Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars


If I had posted these bars before I chose my Top 10 Desserts, they definitely would have been included! I mean really, what's not to like? You have your cookie dough on top of a cheesecake layer on top of a graham cracker crust that is dotted with mini chocolate chips - heaven!

They took a little bit of time and effort because of the different components you have to make, but it's well worth it for the finished result! I normally don't line my pan with parchment paper (or foil, as I did here), even if the recipe tells me to, but I really recommend it with this one. Even when refrigerated, the bars are a little soft to cut, so taking out the whole pan of them really makes for nice, even bars.

I didn't make any other changes to this recipe except using low fat cream cheese (hey, gotta feel a little healthy, right?) so I will just link you to the blog, Dinner and Dessert, where I found these!

Pan lined with foil ready to bake...

and out of the oven.

These look SO good. They're on my to-make list, too. I really need to work with more than 2 people so I can make stuff like this and then pawn a lot of it off on coworkers so I don't gain so much weight... :P
