Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST

  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 18 graham cracker sheets)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted brown butter (you’ll need 1 cup (8 ounces) to start with)

FOR THE FILLING

  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 16 Snickers Minis cut or diced into bite-sized slices or pieces

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter
  • 4 teaspoons light corn syrup

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 F
  • Brown the butter. If you don't know how to brown butter, you'll find printable directions HERE.

FOR THE CRUST:

  • Stir the graham crackers, browned butter, and sugar together in a bowl. Press into a 9x13 pan lined with nonstick foil or parchment paper. Bake for 8 minutes and then cool while you make the filling.

FOR THE CHEESECAKE FILLING:

  • Beat cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and flour together with a hand or stand mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir in your candy pieces and spread the mixture over your cooled crust.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake has set up. Let cool completely.

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • Melt the chocolate and butter together over a double boiler, or carefully in the microwave. Stir until smooth, then stir in the corn syrup. Spread the glaze over the bars using a silicone spatula or offset frosting spatula. Chill for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight.
  • Cut the dessert into slices with a sharp knife, then drizzle each bar with additional melted chocolate and top with a piece of Snickers, if desired.
