KETO SNICKERS CHEESECAKE

Advertisements
keto snickers cheesecake, Taking inspiration from the candy, this recipe includes a peanut butter cheesecake that sits on a double chocolate chip cookie crust. I topped it with my recipe for Keto Browned Butter Salted Caramel, a chocolate drizzle, and chopped roasted & salted peanuts.
Today is not a day for restraint, or dieting, or even my usual “as natural as possible” food. Today, we’re making one of my favorite versions of my absolute favorite indulgence : cheesecake. And not just any cheesecake: a Snickers Cheesecake.
When served cooled from the oven, it’s soft and creamy, but my preferred way to serve it is after you’ve chilled the cheesecake overnight, making it more of a New York Style cheesecake — my favoritttttte.
The toppings on this cheesecake are completely optional, but they do add a ton of “Wow” factor, AND make the entire baking process significantly less stressful by removing any worry of a cracked top.
By the way, a springform pan is pretty much necessary when making this decadent candy bar cheesecake. Here is my favorite one – it’s a great price, and has been a workhorse in my kitchen for almost a decade. If you decide to buy, I make a tiny commission that helps me keep the lights on ( at no extra cost to you! ):

4.  As the crust is cooling, make up the caramel sauce.  Add the butter for the caramel sauce to small sauce pan.  Cook over medium heat until golden and just boiling.  Add sweetener to the pan, turn heat down to low and simmer for 1 minute.  Add pinch of salt, vanilla extract and heavy whipping cream and stir well.  Set aside to cool and thicken, about 1 hour.  If it separates, just mix it until combined again.

5.  Add filling cream cheese, vanilla extract and sweetener to a large bowl and whip with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Add in cream and whip until hard peaks form.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

6.  Fill the cooled crust with the filling mixture.

7.  Microwave chocolate chips, sweetener and coconut oil in 30 second increments until melted and combined, about 90 seconds.  Allow to cool for a few minutes.

8.  Drizzle half of the caramel sauce onto the top of the pie.  Drizzle half of the chocolate sauce over the pie.  Sprinkle with peanuts and repeat until you have used up all the sauce.

9.  Refrigerate or freeze until serving, and store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer.
