Snickers Cheesecake

These days is not an afternoon for restraint, or weight-reduction plan, or maybe my common "as herbal as viable" food. today, we're making one in all my favourite versions of my absolute preferred indulgence : cheesecake. And no longer simply any cheesecake: a Snickers Cheesecake.

While served cooled from the oven, it is smooth and creamy, but my favored manner to serve it's miles after you've got chilled the cheesecake in a single day, making it extra of a new york style cheesecake.

The toppings on this cheesecake are absolutely optional, but they do upload a ton of "Wow" component, AND make the entire baking process significantly much less stressful via putting off any worry of a cracked pinnacle.

Yep, your cheesecake may additionally crack, but it is okay because you could douse it in caramel sauce and nuts and extra Snickers and greater caramel and greater nuts and ... properly, you get the concept.

Low-strain cheesecake is where it is at, human beings. you may pontificate water baths all you want, and i'm a believer of them, too, however every now and then you just do not want the FUSS of all of that.

  • 24 Oreos regular "stuff", not Double Stuff
  • 5 tablespoons Butter melted
  • 32 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a food processor, process the Oreos ( filling and all ) until they are completely crushed.
  3. Mix in the melted butter ( I do this in the food processor -- Just pour the butter in and process for a few more pulses until the butter is completely combined ).
  4. Press into a greased, 9” Spring Form pan with at least 3" high sides ( this is taller than standard!!!! )
  5. Bake for 8 minutes.
  6. In a heavy-duty mixer, mix cream cheese, white sugar, and sour cream until combined and smooth.
  7. Mix in the three eggs until just combined.
  8. Fold in the chopped up Mini Snickers.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn oven off. Let sit for two hours in the oven.
  10. To Make the Caramel Topping ( Optional ) : In a heavy-bottomed pan set to medium heat, whisk the brown sugar, half and half, and butter until the butter melts and the entire mixture starts to foam. Slowly whisk the mixture for 3 - 5 minutes, until it thickens slightly.
