A decadent dessert, these Chocolate Cheesecake Bars have a creamy cheesecake filling that is nestled between a chocolate cookie crust and chocolate crumb topping. One of my favorite gluten free desserts!
Despite the fact that I enjoy making desserts, I am really not a big dessert eater. I do enjoy cookies – classic cookies – but nothing fancy. I can pass on cake, pastries, and pies. But there is one dessert item that renders me completely helpless: cheesecake bars. It’s kind of ironic because one of my least favorite desserts is cheesecake. Go figure!
I’ve never been a big fan of desserts. I do love, I mean love, cookies, but desserts such as cakes, pies, and pastries, really do little for me.
However, (isn’t there almost always ‘however’), I do have a weakness for cheesecake bars. If you’ve never tried any one of the gazillion variations on cheesecake bars, well, you must. The base crust is topped with a simple cheesecake filling, then finished with crumbs….huge, sweet, delicious crumbs. Everything is baked to perfection, then chilled. For me, these are the perfect dessert.
