Don't throw away that leftover Halloween candy. Turn it into this to-die-for Candy Bar Cheesecake that'll have even the pickiest ghouls and goblins raving!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped candy bars, divided
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker pie crust
  • 1/4 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese and sugar 2 minutes, or until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and continue beating until thoroughly combined.
  3. Reserve 8 pieces of candy for garnish. Stir remaining chopped candy into cream cheese mixture; mix well and pour into crust.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until almost set in center. Loosely cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. When ready to serve, garnish with whipped topping and reserved candy pieces.

can these be made into mini cheese cakes?

Yes the candy bar cheesecake could be made into mini cheesecakes, however, we have not tested it that way, so we dont know the cooking time.

Looks Yummy!

Question: Will 8 Funsize bars of Snickers candy bars yield enought candy as directed for the Candy Bar Cheesecake? My husband wants some of the candy. I'm hoping there will be enough in the bag to share and prepare this dessert. Thanks for your input.

Yes, 8 funsize bars should be plenty. It won't affect the result of the recipe. Enjoy!


i have always made cheesecakes in a pie pan!!!

Oh it's sooooo gooood!

Hallelujah - a cheesecake that can be made in something other than a springform pan which is used once or twice a year at most!! Cheesecake is always luscious, but I gave this 5 stars simply because I've been wanting to try baking a cheesecake in a regular pan. Thanks for having the nerve to risk it and share it with us, Mr. Food - and all the Ms. Foods who help you :)
