Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Easy creamy cheesecake bars without the fuss of being a proper cheesecake.  These were snatched up before I had even finished cutting them! 

You will need:
1 box chocolate teddy grahams (or chocolate cookies)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
24 oz full-fat cream cheese
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup sour cream
6-12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 if drizzling chocolate over top)

1. Place teddy grahams in sturdy plastic bag and crush to crumbs.

2. In a bowl, cream together cream cheese.  Mix in eggs, vanilla, and sour cream. 

3. Fold in 6 oz. chocolate chips.

4. Pour mixture over chocolate crust.

5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 350º.

6. If desired, melt 6 oz chocolate chips in microwave until liquid, stirring occasionally.  Drizzle over cheesecake bars. Warning: bars are difficult to cut cleanly with the drizzled chocolate.  REFRIGERATE!

Get someone to do the leg work for ya ;)
