Snickers Bar Chunks Cheesecake

I really couldn’t find the delicious recipe I saw once a long time ago. It was a cheesecake with chunks of Oreo, can you imagine that???. That one looked so delicious!

The thing is, I love Oreos but I’m not that obsessed with them so I thought, what if I change the Oreos for Snickers? And I answered myself “YUMMMMM” Let’s do it!

I learned the cheesecake recipe with my mom when I was a teen and I hadn’t changed it until now =O Shhhh, don’t tell her! LOL.

Did you know?

Cheesecakes are believed to be first made in Ancient Greece. They were made with honey, wheat flour, and pounded cheese. The Romans adopted the Greek’s recipe for the cheesecake and called it “placenta” or “libum.” They used cheesecakes as an offering to their gods. Cheesecakes absolutely taste and look so heavenly, they are fit for gods and goddesses!

Interesting, right?

So, here is the recipe, hope you like it as much as I did!

Recipe Tips

  • Want to intensify that Snickers flavor? Try Popping those snicker bars into the freezer for a couple of hours before using them in the recipe. Cold and firm snicker chunks in your cheesecake will avoid the pieces to melt way too much.
  • You can use a chocolate crust instead. Crush some Oreo cookies or even chocolate wafer cookies to create a rich and decadent base for the cheesecake.
  • Drizzle some caramel sauce over the cheesecake batter before baking. As it bakes, the caramel will swirl through the cheesecake, creating pockets of sweet goodness in every slice.
  • To achieve that perfect creamy texture in your cheesecake, bake it at a lower temperature for a longer time. Set your oven to 300°F (150°C) and let the cheesecake bake for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. This slow and gentle heat will help prevent cracking and ensure a velvety smooth filling.
