Praline Cheesecake With Caramel Recipe

This gorgeous Praline Cheesecake combines the taste of pralines and cream in a cheesecake and is very easy to make.
Drizzle the caramel over the top and you have a winner for dessert!


  • 66 vanilla wafers, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter, melted
  • 3 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 25 KRAFT Caramels
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans, toasted


  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Crush 50 wafers finely; mix with 1/4 cup sugar and margarine. Press onto bottom of 9-inch spring form pan. Stand remaining wafers around edge, pressing gently into crust to secure.
  3. Beat cream cheese and remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
  4. Bake 45 to 50 min. or until center is almost set. Run small knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours.
  5. Microwave caramels and milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until caramels are completely melted, stirring every 30 sec. Cool slightly. Pour over cheesecake; top with nuts.

Prep Time: 18 minutes Serving Size: 16
