Twix Cheesecake


20 Oreo cookies (with creme filling)
3 Tablespoons melted butter
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
16 chopped Twix "Fun Size" Candy Bars (2 cups total)
chocolate syrup
caramel syrup
6 chopped Twix "Fun Size" Candy Bars


1. Prepare the crust: Crush Oreos (either in a plastic bag or in a food processor) and mix with melted butter. Use your fingers to press into a 9-inch pie dish; place into the freezer for about 30 minutes, or until firm.
2. Prepare the filling: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. With an electric mixer in a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar and eggs until mixture is smooth. Stir in chopped Twix bars. Pour into frozen pie crust. Bake until set, 35 to 45 minutes; let cool.
3. When pie is completely cooled, drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrup and garnish with more chopped Twix bars. Chill until firm.


*Twix bars are a shortbread and caramel cookie candy bar covered in chocolate. They're sold in the USA.
