Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake

So, without further ado… I present Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake!

Like most cheesecakes, this cheesecake recipe starts by making a graham cracker crust. Both regular or chocolate-flavored graham crackers work well in this recipe.

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)

Luscious Mixture

Just look at this luscious chocolate cream cheese mixture. Umm… Need I say more?

Ready to Bake

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.)

Sliced Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake

While my family loves all types of cheesecake, Snickers Chocolate Cheesecake is probably one of our favorites.

Heath Bits Cheesecake , German Chocolate Cheesecake, and Caramel Pecan Chocolate Cheesecake are front-runners as well.

In addition, Pumpkin-Chai Cheesecake with Caramel-Rum Sauce and Cheesecake Cupcakes are yet a couple of other great versatile (non-chocolate) options. 


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!)

Here’s to all of you cheesecake monsters out there! 


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.
