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.

I made this recipe over the weekend and it turned out great! Everyone from family members to co-workers (I had to bring some into work to share) loved these bars and commented on how good they tasted, They are also very easy to make. To make mine a little more diet friendly, I used fat-free sour cream and light cream cheese and it didn't compromise anything on the taste! I also heated the caramel dip for 30 seconds in the microwave before stirring in the pecans, which made it easier to spread on top of the cheesecake. So happy I found this recipe!

This recipe is surprisingly easy the only hard part is the 4 hour wait while it "sets" so I made mine at night before bed and it was ready the next morning to go with my husbands morning coffee he described it as "heaven" I will definitely be making this recipe for many years to come and Iv already thought of a few variations to try out such as crushing toffee on the top with the caramel instead of just the pecans.
