FOR THE CRUST:
FOR THE CHEESECAKE:
FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:
1For the crust: mix the cracker crumbs, sugar and butter and press them into the bottom of a GREASED 8-inch square baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degrees oven until lightly golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes and set aside.
2For the cheesecake: cream the cream cheese, mix in the caramel sauce followed by the sugar, the egg, the vanilla extract and finally the mini Rolos and pour the mixture into the baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven until the cheesecake is SET, about 30 to 35 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
3For the chocolate ganache: melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler, mixing until SMOOTH and pour the chocolate over the cheesecake. Place the caramel sauce in the corner of a small plastic sandwich bag, cut a small hole in the corner and SLOWLY SQUEEZE out the caramel---creating lines across the chocolate. Use a toothpick to make lines in the caramel going in the other direction to create a WAVE LIKE PATTERN.
