Combining chocolate bar favourites into desserts is super fun. You combine all the flavours of your chosen chocolate bar in an easy dessert. This no-bake cheesecake is a recipe update from September 2015, and I’ve wanted to make that cheesecake recipe again and share it once more!

With the original recipe, I used an Oreo cookie base, but this time I’m sticking to the classic digestive biscuit base. If making an Oreo/chocolate sandwich biscuit/cookie base, use the same quantity of biscuit/cookie, but reduce the butter to 75g.

The WJBN blog has a vast range of cheesecakes, some plain like my Best No-Bake Cheesecake, the most viewed/viral recipe: Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecake, and even a few vegan cheesecakes, including this Vegan Biscoff Cheesecake!

It’s safe to say my “Recipes” page has a whole load of cheesecakes just waiting for you…

This cheesecake has a buttery biscuit base, atop the base is a creamy salted caramel cheesecake, full of chopped Snickers bar. Then the cheesecake once set is drizzled with extra caramel, and the edges are decorated with chopped peanuts and even more Snickers!

For something different, you could swap the caramel for the same amount of crunchy or smooth peanut butter for the cheesecake filling. Next time I plan to do that!

Ingredients

Biscuit Base:

  • 300 g digestive biscuits (chocolate or plain) or 300g Oreo cookies (reduce butter to 75g)
  • 140 g butter (salted or unsalted) melted

Caramel Cheesecake:

  • 600 g full-fat cream cheese I leave mine out at room temperature for approx. 30 minutes to soften slightly
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 300 ml double cream chilled
  • 200 g caramel/dulce de leche I use Carnation caramel
  • 4 x 41.7 g Snickers bars chopped into small pieces

Decoration:

  • 200 g caramel/dulce de leche
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Extra Snickers bars chopped

Instructions

  • To make the biscuit base: Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter until moistened. Press the biscuit crumbs into a 23cm springform tin until compact. Put to one side while you make the cheesecake filling.
  • To make the cheesecake filling: In a large mixing bowl whisk the cream cheese, icing sugar and the cream until thickened. Now mix in the caramel/dulce de leche and a generous pinch of flaky sea salt (optional) - don't over mix. Fold through the chopped Snickers.
  • Spread the cheesecake filling on top of the biscuit base you prepared earlier and smooth the top with either the back of a spoon, a spatula or a palette knife. Cover the cheesecake and leave it to set in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight. 
  • When ready to serve, remove the cheesecake from the springform tin and decorate as desired. I piped over the remaining half of the tin of caramel and sprinkled over chopped peanuts. Then I decorated the edge of the cheesecake with even more chopped Snickers.
  • The cheesecake will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  1. Wow, this cheesecake looks incredible! The caramel drizzle on top is making my mouth water. This looks like something you’d find at the Cheesecake Factory…only better!

  2. Would it be bad to hoard an entire cheesecake for yourself so nobody else could get any? Because I kind of want to make this and then just eat it all myself. It looks fantastic! 😀

  3. Oh my goodness!!!!
    I love snickers bars.
    This pud looks like it could be my new fav!!!
    Pinning 🙂

  4. Oh man, this looks SO good. I also love Snickers bars, and the thought of a cheesecake studded with bits of Snickers sounds absolutely heavenly. I can see why you were eating the cheesecake filling right out of the bowl!

  5. This cheesecake looks so delicious – my husbands’ favorite dessert is cheesecake, my favorite candy is Snickers, clearly a dessert meant for the both of us 🙂

  6. Going to make this this weekend. Where do I find ‘caramel’? Do the usual supermarkets sell and if so, where abouts? I’ve seen caramel sauce and caramel flavouring but that’s it.
    Thank you,

  7. This looks insanely good. Other half is addicted to snickers so I think I might suggest he makes this for us this weekend. Luuuuuuush!

  8. Hi Jess! Absolutely looooove your recipes, and so does my husband. I’ve tried this one and the oreo cheesecake, the butter for the base here is 75g and the other one is 140g, which one would you recommend as its the same amount of biscuits :).

    1. Hi Debra – apologies for the late response, I’ve been away on holiday and have just returned to work. I’ve just realised there’s an error on the Oreo cheesecake recipe, I’ll update the Oreo cheesecake recipe to mention that if you’re using Oreos instead of digestive biscuits for the base, that you’ll need to use slightly less butter (only 75g instead of 140g). If you use too much butter, the base might be too hard. I hope that answers your query and I’m also really glad that you and your husband are enjoying my recipes. 🙂
