Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars



Yes. These are just as delicious as they look. Seriously.
And don't be fooled about how long the ingredient list is, they really are pretty simple.

And everyone loooooves them!


Ingredients:

Crust
 - 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs {one sleeve}
 - 5 tablespoons of butter {melted}
2/3 cup of mini chocolate chips


Cookie Dough
 - 5 tablespoons of butter
 - 1/3 cup of brown sugar
 - 3 tablespoons of sugar
 - 1/8 teaspoon of salt
 - 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
 - 3/4 cup of flour
 - 1 cup of mini chocolate chips


Cheesecake Filling
 - 10 ounces of cream cheese
 - 1/4 cup of sugar
 - 1 egg
 - 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Also have some extra chocolate on hand to drizzle over the top!



Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. 
Line your 9x13 pan with tin foil {make sure to extend it over the edges of the dish}. Then add cooking spray on top of the tin foil.




For the crust, combine your graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter. Then stir in the chocolate chips.




Press the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan and partially up the sides. Bake for six minutes.




Next up is the cookie dough. 
Mix the butter, brown sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth.
Slowly add in the flour {I always make a mess with the powdery stuff!}




Stir in the chocolate chips.


 


And finally,  time for the cheesecake filling...
 Mix the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.




Pour the cheesecake filling into the baked crust. 




Then spread the cookie dough over the top of the filling.




Bake for 30 minutes. Then drizzle with melted chocolate.
To do this, I like to pour the melted chocolate into a small ziploc bag and then trim the corner off.




The biggest issue with this dessert?
 How do you serve them? They can be eaten hot, cold or room temperature {our favorite}.




So stinking good!!!
