TRIPLE LAYER CAKE- 2 CHOCOLATE LAYERS & 1 CHEESECAKE LAYER FILLED WITH CARAMEL AND TOPPED WITH CHOCOLATE DIPPED OREOS






START THE FILLING WITH 40 CARAMELS

HERE IS MY CARAMEL TRANSFORMATION....

POUR IT ONTO A FROZEN CHEESECAKE LAYER...

MAKE THE CHOCOLATE CAKE OF YOUR CHOICE-2 LAYERS NEEDED...

SCOOP OUT A LITTLE TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE CARAMEL IN ONE LAYER...

LAYER YOUR CAKES...

FROST AND ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS....
ADD YOUR CHOCOLATE DIPPED AND DECORATED OREOS....
MAKE CHOCOLATE CAKE OF YOUR CHOICE. YOU'LL NEED TWO 9 INCH LAYERS. SCOOP OUT SOME OF THE CENTER ON ONE LAYER AND FREEZE YOUR LAYERS SOLID.

MAKE CRUSTLESS CHEESECAKE AND FREEZE:

Crustless Cheesecake portion:

1 stick softened butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2- 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 oz. package cook and serve vanilla pudding

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease ONE 9" pan with shortening, line the pan with parchment and then grease the parchment. Lightly butter the pan and Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add cream cheese a little at a time until smooth. Scrape bowl down and beat again on medium speed, adding eggs one at a time. Add remaining ingredients. Mix again until smooth.

Pour in pan. Smooth batter with offset spatula and bake for 45-50 mins. Cheesecake will puff up during baking, then deflate when taken out.

Do not turn out cheesecake when finished baking. Put directly in the freezer, and leave until frozen solid.

Turn out frozen cheesecake layersand peel parchment from the bottoms.
Put parchment in pan extending over sides and place cheesecake back in. Keep frozen.

Caramel:
In microwave, melt until smooth:
5 T. butter
one 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
40 caramels'

make caramel and pour half on one of the chocolate layers and half on this cheesecake layer. Keep all in the freezer.

frosting:
Melt 1 stick butter in the microwave. Beat it in mixer with 3 c. confectioners sugar, 2/3c. cocoa powder and 1/3c milk. Frosting recipe and chocolate chip idea from my friend Liz at That Skinny Chick Can Bake.

Assembly: layer cakes-chocolate/caramel, cheesecake/caramel, chocolate. Frost top and sides and cover with milk chocolate chips. I then dipped gf Oreos in melted milk chocolate and topped with mini m &m's and pb cups!
