This Milky Way Cheesecake Pie is a great dessert to serve for a special occasion or just because. The creaminess of the cheesecake, the chopped Milky Way candy bars throughout and the chocolate and caramel drizzle with additional Milky Ways on top are sure to please family and guests alike!

Chocolate and caramel. They go so very well together and just taste so doggone good! And while I don't typically serve dessert every night after dinner, the family knows that it's a pretty great night when we do have it.
And don't get me wrong, I love to eat a candy bar by itself once in a while, but I find it so much more fun adding them to my desserts. They just make them more fun and taste so good!

I found this recipe in The Recipe Girl Cookbook, by Lori Lange. She is the founder and author of the food blog, Recipe Girl. The original recipe is for Snickers Bar Cheesecake Pie, but I decided to make her Milky Way version instead even though Snickers are a favorite at our house, too! You can find Lori's cookbook here. It has a lot of delicious recipes I'm sure you'll enjoy! Another recipe I made was her Caramel Apple Pie Crust Cookies and they were so good that they didn't last long at all.

Makes one 9-inch pie

Ingredients for Milky Way Cheesecake Pie

Crust

  • 22 Oreo Cookies
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted

Filling

  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 16 Milky Way "Fun Size" candy bars, chopped (about 2 cups)

Topping

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sundae topping
  • 6 Milky Way "Fun Size" candy bars, chopped (about 3/4 cup)

Making your Milky Way Cheesecake Pie

  1. For the crust, place the Oreos in a blender or food processor and crush them until they are fine.
  2. Mix the crumbs with the melted butter in a medium bowl until well blended.
  3. Mold the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. It is easiest to do this using clean hands, making sure that it is evenly pressed into the bottom and up the sides of the plate.
  4. Allow the crust to cool in the freezer for 30 minutes while the candy bars are chopped and the filling is prepared.
  5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  6. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, sugar and eggs until smooth.
  7. Add the 16 chopped Milky Ways and mix until well combined.
  8. Place the filling into the frozen pie crust. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until the middle is completely set.
  9. Set on a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. To decorate, drizzle the chocolate and caramel over the pie and add remaining 6 chopped Milky Way bars.
  11. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Pie will keep for 4 to 5 days covered with plastic wrap.

I'm Lynne and I blog at 365 Days of Baking & More. I'm married and we have three children, two daughters ages 22 and 20, and a son who is 17. My blogging journey began in January 2011 to challenge myself while being a full-time mom. By doing so, I've found my passion, discovered what I want to be when I grow up, and increased my kitchen skills. I've fallen in love with the whole experience! My goal with 365 is to excite you with food and move you into the kitchen if you aren't already there. It's fun, delicious and can be quality time spent your family as you cook and bake together, and then enjoy what you've made around the family table. I look forward to having you join me in the kitchen!
