Have you seen the Recipe Girl blog? Of course you have, I think most everyone has! On her blog Lori shares over 2,500 great recipes, and one of them happens to be this little diddy.
A Snickers Bar Cheesecake Pie. Talk about the most perfect idea EVER.
I found it a little bit by accident. See, I was having some friends over for dinner and realized at the very last second that I needed a fabulous dessert. I remembered that I had just gotten Lori’s book so I thumbed through to the dessert section. There (among some other pretty fabulous options) was this sweet concoction.
As you can imagine, I was instantly drawn to the decadent flavors. Snickers is my second favorite candy bar of all time, so you can imagine how excited I got when I saw it was paired with Oreo crust and cheesecake.
Then topped with whipped cream, caramel sauce, hot fudge and MORE snickers? I was in HEAVEN.
Truth be told, I made two of these in 48 hours. And I don’t regret it for one single second.
The whole fabulous experience begins when you get to cut up 16 snack size snickers bars. It just so happens that there were 19 bars in the bag, which was the perfect amount for the filling of the cheesecake and then to garnish the top.
This was NOT the perfect amount if you have zero self control and just HAD to snack on one or seven of those sweet little bites as you were slaving away over the cutting board.
Just buy two bags.
I cheated and bought Oreo’s ready made pie crusts. I simply cannot be trusted with a bag of Oreo’s in my house and this is by far the easiest option.
You can top your cheesecake with anything you would like. Lori recommends caramel syrup, chocolate syrup, peanuts and more snickers. I simply added whipped cream and omitted the peanuts on mine.
Oh my gosh this is amazing. Lori mentions in the book that her son, Recipe Boy, has won many a pie contest with this recipe, and I can see why!
This Snickers Cheesecake is a keeper!
