Toblerone Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake

This cheesecake has become a favourite in our house and one that I traditionally make at Christmas time. It's a rich cheesecake but so delicious.....

1 1/4 cups Oreo Baking Crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
3- 250g pkgs. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1- 100g Toblerone Swiss Milk chocolate coarsely chopped.

Heat oven to 350 F. Mix crumbs and butter; press onto bottom on 9-inch springform pan. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust. Bake 40-45 minutes; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours. Spread caramel topping over cheesecake just before serving. Garnish with chopped chocolate. Enjoy!!!
