This recipe was super easy to achieve and I've never made cheesecake before. It is a hit at every party. I get people begging me to make it for them. Definitely one for the books!👍

I made this recipe today and we loved it. Making it is very easy, but heating the caramel would be so much easier to spread and I will certainly try that the next time I make the bars.
