Snickers Cheesecake

 A favorite birthday request in our house. I love cheesecake. With the exception of the long baking time, it's fast and easy to prepare.

2 cups oreo crumbs (or graham wafer crumbs)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 bricks cream cheese
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup whipping cream
6 snickers bars, chopped up
4 ounces semi sweet chocolate
1/2 cup whipping cream

Mix oreo crumbs, 1/2 cup butter, and 1/4 cup sugar together. Press into a spring form pan and chill.
Beat together the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Add vanilla, eggs, and 2/3 cup whipping cream. Beat until smooth.
Spread 1/2 of the chopped up snickers bars (3) onto the chilled crust. Pour cream cheese mixture on top, and add the rest of the chopped up snickers bars on top. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes at 325. It will look a bit jiggly in the middle still.
Let it cool a bit. Melt the chocolate and 1/2 cup whipping cream in the microwave and pour over the cheese cake. Let cool completely and remove spring form sides
