Anyone who loves cheesecake and Snickers candy bars will appreciate this recipe for Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake!
First of all, I am super excited to participate in this month’s recipe challenge with several other amazing bloggers. The theme for our recipe creations this month is chocolate. (Probably because we all love chocolate so much.) A list of all of the other amazing chocolate recipe contributions can be found at the end of this post.
So, without further ado…. I present Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake!
Like most cheesecakes, this cheesecake recipe starts by making a graham cracker crust. Whether you use regular or chocolate flavored graham crackers really doesn’t matter because either one will taste great.
It seems that Snickers is high on the list for the most popular candy bars. Therefore these chopped morsels of yumminess really do send this recipe over the top! (Tip: buy a few extra candy bars to nibble on while you create this recipe. Lol)
Just look at those chopped Snickers being added to a luscious chocolaty cream cheese mixture. Umm… Need I say more?
I surrounded the bottom of the springform pan with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Before baking, I place the foil-lined springform pan into another baking pan with sides, along with approximately 1-inch of hot water to create a water bath. This process is especially relevant and prevents the cheesecake from cracking.
Now it was time to bake this scrumptious concoction in my preheated 325 degrees F oven for approximately 75 – 80 minutes. It was finished when the center was barely set and the top appeared dull.
While it looks rather plain at this stage, this cheesecake lends itself well to almost any combination of candy bars. Allow me to explain.
Rather than toss out leftover candy bars (is there such a thing?) feel free to use them in place of Snickers. Because this chocolate cheesecake recipe is so versatile you can potentially create almost any candy bar combination. Even a gluten-free version! (See the note at the end of this post.)
Now once the Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake was cool I slid it onto my pretty cake platter. A sprinkle of chopped candy bars and a healthy drizzle of chocolate and caramel syrups provided the final touch.
Finally, just look at all of that lusciousness!
While my husband loves all types of cheesecake, Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake is probably his favorite.
This Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake is such a delectable dessert so it’s perfect for any occasion, event or holiday. (Think Valentine’s Day, Father’s or Mother’s Day and Christmas!)

Note: I personally spoke with a representative for Mars, Incorporated who is the maker of Snickers candy bars. Snickers ingredients are gluten-free but the manufacturing facility is not. Therefore, Mars, Incorporated does not promote Snickers candy bars to be gluten-free because of potential cross-contamination during processing. Therefore, Snickers are NOT considered to be gluten-free.
