These Snickers Cheesecake Brownies have 3 layers to them: brownies, cheesecake, and Snickers! They’re easy to make and they’re always a crowd-pleaser!
Snickers, cheesecake, and brownies…can a dessert get any better than that?! I enjoy making treats for others, it truly brings me joy. Luckily, I stashed one cheesecake brownie aside for myself and I am so relieved that I did! They were super yummy and almost reminiscent of the Snickers cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. This is definitely my favorite brownie mix redux to date.

Snickers Cheesecake Brownies
- 18 oz box brownie mix plus ingredients for the brownies
- 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
- ⅔ cup powdered sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 8 fun-size Snickers cut into small pieces
MAKE THE BROWNIES:
- Move the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 400°. Line an 8 x 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on all sides, and spray the foil lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
- Mix the brownie mix as per the box instructions.
- Pour batter into prepared pan and bake the brownies according to box directions. Once the brownies are done baking, move them to a wire rack while you prepare the cheesecake layer. Keep the oven on.
MAKE THE CHEESECAKE LAYER:
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a medium bowl with a hand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.
- Pour the cheesecake batter on top of the baked brownies, and then bake for 26-28 minutes, or until the cheesecake layer is golden on top and set. Move the brownies to a wire rack to cool until just warm.
- Press the cut-up Snickers into the cheesecake layer. Then, cover the brownies with foil and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
- Use the foil overhang to remove the cheesecake brownies from the pan. Peel the foil down from the sides of the brownies and cut the brownies into 9-12 squares. Serve.
