Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12-20
Ingredients
CRUST:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups flour
CHEESECAKE:
  • 12 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips
OTHER:
  • 4 Twix bars
  • 1 pkg. Rolo minis
  • 25 light caramels (I used all of an 8 oz. package.)
Instructions
  1. For the crust: Mix butter with sugar and cornstarch. Add salt and flour and mix until combined.
  2. Press dough into the bottom of a 9"x13" cake pan, lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  3. While crust is baking, prepare candy by unwrapping caramels and cutting them in half, and unwrapping Twix bars and cutting them in fourths.
  4. When crust is removed from the oven, immediately sprinkle with caramel candies. Place Twix bar pieces evenly over the top.
  5. Combine cream cheese with sugar and egg. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour mixture over the crust.
  6. Sprinkle with mini Rolo candies. (Use as many as you want. I used about ⅔ of the bag.)
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  8. Let cool completely before cutting. (I chilled mine in the fridge for a couple hours.)
