Praline Crumb Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake is a dessert that everyone in my family loves. I turn to it for our annual gatherings more than any other sweet, and it never disappoints. This decadent cheesecake bar from Bettycrocker combines the irresistible flavors of cheesecake, a nutty crust, caramel and a praline-like topping  make this dessert extra special. Cutting into bars makes them easier to serve to a crowd than cake.
