2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Add butter; stir until moist clumps form. Press mixture over bottom and 1 inch up sides of 10-inch-diameter springform pan. Bake crust until just set, about 5 minutes. Set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

1/2-inch pieces

Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until blended. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, blending well after each addition. Beat in both extracts. Pour half of mixture into prepared crust; sprinkle with toffee pieces. Pour remaining mixture over. Bake until edges are puffed but center is barely set, about 55 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare topping:

Topping
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Assorted candies (such as gumdrops
and holiday M&M's)

Mix sour cream, sugar and vanilla extract in medium bowl until smooth. Pour topping over hot cheesecake. Bake cake until topping is just set, about 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool 10 minutes. Run knife between cake and pan sides. Chill cake uncovered overnight.

Remove pan sides and place cake on platter. Garnish top with candies.
