I'm not a good "bar" maker. My last attempt could have been featured on the Pinterest Fail page. Big time fail. Sweetened condensed milk and I do not get along. Well, that and I substituted M&Ms for bite sized York peppermint patties - that may have had something to do with it. Anyway, I decided to try again because it's Christmas Eve and I wanted something that will surprise my son-in-law, the resident chocolate expert.
I must admit, these are yummy! I'm not a bar fan in another respect - I don't like to eat them. Too much going on in one piece of dessert. But, I like these! Maybe it's the crispy chocolate chip cookie dough on the top... maybe it's the Oreo crust... I can't decide. Maybe I should have another one....
If you're planning to make these, give yourself a little time. There are three steps - the crust, the cookie dough, and the cheesecake filling. It took me about an hour (I took a little break to run to the store in between steps for something I forgot so I could finish the recipe). This recipe comes from Two Peas & Their Pod and the link can be found here.
Well worth the effort! Enjoy!
