Twix-Filled Cheesecake Bars

Happy little pieces of Twix candies are mixed into a rich cheesecake bar with Oreo crust.

Ingredients

  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 4 single Twix bars, chopped

Steps

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9 x 9-inch square cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, pulse Oreos to a medium-fine consistency. Transfer to a bowl and add butter. Stir to combine. Press the crumble mixture into the base of the cake pan and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla bean. Beat to a creamy consistency. Fold in Twix. Pour over the baked cookie crust. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until center just jiggles. Cool and chill for 1 hour before slicing into square bites.
