  1. 4 oz (2/3 cup | 116g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  2. 6 tbsp (90ml) heavy whipping cream
  3. 24 oz (678g) Challenge cream cheese, room temperature
  4. 1 cup (144g) light brown sugar
  5. 3 tbsp (24g) all-purpose flour
  6. 1 cup (230g) sour cream
  7. 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extrac

  • To make the caramel sauce, pour the sugar into an even layer in a large saucepan.
  • Heat on medium-high heat, whisking the sugar until melted. The sugar will clump up first, but will eventually completely melt. This should take about 10 minutes.
  • Once the sugar has melted, stop whisking and allow to cook until the sugar has turned to a little darker amber color. You may notice a nutty aroma. The change in color will happen quickly, so don’t let it go too long or get too dark or it’ll burn. Remove the caramel from the heat.
  • Add the butter and whisk until combined. The mixture will bubble up quite a bit, but keep whisking until all the butter has melted and combined.
  • Slowly pour the heavy cream into the caramel and whisk until incorporated. I find it can help to add just a bit at a time until the caramel starts to thin out, then you can add the rest. Whisk until well incorporated and smooth.
  • Set about 1 cup of caramel sauce aside for topping. Add the flour and pecan chips to the remaining caramel and set that aside.
  • To make the cheesecake crust, preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
  • Combine the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan.
