Snickers Caramel Cheesecake Cookies

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is enjoying summer. CA is always full of life in the summer, there’s always family visiting, beach trips and partying going on. I have a feeling it’s going to fly by and school will be back in session in no time. Better enjoy this while I can 🙂

Wait until you try these individual cheesecakes! I didn’t know what to call them because they look like my giant cookies, but are really little cheesecakes. Whatever you want to call them, they are ridiculously incredible! Yes, break out your muffin top pan people, cheesecake works perfect in it. If you haven’t found your muffin top pan yet, you can try this in a mini cheesecake pan or even some mini muffin tins but make sure you spray your mini muffin tins well. It might be tricky to remove your cakes.

We made this recipe while my family was visiting this week and let’s just say they didn’t last long. The best part about this recipe, is you don’t have to wait the traditional hour for cheesecake to bake. These are done in under 30 minutes! Love it 🙂

Take a peek…hope you enjoy!

Here’s your line up, pretty easy right?! Seriously if you don’t have the muffin top pan yet, it’s a must, here’s the EXACT one I use HERE!!

Ahhh, I think this will be my new computer wallpaper 🙂

Whip up the cheesecake batter…

Feel free to use any caramel sauce you’d like. Make your own, melt down some Kraft Caramels….anything will work 🙂

Graham cracker crust….YUM!

I have officially fallen in love with my muffin top pan! It’s options are endless, stay tuned for more fun ideas with it 🙂

Told you these were ridiculous 🙂

  • 2 Cups  chopped Snickers Bars

  • 3 Tablespoons caramel sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place chopped Snickers Bars into a bowl, set aside for now. 
  • Place graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter into a mixing bowl to combine. 
  • Spoon a couple spoonfuls of crumbs into each muffin top pan and press down and up the sides. 
  • Bake for 5-6 minutes or just until browned. Remove from oven.
  • In a stand or electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. 
  • Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula.

    Hi- is it possible to freeze these? If not, how many days are they good in the fridge for? Thanks!

  2. Angie

    I made these and had well over enough to make a dozen and a half. Not sure where your measurements come from, and I don’t think 5 tlbs of butter was enough to make the graham cracker moist enough to stick together.

  3. Estelle

    Just a warning. I don’t think the crust measurements are correct. Could it possibly be 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs? I tried these in my muffin top pan, which I use often with great success. I should have trusted my instincts, which told me that the proportion of crumbs to butter was much too high. I made them as directed, however, and there was way too much crust, and even though I used less of it, it did not hold together at all. It remained crumbs even after baking. So, although I think the final product tastes good, it is a complete disaster in terms of being able to serve it. Also, because I tried to use the whole 1/4 cup of cheesecake, the cheesecake overflowed the pan. So, I may crumble up the remains and serve it over ice cream….

    These should be illegal…. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that looks so good!!! Can’t wait to try these… Gotta get a muffin top pan (which I didn’t even know existed)….

  5. Lauren

    I now have a new religion and it’s called Snickers Carmel Cheesecake Cookies, Good Lord ! these look sinful I must make these like yesterday!!! I am going to make these for my parents who share the same birthday which is February 4th, my Mom turns 75 and my Dad turns 79 I have a feeling they will go Banannas !! if they don’t I will be glad to eat theirs…

  6. Cndy Hunnicutt

    I wonder if you could make this in an 8×8 pan, like a bar cookie? It’s not so much that I don’t want to spend the $$ on the muffin top pans, but the fact that I have no storage room in the kitchen

  7. Selma

    It looks sooo delicious….i am from germany can someone please tell me how many bars(or gram) 2 cups snickers are

  8. chelsea

    Hi i was just wondering would i be okay if i just used a regular muffin pan and just not fill then all the way?

  9. Vicki

    I just absolutely love your site Thank you for sharing it with me! Your recipes are all just wonderful!

  10. Connie

    I made these today and let me tell you the are fabulous!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!! I thought they were really easy to make and taste out of this world!!

  11. Connie

    I am trying these today to take to a bonfire. I bought my pan at Micheal’s today with a coupon, made it around 7 dollars for the pan. Wish me luck 🙂

  12. Marissa

    These look incredible!! I want to send some as a gift, but do you think with them being cheesecakes that they would not ship well? Should they be refrigerated? Thanks!

  13. Annoula

    I made these a few times, but with whoopie pie pans (they’re a bit smaller, 12 in each pan) and they’re awesome! Then I started playing around with different toppings, and they’re really good with a cinnamon/brown sugar/butter mixture swirled in like a cinnamon bun. I’m about to go make these again! Thanks for the great recipe!

  14. Joan Hayes@chocolate and more

    I’m so glad I found these on Pinterest. I’ve got to do a cheesecake challenge and I just prefer recipes that are individual servings. And with snicker’s bars in them, oh yes! I’ll be using a muffin tin since I don’t have the muffin top pan but I know it’ll still be delicious, thanks for sharing and I’ll let you know when the challenge goes live!

  15. sharla

    I really want to try these, but I don’t have a muffin pan and can’t afford to buy one right now. Could I make these in a muffin pan just in the bottom? Never seen a muffin pan in perswon; is there any other pan I could improvise? Thanks

  16. jocelyn Silverman

    wow! these look absolutely incredible. i was just wondering since they are baked, is it ok to leave them out? my daughter’s school asks the parents to bake for the teachers every now and again- but was worried about the cream cheese-

    thank you.

  17. Megan

    OMGeeeeeeeeeeeeee I am sooo glad I found you….but in the same way Im not:) These look to die for!!!! Going to buy a muffin tin! is there something I could use if I just HAVE to make them tonight:)

  18. Charl'e

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I made them last night, they were so easy and so yummy. I took them to work and shared them, they got rave reviews. I will be making them alot.

  19. Charl'e

    You should get something for all the people you are getting to buy these muffin top pans. I have seen all kinds of yummy things on pintrest but this is going to be my first one to try, it just looks so good and easy to make. Now I just got to get one of those pans for myself. 🙂

  20. Kim

    I found this recipe on Pinterest, and when I saw that it was the same place where I got the oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies (which I made a few months ago) I had to try these! They were amazing, and my husband declared them his new favorite. Thanks!

  21. Connie

    We had ONE trick-or-treater tonight so I’m swamped with Peanut Butter Snickers…I may just use them in this recipe. Thanks!

  22. Sarah

    I just made these for my company tonight. I did not have a muffin top pan, so I put them into a regular muffin tin pan with cupcake papers. They tasted good but did not look nearly as delightful. They were really hard to get out since the caramel from the snickers melted onto the pan and stuck. I will have to get a muffin top pan to make these again. Thanks for the recipe.

  23. La Petite Gigi

    Why is this happening to me? These cookies look like heaven on earth!!! Omg, my mouth is watering and I can’t wait to get off work to race home and make these suckers. TO DIE FOR!
