Snickers cheesecake

April 20, 2012

Sorry guys, I’ve been a really bad blogger lately, but I have a really good reason for that. I got a job! So yes, we are staying in Ireland for longer!
The new job is really nice, with nice people, who like to eat cookies I bake. Yes, I tried to bribe then on my first day with home-baked cookies and well I think it worked ;)
Anyway I would love to promise you I will be here more often, but next week we are going to Poland for TJ’s brother wedding and little holidays, so it may be hard to be a good blogger. So please forgive me. I will be back. I promise.
It is about time to post a recipe for Snickers Cheesecake that you saw at my Easter table. It is sinful recipe, your boyfriends, husbands, brothers will love it.

Snickers cheesecake

Snickers Cheesecakerecipe from a blog Moje wypieki

  • 750 g curd cheese (twarog)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 Tbsp potato starch
  • 1 Tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Snickers (medium size, 40 g each, sliced),

For decoration:

  • dulce de leche
  • Snickers, sliced
  • melted chocolate or peanuts (optionally)
Grind the curd cheese at least twice. You can buy ground cheese sometimes in Polish shops, but very often they don’t taste as nice as the real one. More about curd cheese (twarog) you can read here. You can also try to substitute it with ricotta.
In a bowl beat egg yolks with icing sugar till creamy and white. Add potato starch, plain flour, vanilla extract and curd cheese.
In a separate bowl whip egg whites until soft peaks.
Stir it gently into the cheesecake mixture. At the end add sliced Snickers and stir gently.
Grease a 23-cm spring form and line it with baking paper. Place the cheesecake mixture in the pan and smooth down.
Bake at 180ºC/160ºC fan for about 60 minutes. Cool down with a slightly ajar oven and place in a fridge for a few hours or over the night.
Decorate it with dulce de leche, Snickers and optionally peanuts and melted chocolate.

    Congrats on your new job, Magda. I’m so glad you are staying. I would miss my blogging buddy if you went. That cheesecake looks fantastic and very naughty indeed.

      Thank you Amee, you know I wouldn’t disappear from Internet, don’t you?
      I hope we will meet soon, although I will miss two bloggers meeting in May, but maybe something else will pop up.

      Dziękuję Beo. Wiem, wiem, już na rozmowie się mnie pytali o moje ciasta i to był dobry znak ;) Tylko drugiego dnia się pytali czemu już nie ma ciastek ;)

    Congrats on the job, Magda! I’m not really a cheesecake fan, but I do love Snickers so I’d make an exception for this one. Glad you’ll be staying with us a little longer! x

    • Reply Magda April 21, 2012 at 21:17

      Thank you Kristin. Ha ha, I love cheesecakes, they seem to be less sinful than other cakes as they are almost all diary! But I’m happy that I found a way to convince you into trying one ;)
      And I hope I will stay quite long, maybe even forever ;)

    Oh good god! I’m slobbering here!

    • Reply Magda April 21, 2012 at 21:18

      That was the purpose of it ;) But it will be better for you Amrita if you go and bake this cheesecake :)

    “It is sinful recipe, your boyfriends, husbands, brothers will love it.”

    What about the girlfriends, wives, and sisters? Are we to assume only heterosexual, females bake?

    • Reply Magda April 21, 2012 at 21:21

      Oh Anonymous it’s only my twisted heterosexual way of writing comes into action here. Of course anybody can bake it. My lesbian friends loved it as well as my heterosexual females, so that recipe is perfect for everybody :)

    Magda, this looks absolutely DEADLY! (in a good way)……+ since we all love a Snicker bar, I must make it. Thanks for sharing looks gorgeous. Safe + fun travels. Imen xx

    • Reply Magda April 22, 2012 at 17:21

      Thank you Imen. Snickers bars are delicious, especially when you walking a lot like in mountains. Although it is also perfect even when you haven’t walked at all ;)

    Wow, quite a recipe, and yet, it seems so manageable, not like the other intimidating cheesecake recipes I know. I will surely be testing it, Magda. Thanks for the recipe and congratulations on the job. Don’t feel bad that you’re not posting as much as you used to. This will even itself out over the time, in the meantime, enjoy your vacations.

      Thank you Gosia. Yes, this cheesecake is really easy, so I hope you will try it :)
