These bars are delicious! I love chocolate and i love cream cheese so i knew this would be a winner! i saw them on brooke's blog and had to make them! The original recipe did call for 1/2 cup of coconut, if desired but i omited. I may try that next time. Nik...these are for you, girl! I know they are going to be right up your ally! Considering you text me just to tell me that i hadn't posted the recipe yet...i know you are dying to make these!! ha! :)
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.
In ungreased 8 or 9 inch square pan, break up half of cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan to form the crust. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough. Crumble and sprinkle remaining half of dough over cream cheese mixture. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool 30 minutes and then put in refrigerator for at least two hours or until chilled. For bars, cut into four rows by four rows. Store in fridge.
