For the crust

1 and 1/2 cups (148 g) graham cracker crumbs , from about 1 and 1/2 sleeves

6 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted

For the filling

24 ounces (680 g) cream cheese , softened

1 and 1/2 cups (180 g) confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 tablespoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup (238 ml) cold heavy whipping cream

3 Snickers candy bars, coarsely chopped

For the topping

1 Snickers candy bar, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup (113 g) homemade caramel sauce, store-bought can also be used


Make the crust

Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with foil or parchment paper: set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and melted butter. Mix until crumbs are well coated

with butter.

Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and an inch up the sides of the prepared pan. Set in the

freezer while you make the filling.

Make the filling

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with a handheld electric mixer, beat

the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.

Add the confectioners’ sugar and mix on low speed until the sugar is moistened. Then turn the

speed up to medium and continue mixing until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Add the vanilla, lemon juice, and salt. Mix on medium speed until well incorporated, about 1 minute.

If using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, switch to the whisk attachment and add the heavy

cream. Beat on low speed until the cream is well mixed in. Turn the speed up to high and beat until

the batter becomes thickened.

Gently fold in the chopped candy bars. Pour the filling over the prepared crust and spread to the

edges of the pan. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

Just before serving, remove the sides of the pan. Top the cheesecake with the remaining chopped

candy bar and drizzle with caramel sauce.
