Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars. This post needs no words, really. A picture is worth a thousand, right?
But I do have a small back-story. Dialogue:
Hubby: I have a Dessert Challenge Day at work coming up. Do you have an idea for what I can make?
Me: Awesome! I’ve totally got ideas. What’s the date of the Dessert Challenge?
Me: (Silence. Blink. Blink.)
After I recovered from the mini shock, my excitement to bake something yummy kicked in. I’d been hankering for Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars for quite some time. No better excuse than a Dessert Challenge to break out these decadent treats.
Oh. My. Goodness. This was so, so worth it. So worth the late-night baking and kitchen blunders that occur as a result of late-night baking. Hubby was making an entire pan for work, and I was making another pan for me. A little chaos in the kitchen. Note to Self: Make this during normal hours and pay attention = it’s a cinch!
There’s something here for everyone. Flavorful graham cracker crumb crust for all the crust-lovers. Thick, rich cheesecake for cheesecake fans like myself. Chocolate chip cookie dough full of gooey chocolate for cookie buffs. Decadent and rich. Smooth and creamy. Textured and chewy.
You can taste the crust, cheesecake, and cookie all separately yet it all marries together like a match made in heaven.
You have to try this. Your taste buds will thank you. And your family and friends will look at you with speechless awe. Enjoy!Print
