Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

I think I have mentioned before that my work has a monthly pizza party to celebrate all of the birthdays in that month within our company. On pizza day, they bring in a variety of different topping pizzas and a ton of desserts. Oh the desserts, oh so many delicious desserts. Ever since the last pizza party I have become obsessed with cheesecake. Not that I didn’t love it before, but now I find myself craving it all the time. Last week it was french toast with cheesecake filling and this week, it is cheesecake bars. This does not really fit into my diet, but oh well. These are super simple to make and so good.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

Ingredients:

Cookie crust

A package of Betty Crocker oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

1 egg (per directions)

1 stick of margarine (softened) (per directions)

Filling

1 8oz  package of cream cheese (softened)

1/4 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of vanilla greek yogurt

1 egg

1/4 cup of chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. Prepare cookie mix per package directions. Press 1/2 the cookie mixture into a square 8″ baking pan. In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese, sugar & yogurt on low speed until blended and smooth. Do not overbeat. Add the egg & quickly beat in. Add the chocolate chips & stir. Pour the cheese mixture over the cookie crust. Take the remaining cookie dough & press and flatten between hands and place over the cheese mixture. Do this in pieces and spread out evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until cookie is golden & is firm in the middle. Cook times will vary. Let cool before cutting and serving. They will set as they cool.
