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 🙂
Snickers Caramel Cheesecake Cookies
- 2 Cups chopped Snickers Bars
- 2 1/2 Cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 5 Tablespoons melted butter
- 16 Ounces softened cream cheese (I used 2 8-oz packages)
- 1 Cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
- 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.
- Beat in caramel sauce until well combined.
- Pour about 1/4 Cup of cheesecake mixture over each baked crust then top evenly with chopped Snickers.
- Bake for 23-26 minutes or until cheescake edges are just starting to brown and centers are nearly set.
- Remove and let cool completely.
- While still warm, loosen all edges with a plastic knife to make for easier removal from pan.
- Refrigerate once cooled then top with caramel sauce and whipped cream to serve!
Have a great rest of your week and weekend, come back soon! More Muffin Top Pan Recipes to come 🙂
I made these for my monthly cooking club with a few minor alterations. I do not like peanuts so I substituted Rollos candy and pecans. My muffin top pan did not come in time so I made them in cupcake papers. They were HUGE hit!!!So very yummy!
I want to make your Snickers Cheesecake Caramel Cookies in my mini-muffin tins. How long do you think I should bake them for? They hold less than 1/4 cup of liquid. THANKS!
I would be careful using a mini muffin tin, it might be tricky getting them out once they are cooled. I would use a mini cheesecake pan with a removable bottom so you can remove them nicely 🙂 I would check them after 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Love at first sight! What a delightful idea! I love your photos, your recipes and your spunk! Thanks for sharing your passion of food with the world.
Oh my gosh, a cheesecake cookie?! You’re brilliant!
All I can say is wow!!! Great idea about the muffin top pan! I’ll be purchasing one this weekend 🙂 Can’t wait for more fun ideas from you!
Oh my goodness! That looks sooo good. That shot of them all stacked up looks just like my morning breakfast of pancakes, and that’s soo wrong!! Now I’m going to want these for breakfast!!
Um, those look great! If it wouldn’t wake my kids up, I’d go bake those right now. Well, that and if I had all the ingredients. 😉 And I think a muffin top pan may need to be on my Christmas wish list now…
Oh my goodness! Cheesecake cookies?!? FABULOUS!
Oh heavens, pass some over here! Now I have to go and make some of these, they look incredible!
Ahhh! These look so good! I’m going to make them for a cookie contest with some friend.. I’m sure these will be a winner! Thanks for sharing!
I just made these and they are fantastic. The first batch wasn’t too pretty, but non stick spray helped the rest of the time. I don’t know how it happened but this recipe made 24. I was expecting 12. I have the same sized muffin top pan though (which I bought specifically for this recipe). I am glad to have 24 instead of 12, but it did take a lot longer because I only have one pan. Great recipe!
Yum! That looks amazing! Thanks Stumbeupon for bringing me to your site!
looks absolutely divine!! quick question though, can you make them without the muffin top pan? I am eventually going to buy one but I want to make these NOW! 🙂
RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS!!! 🙂
Also how many grams of snickers did u use?
I was thinking of using a regular springform pan.. what size do u recommend? 8 inch.?
Whaaaaa! How did I not see this before? Awesome, awesome, awesome recipe. Chapeau!
a combination of all my favorite things!
well, I finally got my pans. Mine are not like yours: my pans have a bit of a well in them. Yours have the straight sides and mine do not. SO, mine are not straight and uniform and “pretty” like yours, but my cookies ARE tasty!
thank you SO much for all of the XL muffin top cookies!! I look forward to more! 🙂
Sooo good! Made them early for bachelorette night but couldn’t wait and ate some early. So worth it 🙂
I have had a muffin top pan for some time and found it basicly useless…..until my dear friend sent me this recipe…I will be hanging on to this site for more yummy ideas.
YUM!! I never would have thought to do something like this with the muffin top pan! Brilliant.
Absolutely Genius! I guess I need to dig up my muffin top pan.
Wow, now a muffin top pan actually seems useful. Thanks Jenny! Also, your idea gave me an idea. Do you think muffin top pans would work for small fruit pies? That is, could you mold the crust around the bottom of the pan then lift it out and have individual pies?
These look amazing! I would love to make them but do not have a muffin top pan. Is there something I could do instead?
Oh my, these sound and look so good. Going to make them this weekend and surprise the wife.
OMG. I want. I need. Those look fantastic.
INSANE! (Insanely fabulous, that is!)
You and your desserts…I swear, they make me drool each and every time! This one would hit the jackpot in my house…that is, if I would let anyone else eat this. I would probably be selfish and eat the whole thing!
Oh. My. Gawd. This just looks unbelievably yummy! So original!!!
HOLY MACKERAL !!!…unbelievable. i might have to make these just to find out if they’re real…then hire a personal trainer
Oh, these cookies look ridiculously good!! I bet these would taste even better with homemade caramel sauce. I MUST make these! Thank you for sharing this recipe and AMAZING photos!! Goodness!
These are insane! Snickers and cheesecake – as with everything you make, just utterly genius! I can’t wait to make these and I NEED that muffin top pan! I love all the large cookies you make in it!
Holy amazingness batman! These are the most decadent cookies I have ever seen – I bet they’re so good they’re illegal in some countries.
CRAZY GOOD! I can’t wait to try this – now I feel like I need a muffin top pan though, so for that, my kitchen cabinets do not thank you 😉
