When served cooled from the oven, it’s soft and creamy, but my preferred thanks to serve it's after you’ve chilled the cheesecake overnight, making it more of a replacement York Style cheesecake — my favorite.

The toppings on this cheesecake are completely optional, but they are doing add plenty of “Wow” factor, and make the whole baking process significantly less stressful by removing any worry of a cracked top.


your cheesecake may crack, but it’s okay because you'll douse it in caramel sauce and nuts and more Snickers and more caramel and more nuts and , you get the thought .

Low-stress cheesecake is where it’s at, people. You'll preach water baths all you would like , and that i am a believer of them, too, but sometimes you only don’t want the FUSS of all of that.

And who doesn’t love something covered in caramel? Dousing in caramel makes everything okay.


  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Half and Half
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • extra Mini Snickers for decorating Optional
  • 1/4 cup Salted Peanuts for decorating Optional
  • 24 Oreos regular "stuff", not Double Stuff
  • 5 tablespoons Butter melted
  • 32 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 20 Mini Snickers each one cut into 8 pieces (yes they will be tiny! Freezing first makes it super easy though! )
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a food processor, process the Oreos ( filling and all ) until they are completely crushed.
  3. Mix in the melted butter ( I do this in the food processor -- Just pour the butter in and process for a few more pulses until the butter is completely combined ).
  4. Press into a greased, 9” Spring Form pan with at least 3" high sides ( this is taller than standard!!!! )
  5. Bake for 8 minutes.
  6. In a heavy-duty mixer, mix cream cheese, white sugar, and sour cream until combined and smooth.
  7. Mix in the three eggs until just combined.
  8. Fold in the chopped up Mini Snickers.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn oven off. Let sit for two hours in the oven.
  10. To Make the Caramel Topping ( Optional ) : In a heavy-bottomed pan set to medium heat, whisk the brown sugar, half and half, and butter until the butter melts and the entire mixture starts to foam. Slowly whisk the mixture for 3 - 5 minutes, until it thickens slightly.
