It’s no secret that I am in cahoots with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese. Cahoots as in, I freaking love their cream cheese. I’ve been tempted in the past to buy the store brand cream cheese, I mean a 10 for $10 sale is sometimes hard to resist.
But after numerous cheesecake fails, it occurred to me, why go cheap and chance a recipe fail? Seriously. I have never had a problem when baking with PHILADELPHIA. And, it’s so delicious and creamy!
So when they asked me to join forces as a brand ambassador, it should not shock you that I said yes. I take my sponsored post opportunities very seriously, I only choose to work with brands that I love and use everyday anyways.
And of course, PHILADELPHIA cream cheese makes an appearance in my baking often!
Today, I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes. These Cheesecake bars were so good I couldn’t keep them in the house for fear of eating them all by myself! My husband’s work was fortunate enough to get a big plate of dessert at their staff meeting a few weeks ago!
Using my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and a graham cracker base, I whipped up a delicious cheesecake filling to nestle in the center!
And, as I said before, PHILADELPHIA cream cheese is delicious and creamy because it is made from fresh local milk and real wholesome cream, which makes it the perfect filling for these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake bars! PHILADELPHIA set up some high standards for themselves, in addition to being made with local milk and real cream, they go from farm to fridge in 6 days. There are no preservatives in the cream cheese bricks. And they use REAL ingredients in their flavors (like real jalapenos and crunchy pecans).
I like to make these cheesecake bars the night before serving. Or first thing in the morning. I think the more time the cheesecake filling has to cool and chill the better they taste! Which makes these perfect for your brunch or family gathering. You can make them ahead of time and have no stress about dessert. And because your cheesecake is covered in cookie dough, you don’t have to stress about cracks in your cheesecake!
So, have you planned your Easter or Spring brunch menu yet? Whether you are serving a traditional ham or going the vegetarian route, these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars are sure to complement your main dish! I’m positive your family and friends will thank you.
