Instructions

  1. Prepare the Pan:
    • Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and grease with baking spray. Wrap the pan in two layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil to prevent uneven rising and burning on the edges.
  2. Brownie Bottom:
    • Mix brownie mix, 1 egg, and ½ cup melted butter in a large bowl. The mixture should be thick; add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed. Press evenly into the bottom of the pan and refrigerate.
  3. Peanut Butter Cheesecake:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Beat cream cheese with sugar and vanilla until smooth.
    • Mix in sour cream, peanut butter, and cornstarch.
    • Gently blend in eggs. Fold in chopped Snickers.
    • Spread over the brownie layer and smooth the top. Place in the oven with a pot of water underneath to provide moisture.
    • Bake for 1 hour and 20-30 minutes until set. If the top browns too much, cover with foil. Turn off the oven, open the door slightly, and let the cheesecake cool for an hour. Then, cool to room temperature and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  4. Caramel Peanut Layer:
    • Melt caramel candies with evaporated milk over low heat, stirring until smooth. Mix in peanuts and spread over the cooled cheesecake. Refrigerate to firm.
  5. Milk Chocolate Ganache:
    • Melt chocolate with ½ cup of cream over low heat until smooth. Stir in the remaining cold cream to thicken. Spread half over the cheesecake and freeze for 5-10 minutes. Reheat the remaining ganache and pour over the cake for a smooth finish.
  6. Garnish:
    • Top with chopped Snickers bars before serving.
