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 🙂

    Oh my deliciousness. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, there are cheesecake cookies.

    Tried these yesterday…but I’m muffin-top-less ;O) SO, we used a mini muffin pan and a regular muffin pan and both turned out really well and taste amazing. But we had problems with the crust. It wouldn’t hold together, so we added a little more butter and that helped, but when we removed the cheesecakes, half of the crust was left in the pan. Regardless, these were amazing and I will absolutely make them again!!!

  3. brandy

    Oh wow these look great! I wonder how they’d taste with twix though cause sadly I’m not a snicker lover … lol

  4. Rhonda

    Okay, I guess I’m one of the many people who have gone and ordered a muffin top pan. 😉 This looks delicious. I’ve tried a few of your recipes and they never disappoint! ~Thanks so much.

  5. tif

    What do I do with the 2T sugar? In the photos, it looks like you put it in with the graham crackers, but it doesn’t mention it in the instructions. Can you clarify? Thanks – it looks delish!

    Was it you that posted the idea of baking your chocolate chip cookies in your muffin top pan? I also have a muffin top pan and thought that was just the best idea in the world. When I tried it though, I guess I pressed too much dough into each cup because it overflowed over the top and basically every cookie in the pan became connected. I guess I should barely fill each section with dough? I was so bummed but I’m still intrigued by the idea so I want to try again. Now you come out with these cheescake numbers and I’m tempted to try these with my muffin top pan! Holy cow they look awesome! Beautiful photos too. I love it when photos on a blog show the whole procession of recipe making. It really gives a person a good idea of what to expect and what things should look like. Hmmm? I oughta start doing that but I bet you are whipping out your camera alot while baking. That might get to be a pain in the butt. But anyway, good job! They look perfect!

    I think I’m going to have to stop reading your blog…I gain a few pounds each time I read a new post!! These look unnecessarily delicious…can’t wait to give them a try…AND I ♥ my muffin top pans too. The best thing I’ve bought so far this year!

  17. Naomiomi

    Thanks for sharing!

    I couldn’t take it anymore….this baby sealed the deal! I ordered one of those muffin top pans today and it will be here Saturday! I can not wait to try this recipe. And darn it now that I’ve looked at it AGAIN I realize I should have ordered TWO of those suckers! 🙁

    Thanks for another delicious creation!

  19. Natalie @ The City Sisters

    First the giant s’mores cookies and now this! Whoa, girl…you are making me fat…and happy! I made your s’mores cookies for our 4th of July family reunion. They were a huge hit!! I’ll have to try these next.

  20. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life

    I think I just gained 5 pounds by looking at these – ohh my gosh! Luckily I’ll work it off by how quickly I’m running to the store to finally buy one of those pans! 🙂

  21. Live.Love.Eat

    A cheesecake cookie? Whowuddathunkit? Very sweet as always. And muffin tops are in now. Muffin top pans that is. Looks wonderful. Hope you’re well!!!

  22. Margo

    These look scrumdidlyumptious for sure! And I just have to say that the fork with the twirled handle is really beautiful.
    Back to the cheesecakes, I wonder if these are like most cheesecakes and taste better after aging a day or so? I doubt we could leave them alone long enough to find out, unless I purposely hide one in the depths of the fridge.

  23. Natalie (The Sweets Life)

    once again you’ve outdone yourself! I REALLY need to get one of those pans 🙂

  24. Jennifer

    OMG they look so mouthwatering!!! Your pictures are amazing. Going to have to try this recipe out for sure!
