This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Challenge Butter. The opinions and text are all mine.

Chocolate chip cookies or cheesecake? Why choose when you can have these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars!! They are the best of both worlds!

The BEST idea EVER!!! My family DEVOURED these bars!


Life is full of decisions ... decisions like, should I get up and exercise or sleep an extra hour? Chicken tacos or beef tacos? You know, important stuff!

This recipe has been in my recipe box for more than 20 years and it's always a favorite with family, friends, and when I take it to potlucks! I love that it only has FOUR INGREDIENTS and it comes together pretty quickly. You can use pre-made refrigerated cookie dough - or use your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. You'll need about 2 cups to make these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars!


What are you waiting for ... make the recipe!! You'll be soooo glad you did! 💓

by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 16 servings

  • 1 large egg

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.

3. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until the mixture is smooth. Spread over the crust. Crumble the remaining cookie dough over the top.

4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean.

5. Cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate any leftovers.
