Cheesecake Factory Dulce de Leche Caramel Cheesecake
The Cheesecake Factory Dulce de Leche Caramel Cheesecake recipe seems like a complicated dessert to make, but it is actually much easier than it appears. This dessert will make any special occasion sweeter, and the version here could easily be mistaken for the one at the restaurant. This cheesecake combines the flavors of a vanilla cookie crust, caramel cream cheese filling, and caramel mousse.
The first Cheesecake Factory opened in 1972 and only served cheesecake. By 1975, there were 20 flavors to choose from. A few years later, a branch in Beverly Hills was opened by the founders' son, and offered a full menu of salads, sandwiches and, of course, plenty of sweet and creamy cheesecake.

Gourmet Dulce De Leche Cheesecake Recipe
- For some added flavor and texture, add a sprinkle of chopped nuts to the cheesecake before serving. Sliced almonds, pecan pieces or walnut pieces will all work well.
- For extra caramel punch, drizzle the chilled cheesecake with some warm caramel sauce before serving. Hot fudge sauce is also a good choice for chocolate lovers.
- If you like, you can prepare the dulce de leche sauce yourself. Simply pour 1 can of condensed milk into a pie plate and bake at 425 degrees for an hour. Whisk the mixture until smooth and let it cool before using.
