Step 1

1. Prepare the caramel: Heat the sugar in a saucepan until completely dissolved, stirring with a silicone spatula. Keep an eye on the sugar to prevent burning. Meanwhile, heat the cream until it begins to boil. Once all the sugar has melted, carefully add the hot cream to it while mixing well with a whisk. Remove from heat and add the butter, stirring until smooth. Pass the caramel through a sieve to remove any lumps. This amount of caramel is enough for the cheesecake and the base, with a bit left over for decoration.

Step 2

2. Make the crispy layer: Put the caramel, butter, oatmeal, and chopped nuts in a pan. Fry, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Ensure even mixing to prevent burning. Spread and compact the mixture in an 18-20cm (7.09-7.87 inch) mold.

Step 3

3. Prepare the cheese mass: Whip the cream and melt the chocolate. In a mixer bowl, combine the cream cheese, warm caramel, and Baileys. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Add the melted chocolate and combine thoroughly. Finally, add the whipped cream and combine well. Ensure the mixture is smooth and lump-free. Pour the cheese mass over the crispy base and place the cheesecake in the fridge for 3-4 hours until completely solidified.

  • Why did my caramel crystallize?

    It likely happened because the sugar wasn't completely dissolved. Ensure you stir patiently until all grains are melted.

  • How do I know when my cheesecake is ready?

    Give it a gentle wobble. If it jiggles slightly in the center and looks set around the edges, it's ready to chill in the fridge.

  • Can I substitute the Baileys with another liqueur?

    Absolutely! Coffee liqueurs like Kahlúa work beautifully, or you can omit the alcohol altogether for a booze-free treat.

  • How can I make my cheesecake extra creamy?

    Make sure all your cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps, and don't overmix to keep the texture light and airy.

  • Is a water bath necessary for baking cheesecakes?

    For this no-bake version, a water bath isn't needed. But for baked cheesecakes, it helps to prevent cracks.

  • What's the best way to slice my cheesecake cleanly?

    Use a sharp knife dipped in hot water and wipe it clean after each cut. This ensures neat, picture-perfect slices.
