  • In the meantime prepare chocolate ganache and pour it on top of the cheesecake. Gently heat the cream in a small pan over a medium heat until small bubbles start to appear.
  • Pour it over the chocolate and leave for 1 minute without stirring, then mix gently until smooth. If it's too thick, add some more cream. Leave a side to cool down then pour it over your cheesecake, add some caramel sauce and by using toothpick make some patterns. 
  • Put the dessert in the fridge for a few hours until the mixture stiffens.
