My husband and I host both sides of our families on Thanksgiving every year. I came up with this candy-topped cheesecake a few years ago, and everybody went nuts over it. —Tammy Baker, Bowling Green, Kentucky

  • Bake at 350° for 55-65 minutes or until center is just set and top appears dull. Remove springform pan from water bath. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with Heath bars.
  • Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Chop the dark chocolate candy bar; melt in a microwave and stir until smooth. Drizzle over top of cheesecake.
