If you are a Snicker fan this is incredible and rich. 12 servings --You only need a small piece.  A large Keebler Graham cracker crust can be used instead of the homemade.

1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs
1 TBS sugar
6 TBS unsalted butter melted (salted works)
Heat oven to 350. Combine ingredients and press into a buttered 9" glass
pie pan (I sometimes use a springform pan). Bake about 5 min. Cool on rack. Maintain oven temp.

6 TBS flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter (cut in pieces)
4 oz semisweet choc. chopped or
1/2 C. Chocolate Chips
1 oz unsweetened choc. chopped or
(3 T. Cocoa and 1 T. oil)
1/2 cup sugar
1 lg egg
1 lg egg yolk
1 tps vanilla extract

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. Combine butter and
chocolates in microwave until melted (if using cocoa and oil just stir together with melted butter and chocolate). Stir together until smooth add vanilla. Cool slightly. Using and electric mixer beat sugar, egg and egg yolk in a medium bowl until slightly thickened. Add dry ingredients and chocolate mixture and mix until just combined. Pour into crust and bake until almost set ( about 17 min.) Cool
on rack for 10 min.

Cut up about 8 1/2 oz Snicker's bars and place on fudge layer. (Use the mini's or cut the small ones in two or three pieces.)

12 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
1/3 c sugar
1 lg egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
With an electric mixer, combime cheese and sugar, add egg and vanilla and
beat until smooth. Spread mixture over Snicker's and bake for about 15
min. or until set. Cool

Melt 2 oz milk chocolate or 1/4 C. chocolate chips and 2 T. whipping cream (the microwave works) drizzle on top (I like a criss cross pattern). Refrigerate and serve chilled.

Looked too good not to try, so yesterday my family enjoyed a small slice which was enough because it is rich and yummy. There were 19 here for dinner.
