Candy Apple Cheesecake

  • Time for preparation: 15 minutes
  • Time for cooking: 60 minutes
  • Number of portions: 8-10



  • 40 pieces (8 oz.) Werther’s Original Chewy Caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 prepared 9 oz graham cracker crust
  • ½ lb. cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ lb. ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 40 pieces (8 oz.) Werther’s
  • Original Chewy Caramels, unwrapped
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling, ¼ cup reserved
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Filling procedure:

Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl at medium speed until fluffy. Melt the heavy cream and the caramel together over a double boiler, stirring frequently. Set aside. Whisk the sour cream, eggs and vanilla together until completely combined. Slowly beat into the cheese until smooth. Mix in the melted caramel with a spoon then the apples, cinnamon and sugar.


Pour the apple filling into the prepared crust. Place on a sheet pan and put it in the oven. Pour some water on the sheet pan so it is ¼ of the way up the edge of the pan. Bake at 325°F for 1-½ hours, or until the toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Serve well-chilled topped with a little of the reserved apple.

Serves 8-10
