Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cheesecake Bars

27 Jan

Hello hello hello.

I think it is mandatory to always bake when ya got company over. I feel obliged to. Almost like a tea party date, except it’s a surprise. No one has tea parties anymore…

I’ve been going through a big cheesecake phase these days. Some good stuff has been happening! These were easy and pretty good. Next time I would add peanut butter in the cheesecake batter to intensify the flavour. If you prefer light and delicate tasting cheesecake, these are for you.

I’m also really into gingersnap cookie crumb crusts. Such a perfect flavour combo and I’ve heard good feedback on it. Make these for your friends when they come over and have a surprise tea party. That’s what friends do for friends.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cheesecake Bars

Crust

  • 1/2 cup crushed gingersnap cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup melted (then cooked slightly) butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp (or more to your taste) flour
Filling
  • 2 x 8 oz cream cheese packages
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (I used honey flavoured)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips
Glaze
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil.
Mix crust ingredients together, and press into bottom of pan on top of foil. Use a spoon to help. Bake in oven for 12 minutes. Remove and cool for 15 minutes.

Tea party time!

Meanwhile, beat together cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in sugar, eggs, vanilla, and yogurt. Add in cinnamon, chocolate, and peanut butter chips until all combined. When crust is cooled, pour in cheesecake batter and bake for 35-40 minutes. When finished, remove and let cool for an hour. Then cool in fridge for 3 hours or longer.

when cheesecake is cooled, heat up chocolate in microwave and spread evenly over cheesecake. slice into bars and stuff yo face.

Have a phenomenal weekend!
