For the Crust
  1. 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  2. 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  3. 1 tablespoon cocoa
For the Filling
  1. 2- 8oz blocks of cream cheese, room temperature
  2. 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  6. 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
For the Caramel
  1. 6 tablespoons light corn syrup
  2. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. 1/2 cup heavy cream- room temperature
  5. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
For the Crust
  1. Add butter and cocoa to graham cracker crumbs and mix until moistened.
  2. Pour into pan and press into the bottom to make an even base.
  3. Place in freezer while you make the filling.
For the Filling
  1. In large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and salt; blend until smooth.
  2. Add eggs, then heavy cream, and finally chocolate; blend filling until smooth.
  3. Pour filling onto crust, and bake just until set, 1 hour.
  4. Turn oven off, and let cheesecake sit 1 hour in oven, without opening (this helps prevent cracking).
For the Caramel
  1. While the cheesecake is cooling, prepare the caramel sauce.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the corn syrup.
  3. Stir in the sugar and cook over medium heat (without stirring) until a deep amber caramel forms, about 9 minutes.
  4. Carefully stir in the butter.
  5. Remove from heat and carefully stir in cream in a slow, thin stream.
  6. Transfer the caramel to a heatproof bowl and let cool.
  7. Stir in sea salt.
  8. Pour the cooled caramel over the cooled cheesecake and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  9. Sprinkle with a dash of sea salt before serving.
