How To Make Cheese Cake Filling

You will need:

  • 2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 6 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream (or yogurt)

Cream together the cream cheese, this is the longest part because you want to make sure that there are no lumps in the cream cheese before adding anything else. I mix mine 6-8 minutes until I am sure it is lump free.

Add in the sugar one tablespoon at a time and combine completely.

Add in the sour cream and mix well.

Finally add in the eggs one at a time making sure to completely combine before adding the next. Mix as little as possible to get the eggs incorporated well in the cheesecake batter .

Pour the cheesecake batter in the prepared springform and tap a few times against the counter.

How To Cook Cheesecake In The Instant Pot

Now the crust and batter are in the springform cake tin you are ready to cook your Snickers cheesecake in the pressure cooker. 

Prepare your pressure cooker with 1 cup of water and place the trivet in the bottom of the pot.

Cover your cheesecake with aluminium foil, and place on the trivet. Set pressure cooker to 35 minutes high pressure. Allow the pot to naturally release.

After you can open the pot, take the cheesecake out and let it sit on the counter until cooled. Then place in the refrigerator 8 hours overnight. You should find your cheesecake has set and it should have a slight wobble.

Once the cheesecake is completely cool you can top it with a chocolate ganache and Snickers candy pieces.
