Caramel Cheesecake

I write now in my new year diet phase, one which I undoubtedly assume is shared by many right now given the general tendency for everyone to overindulge over the Christmas and New Year period.  Yet, I am blogging about something which was made prior to those celebratory chimes.  

I made a rather un-festive caramel cheesecake, this was from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook and the recipe can be found at luellas Bakery blog. 

This recipe was absolutely fabulous and the only comment I would have is that be prepared to use cream cheese which has a high fat content as the basic toffee part of the cheesecake for me was so runny it had to be cooked first for a little while and then I put the much thicker chocolate mix on top.  I think this, as I desperately backtracked through my baking, was due to me purchasing some own brand stuff which just wasn't thick enough.  

So sadly I cannot consume anything of this sort at the moment, well until my diet breaks but this will definitely feature somewhere along the line, perhaps if I reach goal weight I'll need a treat?
