgence to this decadent treat.
