Snickers Cheesecake Bars
Make your cheesecake handheld and portable, with these chocolate and peanut filled Snickers Cheesecake Bars! Chopped Snickers, a crunchy chocolate and peanut topping, and a drizzle of melted chocolate and caramel pair perfectly with creamy cheesecake and a chocolate cookie crust!
I’ve had a Snickers cheeseacke on my brain for a really long time. I’m not entirely sure why, since long-time readers know that I don’t like cheesecake. (Hate! Loathe!)
But my husband loves cheesecake and requests one every year for his birthday. I always think about doing a Snickers cheesecake, except we never have Snickers on hand.
Except for, apparently, now. Said husband may have gone just a smidge overboard buying Halloween candy at BJ’s a few weekends ago. Which means we had a giant bag of mini-sized Snickers.
So while this isn’t intended to be a Halloween candy related post, the timing is actually just right, if you, too, happen to have an awful lot of Snickers at the moment!
(Or you know, if you want to stop at the grocery store the day after Halloween and stock up!)
While I’ve been picturing a regular old cheesecake, I actually wound up making Snickers cheesecake bars.
I figured this was the perfect dessert to share with neighbors for our annual Trick or Treat celebration. We all sit out on our front steps together, order pizza, and hand out candy while enjoying each other’s company. But a slice of cheesecake means forks and plates, and isn’t super “sitting on the steps” friendly.
Snickers cheesecake bars, however — it’s basically hand held cheesecake. No fork, no plate, no nothing. Just you and a glorious bar of cheesecake in your hands.
So grab those Snickers, friends, and let’s make some Snickers cheesecake bars.
How to Make Snickers Cheesecake Bars
I like to make mine in my food processor, since I already use it to chop the cookies for the crust. And hello, why dirty another appliance when I can just reuse the same one?
But if you don’t have a food processor, a mixer works just fine.
These seriously could not be any easier. Dump the ingredients in, give your food processor or mixer a whirl, and you’re done. Fold in a bunch of chopped Snickers (any size works!). Top with some chopped peanuts and chocolate.
And then, if you feel like pushing it even further… a drizzle of melted chocolate and caramel.
Boom. Snickers cheesecake bars. Easy, handheld, perfect to share, and ridiculously delicious. If you like cheesecake, that is. (And I’m assuming you do, because why else are you reading a recipe for cheesecake bars?)
