Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bars

Bar desserts are one of my favorite things to bake … especially when they are cheesecake bars!  Throw in some chocolate, pumpkin spice, sugar cookie crust and caramel sauce … they are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

I’ve shared a similar cheesecake bar recipe in the past and just made a few changes to create a new flavor.  Personally, I love recipes that are versatile like that!

Baking a dessert in one pan and cutting it up into 20 individual servings sure can be a time saver this time of year.  These bars can be made and stored in the fridge for several days … great to make ahead of time!

This is what you will need …

Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bars with Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1 – 16.5 ounce tube of Sugar Cookie Dough (at room temperature)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • 1 Ovation Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Break a Part
  • Caramel Sauce (I used Smucker’s) & candy pumpkins for garnish
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.  Press dough evenly in a greased 9″ x 13″ baking pan.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese  and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla, beat until smooth.
  3. Break candy a part according to package directions.  You will have 20 candy sections, lay candy sections in rows (4 x 5) on sugar cookie dough.
  4. Pour cheesecake mixture over candy and spread evenly.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until edge of crust is light golden brown.
  6. Cool completely, cut into 20 bars, refrigerate.  Serve with caramel sauce.

I found that using the Break a Part candy was a nice way to add a tasty little surprise in each bar, it was so easy to do and tasted great!  The entire family enjoyed these bars … especially with the caramel sauce added.

  1. I never hear or seen anything like ovary ion break a parts. Could I use a candy instead ( if I can find one with pumpkin in it!). Any other suggestions!

  2. You got my attention when I read the word Cheesecake. :} These look fantastic.
    I take it that you found the Ovation Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Break a Part at Target cause I haven’t seen them at WalMart, unless I wasn’t looking in the right place.
    Can’t wait to get these made up. Thank you
