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 is a really decadent dessert that'll vanish the minute you serve it. Trust us, it did in the Test Kitchen. This tastes just like a Snickers bar. In fact, it may be better than the candy! We just loved the creaminess of the filling and the gooey nutty layer. Then you have the nuts and caramel syrup... scrumptiously sweet! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Snickers "No Bake" Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Process chocolate graham crackers until fine crumbs. Add sugar and melted butter and 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 and evenly pour caramel sauce over the top of the cheesecake mixture and 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 up Snickers bar,
    chocolate shavings and caramel and chocolate sauce swirls.
