Step 3Meanwhile, place the cold water (60ml (1/4 cup) cold water) in a small heatproof jug. Sprinkle over the gelatine (3 tsp gelatine powder). Place the jug in a saucepan of simmering water and stir the gelatine for 2 minutes or until the gelatine dissolves. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
Step 4Combine the caramel spread (170g (2/3 cup) caramel spread or thick caramel sauce) and salt (1 tsp sea salt flakes, crumbed) in a small bowl. Use electric beaters to beat the cream cheese (500g cream cheese, at room temperature, chopped) and sugar (140g (2/3 cup) caster sugar) in a bowl until smooth. Gradually beat in the cream (500ml (2 cups) thickened cream) until well combined. Beat in the gelatine mixture.
Step 5Spoon half the cheesecake mixture into the prepared pan. Spoon over half the salted caramel. Use a skewer to create a swirled effect. Repeat with the remaining cheesecake mixture and salted caramel. Place cheesecake in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to set.
Step 6Serve the cheesecake sprinkled with a little extra sea salt (Sea salt flakes, crumbed, to serve (optional)), if desired.
