Reese's Cheesecake Bars

I love having reasons to bake goodies. A few weeks ago my mother in law turned 50 and we went home to spend the day with her. I made these delicious Cheesecake Bars for the party we had that night and they were a huge hit. There wasn't even a crumb left to pick at.

Reese's Cheesecake Bars

14 graham crackers
12 Tbsp. butter- melted
6 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt

4 pkgs. cream cheese- softened
1 1/3 cup sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla

1 bag mini Reeses peanut butter cups - chopped
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil, leaving a few inch overhang on each side. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. For crust crush graham crackers until fine. Add butter, brown sugar, flour and salt. Stir until all ingredients are wet. Press into the bottom of dish. Bake crust for 12 minutes until browning. Let cool for 30 minutes.

In a large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar. Beat well. Add eggs one at a time. Beat after each additions. Beat in sour cream and vanilla. Pour on top of crust. Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes until the edges are set and the middle still jiggles slightly (only slightly). When done, turn oven off and open oven slightly. Let cheesecake cool with the oven. Cover and refrigerate overnight or longer.

Remove from fridge and remove bars from pan- using the foil overhang. Cut into small squares. Melt chocolate chips. Drizzle chocolate over each square (i used my cake frosting piping bag) and top with chopped reese's candy bars. Keep refrigerated until served.
