This cheesecake was my husband's birthday dessert request. It turned out to be an extremely deliciously decadent dessert that you just couldn't stop eating!
Making a cheesecake was a lot simpler than I though it would be and I look forward to many more in the future!
This recipe serves 6-8.
9 oz. Oreo cookies, ground into fine pieces
4 TBSP butter, melted
24 oz., cream cheese, softened
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 C heavy cream
Fun size Snickers bars (a bag full - around 1.5 lbs.), cut into smaller squares (each piece is cut into 6-8 smaller pieces)
fudge dessert/ice cream topping
You will also need a 9.5"-10" springform pan to make any kind of large cheesecake.
Preheat the oven to 325.
Combine the Oreo crumbs and butter together.
Press the Oreo crust mixture into the bottom and about halfway up the sides of the pan.
In a separate bowl, use a mixer on medium speed and cream together the cream cheese and sugar for about 1-2 minutes.
Mix in the eggs one at a time.
Add the vanilla and cream and beat the mixture for another 3-4 minutes on medium speed.
Using a spoon or a spatula, fold in 1 1/2 C of the Snickers pieces.
Pour the mixture into the crust lined pan.
Bake for 1 hour + 15-25 minutes until the cheesecake looks slightly done but can still "jiggle" in the middle.
Allow the cheesecake to cool to room temperature.
Sprinkle the remaining Snickers pieces on top and drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours before slicing and serving.
