White Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake

White Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake

Biscuit Base:

  • 2 cups malt or plain biscuit crumbs
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon melted butter


  • 2 + 3/4 cups cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup caramelised white chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons custard powder
  • 2 tablespoons Heilala Butterscotch Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1 cup Dulce de Leche (homemade using the recipe below or store-bought)

Dulce de Leche:

  • 2 x 14oz tins condensed milk
Preheat the oven to 356°F fan bake. Empty the condensed milk from the tins into a 9 inch wide ceramic dish and cover tightly with tin foil. Place the dish in a roasting dish and add enough water to reach halfway up the side of the baking dish. Bake for 2 hours, adding extra water if needed to maintain the same level. Remove from the oven, uncover, and set aside to cool.


  1. Preheat the oven to 320°F fan bake.
  2. Line the base and sides of a 9 inch round spring-form tin with parchment paper.
  3. In a food processor, combine the biscuits and melted butter until the mixture is damp and coarse. Pour the crumb into the prepared tin and press firmly halfway up the sides and evenly into the base. Place in the refrigerator to set.
  4. In a stand mixer bowl with the whisk attachment, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, caster sugar, and eggs. Whisk until smooth.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the custard powder, vanilla extract, and water into a smooth paste. Add to the cream cheese mixture with the motor running, whisking to combine.
  6. Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water and melt, stirring until smooth. Slowly add the melted chocolate into the cream cheese mixture with the motor running, whisking until well combined.
  7. Pour the filling over the chilled biscuit base.
  8. Spoon dollops of the cooled Dulce de Leche over the top of the mixture and swirl with a fork.
  9. Bake for 60 minutes, reducing the temperature to 302°F for the last 5 minutes. The sides will be set with a slight wobble in the middle.
  10. Turn the oven off and leave the door slightly ajar to allow the cheesecake to cool.
