"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 cup pecan pieces, divided
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups crushed Nilla Wafers (about 50 wafers)


4 pkg (250g) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp vanilla
4 eggs


24 Kraft Caramels
1 Tbsp water
3 squares Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted.

Crust: Line 9x13" baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Remove 1/2 cup of the pecans; set aside. Finely chop remaining pecans. Mix wafer crumbs, chopped pecans and butter. Press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. Refrigerate until ready to use. Cheesecake: Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream, flour and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Topping: Place caramels in microwaveable bowl. Add water. Microwave on high 1 minute or until caramels are completely melted when stirred. Pour over cheesecake; top with the reserved pecans. Drizzle chocolate over cheesecake. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting into pieces to serve. Store any leftovers in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
