Snickers Bar Chunks Cheesecake

I really couldn’t find this delicious recipe I saw once long time ago. It was a cheesecake with chunks of Oreo, can you imagine that???. I’m not a huge fan of Oreos {weird right?} but that one looked so delicious!… Then I though, what if I change the Oreos for Snickers? And I answered myself “YUMMMMM” Let’s do it!

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

History of the cheesecake:

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?

Here is the recipe, hope you like it!

Ingredients:

Cheesecake

  • Vanilla
  • Cream cheese {Room temperature}
  • White sugar
  • Snickers Bar
  • Eggs

Topping

  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Light cream
  • Snickers Bar

Crust

  • Cashew graham cracker {you can use any kind graham cracker but with honey or nuts are great}
  • Melted unsalted butter

Directions:

For the crust. Turn the graham crackers into crombs with a food processor. When the crombs are very small add the melted butter and mix for about 2 min to blend it well.

Butter or spray 9″ springform pan.  Pour the mixture in the pan and press and pat into bottom until it’s even. Bake at 350 ºF degrees 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and eggs {one at a time}, until fluffy {about 3-5 minutes}. Transfer filling to prepared crust. Make chunks of snickers bars with hands.

Add the chunks al over the mixture.

Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 1 1/2 hours. Bring cake to rack and run a small knife around the sides of the cake to loosen. Let it cool completely.

For the topping, place the chocolate chips, light cream, and snicker bar {chunks} in a bowl and melt everything on bain-marie {hot water bath}.

When you see it all soft, mix well with a spoon or whisk. It must be a little bit thick.

Pour it on top of the cheesecake unevenly as much as you like. Place snickers chunks all over the cheesecake on top of everything. Cover cake with plastic wrap and chill cake overnight.
