  • Using a butter knife, Swirl the caramel sauce around the cheesecake, until well distributed.

  • Place in oven and bake until the carrot cake mixture is golden, and the cheesecake is set when you wiggle the pan. (It's ok if it moves a little, but just so it's fully cooked in the middle).
  • Once done baking, sprinkle the white chocolate chips on the hot bars.
  • Let the white chocolate chips melt a little (about 10 minutes) then place in the fridge for about 2-3 hours.
  • Serve cold or at room temperature.
