Let that sink in for a moment.
Chocolate. Salted caramel. Cheesecake.
In cute, bite-sized bars.
I may never be the same again.
I got an idea for this at approximately 10:30 PM. I was finishing up some homework, all showered, tired, and ready to sleep. I was thinking about cheesecake, since I’d been craving some for a while. Then one thing led to another and before I knew it, I was in the kitchen, setting out the cream cheese and crushing graham crackers. I know, I’m insane.
This was also actually my first time making caramel. It always freaked me out because I’ve read of its tendencies to burn, bubble over, turn grainy, etc. So when my first batch came out silky smooth and lusciously creamy, I was literally jumping up and down, squealing and dipping a spoon into the pot every other second. I’m guessing beginners luck, but I’m already dreaming up the countless things I can do with this.
So anyway I baked the cake at night, stuck it in the fridge, and the next morning, before school, I topped off the whole thing with chocolate glaze and the caramel.
And brought it to school to share.
There were no leftovers. (:
