A rich and indulgent salty sweet dessert. You will love everything about this salted caramel cashew cheesecake.
One of the first blogs I read and fell in love with was Sprinkles Bakes. I loved the incredibly unique desserts and incredible decorating. Heather is a serious genius. I was intimidated by so many of the desserts and techniques used in her first book, but when Sea Salt Sweet came out, I needed it. I love that sweet salt combination. So months later, I finally bought the book and delved in. I loved everything, but the salted caramel cashew cheesecake stuck out for me.
I love salted nuts and caramel together and could only imagine how amazing cashews were with a nice dark caramel. You can use a lighter caramel if you want, but for me darker caramel is the best. It has so much more depth to the flavor and pairs really well with a sweet dessert like cheesecake. My guess was right. Salted cashews and caramel is possibly the best combination ever. Next time I make this cheesecake, I think I will need to cover the entire cheesecake in the mixture, not just the edges.
