For the Crust

  • 2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs (about 20 Oreo cookies with the cream removed)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the Oreo cookie crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter.
  3. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated and the mixture resembles wet sand.
  4. Press this Oreo cookie mixture into the bottom of your 9-inch springform pan. Make sure it's spread out evenly and firmly pressed into the pan.
  5. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove it from the oven and let it cool.

For the Cheesecake Filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until it's smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  4. Mix in the sour cream, and heavy cream until the batter is smooth and silky.
  5. Place the chopped Snickers bars over the cooled crust in the springform pan.
  6. Pour the prepared mixture halfway into the pan.
  7. Drizzle the peanut butter and caramel sauce on top.
  8. Pour the rest of the prepared mixture into the pan.
  9. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles.
  10. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes, or until the edges are set, but the center still has a slight wobble.
  11. Turn off the oven, crack the oven door open, and let the cheesecake cool for about an hour in the warm oven.
  12. Remove it from the oven and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
  13. Place some chopped Snicker bars on top of the cheesecake and generously drizzle with caramel and chocolate sauce. Serve and enjoy.


How can I prevent cracks from forming on the surface of the cheesecake?

To prevent cracks, it's essential not to overbake the cheesecake. Be sure to follow the recommended baking time and the cooling process. However, even if cracks do appear, they won't affect the taste of the cheesecake and can always be covered by delicious toppings.

Is it necessary to refrigerate the cheesecake overnight?

While it's not absolutely necessary, refrigerating the cheesecake overnight allows it to set fully and intensifies the flavors. If you can't wait that long, aim for a minimum of 4 hours in the fridge.

How do I store any leftovers?

If you have any slices left, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

Happy Baking!
