Double Chip Cheesecake Bars

I love to cook and sometimes create my own recipes. I got creative one afternoon, and this dessert is the result.

    This was awesome. @ yides , to not have all the chips just settle at the bottom I found whipping the cheesecake batter a bit more than whats recommended makes it a lot more fluffy and the chips stay consistent throughout. =)

    This was a wonderful dessert! I did half tsp almond and half tsp vanilla instead of all almond. My husband really liked it.

    The reviewer on May 17, 2010 said she got three layers. To avoid this, don't add the chocolate/butterscotch chips to the batter. Instead, stir in the walnuts only into the batter, and spread the chips on top of the final layer. That way they will melt into the layer without sinking, while also giving a nice marbeled effect. You can also vary the almond with vanilla extract if you aren't partial to almond.

    The taste was very good, but all the chocolate chips settled to the bottom right on top of the crust, so there were 3 layers: crust, chocolate and cheese. It was delicious but flat and didn't look at all like the picture. Quite misleading.

    I love cheesecake and this was much easier. My bosses loved it too when I brought it to work for Bosses Day.

    These are very good. I love the almond flavor to them.
