Snickers Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake laced with snickers. Have you heard of anything better? And it sits on an oreo crust. I made these for Mother's Day and they were a huge hit with my mom, and with everyone else. They are a delicious, rich treat and you'll want a cup of coffee or glass of milk...and then you'll want another one!

Start by making the crust. Pulse the cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. If you don't have a food processor, you can pound the cookies with a rolling pin, or use another favorite method. Combine the cookies with melted butter

and stir well until the crumbs are all coated. Press the cookies into a 9-inch pan that you've lined with foil.

Now bake the crust for about 8 minutes. While it bakes, chop up the Snickers. This is the hardest part, because it's difficult to not just pick up each piece and eat it!! Try to resist, because you'll want to add them to the cheesecake later!

(Snickers satisfies, indeed!)

Now for the filling, beat together the cream cheese, egg, vanilla and sugar.

When it's smooth, stir in the Snickers.

Pour the batter onto the Oreo crust

then sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cheesecake is mostly set and golden around the edges.

Cool the bars on a wire rack for about an hour, then cool completely in the refrigerator. Cut into bars, and store these in the refrigerator.

Snickers Cheesecake Bars

20 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
5 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened (low fat is ok)
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
3 full size snickers candy bars, chopped (about 1.5 cups total)
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips

In a food processor or blender, pulse the cookies into a fine crumb. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together and then press into a 9-inch pan lined with foil. Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes. Cool the crust while you prepare the filling.

In a large bowl, use a mixer to beat the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla until smooth and creamy, about 3 full minutes. Fold in the Snickers and spread the mixture over the cooled crust. Top with chocolate chips. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake has set up and the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator for at least three hours. Lift the foil out of the pan and cut into squares. Makes 16 bars.
