Mother's Day Caramel Dessert

wawajb | May 8, 2007 06:22 AM

I'm in charge of dessert for my boyfriend's mother's day dinner. He and his brother are cooking dinner for their mom together...but neither of them do sweets so that's my contribution. She loves caramel...and that's about all I know. No idea about chocolate, fruits...nothing. (and her sons are no help...which I think is terrible, what kind of son doesn't know if his mom likes chocolate? but that's a whole other issue)
They haven't made any decisions on their menu yet...but I don't expect they will until Saturday so I'm going to have to make a decision without knowing what dinner will be.

Right now I'm thinking a dulce de leche cheesecake, but I want a recipe with a regular cheesecake (and I'm a fan of creamier cheesecake) with a dulce de leche top layer. Does anybody have a recipe that fits the bill or suggestions for other caramel-ey desserts?

Two odd caveats...I do not own muffin tins and though they are not a big ticket item, they are not in the budget this month. So nothing that requires muffin tins. And the boys both HATE peaches with a deep and firey passion. So no peaches.
