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 though, 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!

How to make a Snickers Cheesecake

Ingredients:

Cheesecake

  • Cream cheese at room temperature – Use full-fat cream cheese and pull these out at least 2 hours before baking.
  • White sugar
  • Large eggs at room temperature
  • Snickers Bar
  • Vanilla extract

Topping

  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Heavy cream
  • Snickers bars
  • Caramel sauce.
  • Peanuts *optional

Crust

  • Cashew graham cracker – you can use any kind of graham cracker you like, Oreo cookies will work too.
  • Melted unsalted butter

Tools:

  • Food processor
  • Electric mixer

Directions:

The crust.

1. Turn the graham crackers into fine crumbs with a food processor.

2. When the crumbs are very small add the melted butter and mix for about 2 min to blend it well.

3. Butter or spray a 9″ spring form pan. 

4. Pour the mixture in the pan and press and pat into bottom until it’s even.

5. Bake in the oven at 350 ºF degrees for 5-10 minutes.

6. Set aside.

The Cheesecake Batter

1. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs – one at a time, until fluffy (about 3-5 minutes).

2. Transfer cheesecake filling to prepared crust.

3. Make chunks of snickers bars your with hands or cut with a knife.

4. Press the chunks al over the mixture evenly.

5. Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 1 1/2 hours.

6. Bring the cake to a wire rack and run a small knife around the sides of the cake to loosen it.

7. Let it cool completely.

The Topping

1. We’ll be making a chocolate ganache with snickers in it.

2. Place the chocolate chips, heavy cream, and chopped snickers bars in a bowl and melt everything on a bain-marie (double-boiler water bath) and stir often.

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

4. Pour a layer of caramel sauce on top of the baked cheesecake unevenly and as much as you like and then pour the chocolate ganache on top.

5. Place snickers chunks all over the cheesecake on top of everything.

6. Cover cake with plastic wrap and chill cake for about 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.

    1. Hi,
      The crust is homemade like any pie crust. The only difference is that the cracker I used had cashew. You can use any cracker you like, I just happened to find those crackers and used them on my cheesecake but it’s not a must. Any cracker will do. Hope this helps!
      Hugs
