Twix Cheesecake Pie

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 min + chill time

Cook Time: 35 min

My son (RecipeBoy) won a blue ribbon in our community's pie contest with this pie recipe. It's decadent and delicious (and easy enough for a 9 year old to make all by himself!)

Ingredients:

CRUST:
20 Oreo cookies (with creme filling)
3 Tablespoons melted butter

FILLING:
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)

TOPPING:
chocolate syrup
caramel syrup
6 chopped Twix "Fun Size" Candy Bars

Directions:

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.

Tips:

*Twix bars are a shortbread and caramel cookie candy bar covered in chocolate. They're sold in the USA.
*This is a great recipe to use up a zillion Twix bars that your kids will come home with on Halloween night.

    As you see in the photo- it needs to cover the bottom of the dish and up the sides.

    I have made this twice now and all everyone says is “It is so AWESOME!”. I also showed a photo of it to the San Diego Cake Club, of which I am a member, and they put it in their monthly Newsletter along with this link. One woman was so thrilled to get it and was so interested.
    My college aged grandson favorite ‘guilty pleasure” is Twix. When I made it for him for his 22nd birthday, he was so thrilled! Posted our photos on his Facebook page and everyone is so jealous, so I have to make some more for him and his friends. Oh well, … a grandma has to do what she loves to do, feed her grandchildren with delicious foods, and this one was delicious, at least from the inch I stole while preparing it. Just don’t tell my grandson. I will have to make him another!. Thanks for posting. I pinned it also.
