    These bars are delicious and great-looking with the mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top.

    These are great. Melt in your mouth chocolate cheesecake with a thin chocolate crust. In our home this is perfect as a whole cheesecake would not be eaten by hubby and I alone. We had no trouble munching up an 8x8 pan of these. Easy to make, cleanup was a breeze. Try them! I have them pictured on my page

    Perfect for a "light" dessert. Rather than making a full cheesecake these delicious bars are the perfect size ( I cut into 16 rather than 9 ). The taste is WOW, Thank you for your recipe.
