Snickers Cheesecake

My daughter is crazy for Snickers Bars. But if you are going to tumble, tumble BIG! Mix those Snickers into a cheesecake! This is a very different cheesecake and it will serve several because it is so rich. I really like making my own cheesecakes because to buy a plain one costs so much. This way, I can experiment and try different versions and the cost is insignificant as to what you would pay at a bakery. The Snickers cheesecake is an especially nice way to dispose of Snickers bars after Halloween! It makes a cool company dessert when you drizzle your dessert plates with chocolate syrup or caramel sauce before serving.
Snickers Cheesecake
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon white sugar
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
3 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 (2.16 ounce) Snickers candy bars, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and 1 tablespoon sugar. Press into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
In a large bowl, cream the 3/4 cup of sugar and cream cheese together until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla. Stir in chopped candy bar, and pour into baked crust.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Let cool and carefully remove the springform pans side. Makes 1 - 9 inch springform pan.
