Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars will make you pretty popular at your next party! The base is a delicious chocolate chip cookie dough. Then, it gets topped with a rich cheesecake batter that doesn’t even crack! You can easily make this part ahead of time and even freeze it at this point.
To decorate each slice you need some chopped Snickers candies, melted chocolate, caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream. I whipped out my cream maker for this treat. It makes your whipped cream look and taste just like the kind you get at the Cheesecake Factory. You can check out some whipped cream machines here.
