Snickers Bar Cheesecake
1 (9-oz.) package chocolate wafer cookies
4 T. butter, melted
3 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 C. granulated sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
1 C. heavy cream
1 1/2 C. (10 fun-size bars) Snickers, each cut into sixths
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the food processor, finely grind cookies into crumbs. Add butter and process until well-blended. Press into bottom and about 1 inch up the sides of a 10-inch springform pan.
In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and scrape down sides of bowl. Add vanilla and cream and beat for 3 to 4 minutes. Fold in Snickers pieces.
Pour into the crumb-lined pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 to 25 minutes, or until cheesecake is almost set but the center still jiggles slightly. Let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate at least 4 to 5 hours before serving.
Makes 12 servings.
