Smooth and decadent cheesecake is topped with buttery caramel sauce and toasty pecans. The result is a dessert that will win everyone over-Caramel Pecan Cheesecake!
Just look at that mouthwatering goodness. I mean, really, how could you say no to that?
I was honored with the privilege of guest posting this amazing cheesecake on Marsha’s Baking Addiction last week. I was thrilled to be able to post it on her site and share with her how amazing this recipe is! Check out her site to see the post (and the recipe!) plus other decadent treats!
But, to be honest, I can’t even take full credit for the idea because it truly came from my boyfriend. One night as my Matt and I were eating dinner, he turned to me and asked if I could make a cheesecake for my blog. But not just any cheesecake. A caramel and pecan cheesecake, he said.
Never one to turn down a challenge, or a cheesecake for that matter, I immediately started brainstorming how I wanted this masterpiece to go.
The result? Delicious.
Now I will say it does take a little while to put together, but it is totally worth it. The cheesecake is super moist, rich and amazingly decadent. With the tang of the Greek yogurt, it pairs perfectly with the deep and rich caramel sauce. Finally, toasted pecans add a nice crunch and toastiness to this perfect cake.
As soon as Matt got home from work he scoured the fridge looking for the cheesecake, only for me to tell him he had to wait until after he ate his lunch to have some. (Little does he know I snuck a sliver or two myself while photographing it…)
Once he did get some, however, he loved it! He cleared off his plate in record time! It was a big hit with Matt and I hope it is with you too!
