Caramel Toffee Cheesecake

Yet another part of the 30th Birthday Dinner. I was cooking ALL day. This cheesecake is really quick and easy. It is good but not like a NY cheesecake. It is much moister. But still very tasty especially when topped with copious amounts of homemade caramel sauce and crushed Skor bars.

Caramel Sauce

Adapted from Simply Recipes

1 cup of sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup cream

Heat sugar on medium high heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. As the sugar begins to melt, stir vigorously. Stop stirring as soon as the sugar comes to a boil.

Add butter and stir until melted.

Take the pan off of the heat and add the cream. Whisk until smooth.

Let sauce cool in the pan. Serve warm.

(Keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks).
