Easy Salted Caramel Cheesecake with Help From The Cheesecake Factory

Cheesecake Factory Makes Boxed Mixes

One of our favorite restaurants in The Cheesecake Factory. It doesn’t matter what they have on the menu, it’s all good. We like to go there for our family birthdays. The problem is after I eat my delicious meal, I am not hungry for the dessert that I originally went in for.

Can you imagine my delight when I found out they now make boxed Cheesecake mixes to make at home?

They come in 3 flavors,  Classic, Strawberry and Salted Caramel.

Three Cheesecake Factory box mixes

Easy Salted Caramel Cheesecake

I enjoy making desserts and my daughter was so excited that for a week she asked me daily when I was going to make the Cheesecake.

My only conflict was which one I was going to make first. So I decided to make all three but starting with the Salted Caramel Cheesecake and then moving on to the Strawberry and finally ending up with the Classic.

Ingredients Needed

Before you make your boxed cheesecake mix, here’s what you’ll need from the store.

  • Eggs
  • Heavy Cream
  • Sour Cream
  • Cream Cheese
  • Melted Butter
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Powdered Sugar

The box says to use milk with the mix. I substituted heavy cream and sour cream for the milk. I think it gives it a richer flavor.

Tools You Need

Before you begin baking, I recommend you have these kitchen tools. They will make the entire process so much easier (and more enjoyable).

  • Electric Mixer
  • Springform Pan
  • Plastic Spatula

I made my cheesecake in a 6″ Springform Pan instead of an 8″ pan on Box
I used the Chef notes on box and substituted Heavy Cream and Sour Cream for Milk.
I added 15 -20 minutes time by using a 6″ Pan and a taller cheesecake

Top With Homemade Whipped Cream

I mixed together powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream and made my own whipped topping. Then, I just piped it right onto my cheesecake. It’s so pretty and delicious!

How To Spread Caramel on Cheesecake

Heat up the caramel with hot water for 5 minutes to soften it up before spreading on cheesecake. The fun thing about these new box mixes is that you can add your own touch to them to make them your own.

Sprinkle Sea Salt On Top

For a little extra delight, sprinkle a dash of sea salt on top of the cheesecake. This will give it the authentic salted caramel taste and texture!

I didn’t add the sea salt, but I’ve heard lots of people say they have and they loved it. So give it a try.

  1. I’ve made this cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory a couple time. Both I have had a problem with it not setting in the center. Suggestions?

    1. I would turn the heat setting down 25 degrees and leave it in about 15 minutes longer. Continue to add 15 minutes until you feel it is done. Your pan may also be too small, where it is a thicker cheesecake.
