Snickers No-Bake Cheesecake

Lisa Mersereau


We love cheesecake and the twins love Snickers. What could satisfy everybody? I decided to try making a Snickers Cheesecake. What could be better than that? A no-bake cheesecake that's what.

This decadent no-bake cheesecake will vanish the minute you serve it. Trust us, it did in the Test Kitchen. It has all the flavors of a Snickers bar. In fact, it may be better than the candy bar. It starts with an easy chocolate graham cracker crust that's underneath a very creamy cheesecake layer. We love the next layer that's gooey and nutty. On top, is a super chocolaty frosting. When serving, definitely drizzle with a bit of caramel and chocolate. This is a scrumptiously sweet no-bake dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  • 1/3 box
    chocolate graham crackers
  • 1/3 c
    butter, melted
  • 1/3 c
    granulated sugar

  • 8 oz
    cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 3/4 c
    powdered sugar
  • 1/3 c
    peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp
    caramel ice cream topping (I use Richardson's or Smucker's hot caramel sauce)
  • 1 pkg
    Cool Whip, thawed (8 oz container)

  • 8 oz
    caramel ice cream topping
  • 3/4 c
    salted peanuts

How to Make Snickers No-Bake Cheesecake


  1. Process chocolate graham crackers until fine crumbs. Add sugar and melted butter. Mix until incorporated. Press crumb mixture into a springform or deep-dish pie pan.
  2. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and caramel sauce until well blended. Mix in Cool Whip until thick, smooth, and creamy. Spread evenly in a pan over crust.
  3. Warm caramel sauce in a double boiler or microwave. Evenly pour caramel sauce over the top of the cheesecake mixture. Sprinkle with salted peanuts.

    At this point, I put the cheesecake in the freezer for around 30 minutes or so. It makes it easier to spread the chocolate frosting if the caramel sauce is chilled.
  4. Melt chocolate squares. Mix until smooth and creamy with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Gently spread chocolate cream cheese frosting over the top of the caramel and peanut layer.

    Let chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours. I prefer to let it chill overnight.
  5. Optional Fun Toppings: I top the cheesecake with a chopped Snickers bar and chocolate shavings with caramel and chocolate sauce swirls.
