Delicious snickers cheesecake bars recipe that is swirled with chopped up snickers on top of an Oreo crust. Will definitely be your new favorite dessert!
About a week or so ago I had a taste for cheesecake. Of course, I didn’t want just a slice of a simple cheesecake! It had to contain something special and I mean really special – like snickers!
These awesome cheesecake bars can be made with any fun-sized candy bars that you have laying around; however, I think they rock with snickers!
After making these, I have so many more different ideas of fun cheesecake bar recipes. You guys are so lucky!
Even though you can use any type of fun-sized candy bars, I think the snickers bring a lot to the table because of all of the chocolate, caramel, and nuts. These bars have a just over-the-top on flavor – you’ll love them.
They are actually very easy to make, but they do require at least 3 hours of chilling time – same kind of chilling time as regular cheesecake would need. Making these the night or even the morning you need them are great – the longer they chill, the better they are.
For the crust you will need unsalted butter and 20 regular Oreos processed in a food processor. That process does not take too long.
For the cheesecake layer, you will need an egg, white granulated sugar 14 fun-sized Snickers, and vanilla extract. Not too many ingredients!
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- 20 Oreo Cookies
- 16 ounces 2 packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup white granulated sugar
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 14 fun-sized Snickers chopped tiny pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil, light grease. Set aside.
Crust - Pulse the Oreo cookies in a food processor into fine crumbs. Add into a medium mixing bowl.
Pour the melted butter into the mixing bowl with the crushed Oreos. Mix together.
Pour the crust into the baking dish, using a large spatula spread out the crust. Make sure it is even all around.
Filling - In a large mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese and egg and mix for 3-5 minutes until it is creamy.
Add in the white granulated sugar and vanilla extract.
Fold in the chopped Snickers.
Spoon the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake has set-up and the edges are lightly browned.
Allow for the bars to cool for 30 minutes at room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Overnight is best.
Lift the foil of out the pan and cut into squares.
Store bars in a covered container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator - if they last that long!
