Snickers cheesecake

For a dessert that's oozing with chocolatey goodness you can't go past this decadent Snickers cheesecake.
  • 250g Arnott’s Choc Ripple biscuits
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons gelatine powder
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water
  • 500g cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 300g sour cream
  • 200g dark chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
  • 2 x 50g Mars Snickers bars, finely chopped
  • 380g can Nestlé Top ’n’ Fill Caramel
  • 1/4 cup (35g) salted roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • Chopped Mars Snickers bars, extra, to decorate
  1. Grease and line the base and side of a 20cm (base measurement) springform pan.
  2. Process biscuits in a food processor until finely crushed. Add the butter and process until well combined. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Use a straight-sided glass to spread and press mixture over the base and side. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
  3. Place gelatine and water in a heatproof glass. Stir until gelatine completely dissolves. Process cream cheese and sour cream in a food processor until smooth. Add the chocolate and brown sugar and process until well combined. Add the gelatine mixture and process until smooth.
  4. Spoon one-third of cream cheese mixture into base. Sprinkle with one-third of Snickers bar and dollop with one-third of caramel. Use a skewer to marble. Top with half the remaining cream cheese mixture, remaining Snickers bar and caramel in 2 more batches. Place in fridge for 6 hours or until set.
  5. Meanwhile, line a baking tray with baking paper. Scatter peanuts over tray. Place caster sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until sugar melts and caramelises. Carefully pour hot caramel over peanuts. Set aside until set. Coarsely chop.
  6. Place the cheesecake on a serving plate. Sprinkle with peanut praline and extra Snickers bar. Cut into wedges to serve.
