Snickers Cheesecake Bars

I apologize in advance for making you gain ten pounds just by looking at the picture.  But dang these are good!   My three favorite things in a bar.  Snickers, oreos, and cheesecake in a bar.  Are you kidding me?

snickerscheesecakefinal In a previous post I mentioned that I used to hate chocolate.  Until I was 15!  Snickers broke me of my hate for chocolate.  I started by peeling the chocolate back and eating the nougat and peanuts and caramel.  I know I am so weird.  I eventually would eat the entire bar, but Snicker’s are definitely my favorite!  Apparently they are the world’s favorite too coming in as the #1 candy bar!

A delicious oreo crust with a creamy cheesecake center.  The snickers softens and the caramel just oozes out.  And the chocolate chips on top complete this zero calorie dessert perfectly.  Just kidding they aren’t zero calories.  Hehe  Don’t worry about the calories with these.  You just need to try a little bite!  They are too die for!

Author:
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 20 Oreos
  • 5 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 fun size snickers, chopped (about 1.5 cups total)
  • ⅓ cup milk chocolate chips, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8x8 baking pan by lining it with aluminum foil allowing the sides to overhang for easy removal.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the oreos into a fine crumb. In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir the crushed cookies and butter together. Press into the bottom of the pan and bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Beat the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla together until it has a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Fold in the chopped snickers and spread over the crust. Top with chocolate chips and bake it doe 30-35 minutes or until cheesecake is set.
  5. You have to cool completely in the refrigerator for 3 hours. The waiting is the hardest part. Once cooled, lift the foil out of the pan and cut into small squares. Enjoy!

  1. So glad you made my recipe! These are one of the most popular cheesecake bars I have in my recipe archive. I love Snickers! What did you end up adapting?

  2. These look incredible! Snickers cheesecake is my husband’s favorite, I’ll have to make these for him soon!

  3. I’ve always wanted to make this recipe of Sally’s. Her bars always look so good! What a perfect summertime treat!

  4. Holy sugar coma, I need this in my life! This looks amazing!

  5. Pulling out the fat jeans, thanks Alyssa. . . ;). Dang woman, you’ve outdone yourself, these are screaming of deliciousness!!

  6. OMG… these look incredible! And yes, I do think I just gained 10 pounds looking at these images! 😉

  7. Yeah, I definitely just gained 5 pounds! These look SO worth it though!!

  8. Oh girl! These look outrageously delicious!

  9. Alyssa, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful blog with the world! I am thrilled to have found this site! I love trying new recipes, especially desserts, so your blog has been my new go-to place. So far I’ve tried the caramel brownies and the cheesecake bars pictured above. Oh my goodness! So delicious and easy! Besides singing your praises, I did have one question about the cheesecake bars. When they are completely done cooking, it says to let them set in the fridge for three hours. How long do you wait before putting the bars in the fridge? Do you let them cool to room temperature first or place them in still warm? I’ve never made any type of cheesecake these before so sorry if this is a silly question. When I made them, I put the bars in the fridge when they were quite warm. They turned out great, but I’m still interested to get your take on this. Thanks again for your wonderful blog!

  10. I just made this the other day and ot was delicious! I couldn’t find the snack size snickers so I chopped up 3 regular sized snickers bars which seemed to be a good equivalent to the mini ones.

    EXCELLENT

  13. Do you think you could use the greek yogurt cream cheese or Neufchatel in place of regular cream cheese?
