Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

October 6, 2013

I made this dessert one night to bring to a friend’s house for dinner. It was pretty easy and tasty. The next time I’d use more chocolate chips on top of the cookie base.

Ingredients:

Cookie Base:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (2 packages or 16 crackers is 2 cups of crumbs)

3) For filling, sprinkle 1.5 cups chocolate chips over cookie base.
4) Place cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in sour cream. Gradually add sugar. Beat until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Pour over chocolate chips in pan.
