Snickers Cheesecake

 

Snickers Cheesecake

This was another little invention of mine when I went through my "cheesecake phase." Words can't describe how amazing this is. If you are feeling extra amazing, use my hot fudge and butterscotch sauce recipes instead of the bottled versions. Either way? You won't be disappointed! Make this the day before you need it, as it takes several hours to cool. Snickers cheesecake just taste good!
