No Bake Snickers Cheesecake Is Perfect for Patio Season

With Snickers being one of the top selling chocolate bars in the world, it is no surprise that it is a top favorite in my household. Going through the grocery aisle, I often find myself reaching into the candy display and grabbing a bar or two for the ride home.

The combination of caramel, nugget, chocolate and peanuts satisfies every last sweet tooth I have. Shopping with the kids means I'm picking up 4 of the buggers at the cash every where I go. The kids come by the craving honestly.

Being big on sweets we love an after dinner dessert in our house. During the summer we love eating outside and there's nothing worse than baking in the summer time southern heat. As much as I can I try to make frozen or no bake options for our after dinner treats. No bake cheesecakes are one of our favorites.

You can imagine the look on my face when a Snickers cheesecake became a thing. An even bigger smile came on my face when I also discovered I didn't have to bake this! HELLO SUMMERTIME FAVORITE! This is the perfect excuse for me to stock up!

The combination of cream cheese, chocolate and crunchy snickers bites makes for the ultimate post dinner outdoor treat! No bake and easy to make, this is a must for all the Snickers lovers on this earth!
