Snickers Cheesecake

This is the other amazing creation I came up with for another amazing friend that helped watch our furry babies while we were off gallivanting across the Four Corners. We all shared this one together after the perogie sausage casserole with a bottle of 50 Shades of Grey wine 😉

So here is one for Alanna and chocolate lovers everywhere!!!  

Crust:(I think I’m going to try something different next time)

2 cups crushed Nilla Wafers

4 tbsp butter

Filling:

8 oz Regular cream cheese

8 oz Milk Chocolate cream cheese

16 oz Sour Cream

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 snickers bar chopped

Caramel Ice Cream Topping

4 oz peanuts chopped

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the Nilla wafers with the butter. Press into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. Add the chopped Snickers bar. Put in the oven for 15 minutes. Cool in the fridge while preparing the filling. 

In a mixer beat the cream cheese till blended and smooth. Add sour cream and keep mixing. Now it’s time to add the sugar. Mix completely. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

Now we’re going to try something a little different. Pour half the filling in the springform pan. Sprinkle on half the peanuts. Then drizzle on as much of that yummy caramel as your little heart desires, but save some for round 2. Now put that in the oven for about 20 minutes. For round 2 pour in the rest of the filling, sprinkle on the rest of the peanuts, drizzle on some more caramel and sprinkle on the mini chocolate chips. Put it back in the oven for another 40-ish minutes. Remember that you are looking for the top to crack a little and not much movement when you jiggle the pan. Let it sit in the oven for an hour after baking. Then move to the fridge for about 4 hours. 

Get ready for some tasty eating!! It’s really good with a white wine 🙂
