Snickers Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
In the meantime, while she’s gone, I’m baking up a storm and working like a madwoman. First up, Mini Snickers Cheesecakes. I love a mini cheesecake, don’t you? They’re the best. As much as I love traditional cheesecakes, the minis are just so much easier. This recipe makes 12 perfect cheesecakes, which make them great for a party or when you just want a little cheesecake. You can even freeze the leftovers!
I turned these into Snickers cheesecakes because we LOVE Snickers. They have an Oreo crust – I just popped an Oreo into each muffin cup. No need to crush or mix with butter. They fit perfectly and form their own crust.
Ingredients in Snickers Cheesecake
- Oreos – This is the crust. No need to crush them; a whole Oreo fits in a muffin pan easily.
- Cream Cheese – be sure it’s room temperature!
- Sour Cream – make sure it’s room temperature!
- Sugar – granulated sguar is used to sweeten the cheesecake.
- Egg – be sure it’s room temperature!
- Vanilla – always buy PURE vanilla extract.
- Mini Snickers – You can use the little square ones or cut a fun size one in half.
- Toppings: Once cool, top them with caramel, hot fudge, and MORE Snickers before serving.
How to make Mini Cheesecakes with Snickers
- Line a cupcake pan with liners for easy removal.
- Place one Oreo cookie in the bottom of each muffin cup. Top with a Snickers.
- Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, egg, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
- Fill muffin liners with cheesecake batter. Bake until puffed and solid.
- Cool to room temperature then chill overnight before serving.
- Make sure all your cold ingredients are room temperature to avoid lumps in your cheesecake.
- Mini Snickers are the best because you don’t have to cut them to go inside the cheesecake bites.
- Top these once cooled before serving.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
