Ingredients List

  1. 2 cups (500 mL) ground up chocolate wafer cookies
  2. 6 Tbsp. (90 mL) Becel® salted margarine sticks, melted
  3. 14 ounces (400 g) soft caramels
  4. 5 floz (150 mL) evaporated milk
  5. 1 cup (250 mL) chopped pecans, toasted
  6. 1 lb. (500 g) cream cheese, softened
  7. 1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
  8. 1 tsp. (5 mL) vanilla extract
  9. 2 eggs
  10. 1/2 cup (125 mL) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted


1. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Grease a 9-inch (23-cm) springform pan.

2. Combine wafer crumbs and melted Becel® sticks. Press into bottom and up sides of springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.

3. Melt caramels with evaporated milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Pour over crust and sprinkle with pecans.

4. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour over pecan layer, dollop with melted chocolate and then swirl to marble.
