This recipe was born out of a desire to have cheesecake, but I wasn’t in the mood for a cherry topping like I normally am. Nah, I was in the mood for chocolate!
Now, I know that some people in this world actually make a chocolate cheesecake. I would like to meet those people. I would like to be one of those people. But I haven’t not yet become one of those people.
Til’ then, I just made my normal no-bake cheesecake and used some random Snickers I had in my freezer. What!? You don’t have Snickers in your freezer!? I don’t understand – Where do you hide candy from your kids, if not the freezer?
Seriously though, frozen Snickers are pretty good. (Really, all Snickers are pretty good!). Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are probably the best when frozen, just in case you’re wondering.
Like I said, this No Bake Snickers Cheesecake is just my normal No Bake Cheesecake, but with snickers on top. You can use a different kind of candy (but maybe not Starburst or something fruit-y…although I wouldn’t judge).
If you wanna get all crazy, you can drizzle more caramel sauce on top. Or chocolate sauce. Or even chop up some of the candy bars for the inside of the cheesecake (again, I don’t judge!).
But what you must do? Eat this cheesecake!
