Another wonderful recipe from my friend Danielle! I made it for my best friend’s grandson’s birthday – he loves Twix. And what a hit it was! Easy to make too, thanks to Danielle’s instructions. Check out her blog, Hugs&CookiesXOXO – it’s divine!
- 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 8 tablespoons of butter, preferably unsalted
Line 8×8 pan with nonstick foil and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in the microwave and stir in the crumbs and sugar. Press into the bottom of the pan and bake 10 minutes. Let cool.
Chocolate cheese cake layer
- 12 oz cream cheese, room temp
- ¾ cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 6 Kit Kat packages or lots of snack sized ones
Once crust is cool, line bottom of pan with Kit Kats. Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth using an electric mixer. Add cocoa. Add egg. Once smooth, spread carefully over kit kats with offset spatula.
Bake at 350 for approx. 35 minutes. Let cool then refrigerate.
- 10 ounces dark chocolate chips and
- 8 Tbsp. butter, preferably unsalted
Melt chocolate and butter by microwaving. When smooth, spread on cheesecake layer and chill.
For the White chocolate design Danielle melted white Merckens disks and piped straight lines from left to right. Then, run a toothpick vertically from top to bottom and switch to bottom/top, alternating the direction for each line.
