Sweetness and light – chocolate, peanut butter and caramel – it’s Snickers cheesecake!

I attend a weekly board lunch (sadly not in the food or hospitality industries) and I’m the one who usually ends up organising the menus. This task is more important than you might think, as there are often differences of opinion… tempers can fray…. but if I can manage to punctuate the conversation with a few appreciative ooos and ahhhhhs, then I can help to steer us away from out and out discord.

Most effective of all, and of course, most difficult to achieve is a dish which really stops all of us in our tracks….one which moves us from friction to harmony as it were.

This chocolate, peanut butter and caramel cheesecake got there – and received unanimous, and appreciative, approval. Everything was suddenly sweetness and light.

It’s been made many times since. A further vote of confidence came when, overburdened by the remains of many cakes and tarts resulting from my testing and experimentation, I tried to offload this cheesecake onto my son. “Oh no!” exclaimed a panicked Chief Taster, “don’t give him that… I really like that!”.

He’s not the only one. The compatibility of the ingredients is well-established – this is a sort of Snickers-as-cheesecake. And Snickers has been reported (NBC News, 2012) as the most popular chocolate bar in both the US, and indeed worldwide.
