Snickers Cheesecake Bars

If you've read any of my recent recipes, you obviously know I have a problem. I am obsessed with cheesecake. So here we go...next on the list is Snickers Cheesecake Bars. 
These bars are super creamy with the perfect Oreo crust. The bits and pieces of Snickers throughout add just the right amount of sweetness.
I could probably eat cheesecake every day. But, since my metabolism doesn't agree with me, I had to figure out a way to not feel so guilty eating them. I cut the fat by using fat free cream cheese and Greek yogurt. You can't even taste a difference!
This cheesecake recipe is deliciously indulgent and perfect for anyone that loves an ooey gooey Snickers bar. It was a huge hit with with our friends and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! :)

Snickers Cheesecake Bars
1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (I used Oreos)
4 tablespoons melted butter
12 ounces (1 1/2 packages) plain cream cheese, softened (I used reduced fat)
1 large egg
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup fat free Greek yogurt
16 Snickers Minis, chopped into bite-sized pieces
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips 
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with foil.

For the Crust:
Stir the cookie crumbs and butter together in a bowl. Press into the lined pan. Bake for 7-10 minutes and then cool while you make the filling.

For the Filling:
Beat cream cheese, egg, sugar, and Greek yogurt, and vanilla together with a hand or stand mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir in your candy pieces and spread the mixture over your cooled crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake has set up. Let cool completely.

For the Chocolate Glaze:
Melt the chocolate and butter together over a double boiler, or carefully in the microwave for 20 second intervals. Stir until smooth. Spread the glaze over the bars using a silicone spatula or offset frosting spatula. Chill for at least 3 hours before cutting into bars.


  1. Wow!!! Definitely, cheesecake bars to die for... I am drooling!!!!!

  2. I made your snickers cheesecake bars and they were a hit! I substituted the oreos for graham crackers since I didn't have any oreos around, but they still came out great! I'm glad I got to find your recipe! Thank you!
