If you’ve been to my site before then you would know just how much my family loooooves DESSERTS. It’s by far, our favorite thing to make. We all love trying out new recipe, bringing them to family functions and then getting everyone’s opinions on them. If we love it, then we are sure to add it to the family favorites collection. If we didn’t, it’s gets tossed. Simple as that.

This next recipe was one made by my sister, Kellyn. She saw the words Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Bars in the title and knew she had to try it. We were so glad she did because they were simply amazing!! If you look at the ingredients you’ll see that it has butter, cream cheese, chocolate chips, caramel bits, and Toffee bits. Seriously?!? How could a recipe with all of that be bad? NOT POSSIBLE!! We are are here to report that these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars were indeed delicious and will be made again soon. 😉

  1. These look positively delicious! Is it okay to link to your chocolate recipes on my blog once in awhile (with proper recognition, of course) as I recently started to blog about chocolate, too? (also home decor, family lifestyle). I cannot wait to make this. I’m printing the recipe now. Thanks!

  2. We call our version of these “Elephant Bars,” mainly because if you eat too many of them you’ll be as big as an elephant.

  3. Hi! Im just wondering, suppose i dont have toffee and caramel bits, would it still taste good??? I’d really love to try it out without those two for now because I cant go out to get some from the store.

  4. I made these bars and although they were delicious, they were too buttery. The bottom of the bars never browned and were very greasy feeling. I ended up cutting them and then placing on paper towels to try to remove some of the butter. Did I do something wrong? I think the next time I will try to cut the amount of butter from 2 sticks to 1. I hope this doesn’t mess it up. The flavor was great, though.

    1. I had the same problem… Mine also didn’t cook all the way the first go, so with how runny it was and all the butter at the bottom it was just a pudding rather than a bar. Once I put it back in the oven for another 10 – 15 min it was fine, but the edges were too brown for my liking. Fantastic recipe though, definitely saving it!

    2. I don’t see butter in the recipe at all. Did you make up the dry packaged cookie or the refrigerated ready made cookie dough? The recipe calls for the refrigerated dough.
      Would like to know before I try it.

      1. I think the original recipe had a homemade chocolate chip cookie component to it, if I’m not mistaken. I’m assuming it’s been modified now to use premade cookie dough. I would definitely give it a try because the flavor was delicious, minus the butter that was in the original recipe.

        1. Thanks Kelly. It is the refrigerated cookie dough in the tube, but you could use your favorite cookie dough, even homemade. They really are delicious and hope you’ll give them a try!

  5. I guess my oven sucks because I pulled it out @ 25 min and it was still a soup, after putting it back in for a total of 35-40 min it was freaking fantastic! My fiance and I like them better cold than hot though, the cheesecake has an ice cream feel to it Mmmm- definitely making this one regularly now, thanks for sharing!!

  6. 5 stars
    Tried the Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Bars. Oh my gosh, what a hit!! Should have made a double batch. So simple, time saving, and delicious. I drizzled a little caramel sauce on them for good measure. A new family favorite. Thank you.

  7. Looks like this recipe has changed as of the update a few days ago! Gah!! It’s one of our favorites….can you repost or even email me the original? It didn’t include store-bought cookie dough. Thank you for your amazing recipes!!!
