Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

This was very tasty and much simpler then making a cheesecake in a spring form pan. I think I could have probably baked mine about 5 minutes longer though. One thing that I found helpful was to freeze the Snickers bars for about 20 minutes before chopping...this hardens the caramel so that the candy bits don't stick together as you chop them. I will definitely be making this again; especially when I have to bring a dessert to potlucks or other events. Thanks Made for Aus/NZ Swap #20 (sorry I know I am probably driving you all crazy but I need to edit this and up the stars to 5) This dessert is definitely much better if you refrigerate it! It was still a bit warm when I had originally served it...but DH and I sneaked a bite after it had been refrigerated several hours and he has already placed his order for his birthday in Jan. Yummy!!!
