Dark Chocolate & Mint Cheesecake Bars

Yesterday I promised another variation of my Cheesecake Bars and here it is …

Today’s version is made the same as yesterday’s, Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bars … just used the Dark Chocolate Mint Ovation Break a Part.  I always make something mint flavored for Christmas, but these would be a great choice any time of year.  Cheesecake, dark chocolate, mint, sugar cookies and topped with hot fudge … it can’t get any better than that!

This is what you will need …

Dark Chocolate Mint Cheesecake Bars

  • 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 Dark Chocolate Mint Break a Part
  • Hot Fudge Sauce (I used Mrs. Richardson’s) and peppermint candies 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 hot fudge sauce.

Today’s smile … yesterday I was in the dairy section of the store and overheard a little girl telling her mom “Look Mommy, chocolate eggs!” … she was pointing at the brown eggs!  It made me laugh … thought I would share 😉

Thank you to SweetWorks for sending me the Mint Break a Part 🙂

  2. I love how your dishes are a snap to prepare and fun for the kids! I can’t wait to give this a try and see how my boys like it. Have a super week! Are you ready for the holidays? I just realised yesterday that it is mid November and if my x-mas cards are on a slow shrimp boat from China they will never reach their destination on time. Maybe I will send out Chinese New Year cards instead… LOL Take care, BAM
