Candy Bar Cheese Cake

READY IN: 4hrs 50mins
Recipe by Sunny Gates

I love this cheese cake because the crust is different, and it is rich. It has some of my favorite candies in it. It was entered by a grandmother and her grand daughter to a magazine recipe contest and won! If you buy the bite sized candy bars you will save some time when it comes to chopping.

This was EXCELLENT! I did have to cook a little longer, about 45 minutes. Also I don't own a tart pan so I used my regular cheesecake pan. Next time I may double the recipe and make it thicker. I probably wont need to completely double the candy, though as there was definitely plenty! Thanks for the great recipe. I will definitely make again!
