Twix Cheesecake

My daughters primary teachers at our church were out of town for a couple weeks.  She really missed them because they are amazing teachers and friends.  So, she asked if we could make them a treat to take over to them.  When I asked her what she was thinking, she suggested a cake.  As we got to talking, we decided on a cheesecake and she decided to add some Twix candy bars to it.  Such a great idea.  It smelled and looked so yummy.  So yummy that we have plans to make one for all of us to enjoy here at home!

Twix Cheesecake
20 Oreo cookies {with creme filling}
3 tablespoons melted butter
Two {8 oz.} packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
18-20 chopped Twix Fun Size Candy Bars {2 cups total)}
hot fudge
caramel syrup
6-8 chopped Twix Fun Size Candy Bars

To prepare the crust: Crush cookies (either in a sealed plastic bag, blender, or food processor) and mix with melted butter. Use your fingers to press into a lightly greased 9-inch pie dish or 8x8 baking dish. Place crust into the freezer for about 20 minutes, or until it is firm.

To prepare the filling: 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 at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes, or until set in center; let cool.  When cheesecake is completely cooled, drizzle with hot fudge and caramel syrup.  Garnish with more chopped Twix bars. Chill until serving.
