Buttery Oreo cookie base topped with a creamy caramel mousse filling studded with Snickers candies. A decadent and delicious no-bake cheesecake!
Today I’m sharing a new favourite cheesecake recipe. You guys know how much I love my cheesecake recipes, right? I have so many on this blog but there is always room for more.
So when I don’t have much time on hand to cook or don’t feel like baking I always stick to my trusty no-bake recipes. No-bake cheesecake is always at the top of my list. And seeing as Snickers are one of my favourite chocolate bars I thought I would add them to my next cheesecake mix.
This is the bit where I do my best to describe the cheesecake to you. This tasty dessert starts with a buttery chocolate Oreo base. If you love Oreos as much as I do then this is certainly the dessert for you to try. I really love how the chocolatey cookies compliment the sweet caramel filling. You might even remember my last post for Oreo fudge? (So good! You guessed it. Another recipe you have to make soon!)
Then I topped the chilled base with a smooth and creamy layer of caramel cheesecake. The filling is speckled with chopped Snickers, so you get a crunchy mix of sweet and salty flavour in each mouthful! Then all that is left to do is spread the cheesecake filling over the prepared base. Trying your best not to eat it straight from the bowl…
I prefer to leave it to set overnight for best results. The whole recipe is a complete breeze to make!
Just a word of warning: this caramel cheesecake mix is extremely addictive. So much so, me and the taste testers were eating it straight from the mixing bowl! I’ve tested out this caramel cheesecake and I have to say it is amazing. There is just the perfect balance of creaminess and caramel flavour and it is incredibly mousse like.
Once your patience has been well and truly tested, you can unravel this gorgeous delight. If I’m serving this for a dinner party I like to decorate with whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel and extra chopped Snickers or roasted peanuts.
140g (5 ounces) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
300g/approx. 27 Oreos or other chocolate sandwich cookie
500g (18 ounces) cream cheese, softened
250g (8.8 ounces) caramel or dulce de leche
300ml / ½ pint double cream, chilled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
85g (3/4 cup) icing sugar
4-5 Snickers bars, chopped (approx. 1 cup chopped)
Whipped cream, caramel, Snickers candies
- Prepare the cookie base: Break the Oreos into small pieces. Place in a food processor and blitz until fine crumbs. Or place in a ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin. Mix the cookie crumbs together with the melted butter. Press into a 23cm springform cheesecake tin or deep pie dish until firm. Chill in the refrigerator.
- To make cheesecake filling: In a large mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese with the caramel until smooth. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the cream, vanilla and sugar until soft-stiff peaks form. Add the whipped cream in two batches and fold to combine.
- Finish by folding through the chopped Snickers. Now spread over the prepared cookie base. Smooth over with a spatula or palette knife. Cover and leave in the refrigerator overnight to ensure it sets properly.
- To serve, drizzle with caramel and extra chopped snickers or roasted peanuts.
