Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

When I first saw these on Brooke's blog, I couldn't wait to make them for myself. Chocolate? Cheesecake? Sign me UP!

I made these for Christmas as well, and they were another hit. Absolutely delicious, and so ridiculously easy to make that I don't understand why I waited until now.

It probably took these guys almost 50 minutes, maybe even more, so make sure you keep an eye on them and really wait for them to be firm. Delish!

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® Create 'n Bake® refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in coconut.

In ungreased, 9- or 8-inch square pan, break up half of cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan to form crust. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough. Crumble and sprinkle remaining half of dough over cream cheese mixture.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until chilled. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store in refrigerator.


  1. Am I missing something? You talk about adding in coconut but it is not listed in the ingredients anywhere I can see.

  2. I agree about the coconut! It's not listed in the ingredients?

    Can you make this without coconut? My husband dislikes it.

  3. I need to make this.... with me being such a chocolate chip fanatic and my husband who adores cheesecake, this will satisfy both our loves!

  4. Sorry for the confusion!! I deleted it from the ingredients list because I didn't use it (it was listed as "optional") and forgot to adjust the directions.

  5. Thanks Lauren. I think it sounds better without anyway. Can't wait to try them!
