This Salted Caramel Cheesecake Slice is so quick and easy to prepare… AND it’s totally addictive! Best of all, it’s completely no-bake, so there’s no need to turn the oven on!
HELLOOOOO total and utter deliciousness. I know I say this a lot, but seriously…. this Salted Caramel Cheesecake Slice is freaking awesome. In fact, it’s so good, it deserves some kind of cheesecakey medal (if only there were such a thing!).
My love of anything salted caramel flavoured runs deep. And don’t even get me started on cheesecake. Geez!!! There is absolutely no way I could ever work at The Cheesecake Shop – I wouldn’t fit through the door after 2 days. Lucy + cheesecake = zero self control.
Soooo lets talk about this Salted Caramel Cheesecake Slice. Well! First of all, it’s no bake. Which is the BEST. That’s right – you just whip it up and pop it in the fridge, let it set and then devour every single mouthful like there’s no tomorrow (ok, ok – maybe leave a piece or two for your hubby and kids… maybe).
If you’re feeling super excited then totally go ahead and make your own salted caramel sauce. It’s a great thing to do (although it’s also very dangerous as you end up eating half of it as you go!). BUT do not feel bad if you use a store-bought salted caramel sauce. No guilt whatsoever!!! I used a bought version in this recipe and it tasted awesome. I’m all for making your own sauce, but with a little bubba in the house, time is of the essence here.
Most of the salted caramel sauce is used in the actual cheesecake mixture to give it that kick-ass delicious flavour. But keep a little aside to swirl through the top. There’s no real reason for doing so, except that it looks pretty (and that’s just as important a reason as any!).
This slice will take a few hours to set in the fridge… and definitely make sure you give it that time! Try and cut it into pieces too quickly and you’ll have a big mushy mess – and no-one likes a mushy mess, right!? But in all seriousness, it will only take a few hours, so sit back and have a cuppa, watch a soppy movie, do the 50 loads of washing that need to be done and then you’ll be right!
This Salted Caramel Cheesecake Slice really is the perfect thing to enjoy with your afternoon cuppa, but it also makes for one super awesome late night treat while watching Orange Is The New Black (… or is that just me!!??).
