These chocolate cheesecake bars have a Brownie Brittle crust and are packed with butterscotch chips. You would never know they are healthier!
The best day of the year is finally upon our taste budz.
It’s National Cheesecake Day Ya’ll! Y to the ES!
If you’ve been around FFF longer than about 30 seconds, you would know that I could live in a house made of cheesecake, and be one very happy lady.
One very single lady (I don’t think Mr.FFF wants to live in cheesecake house) but, nonetheless, happy.
We’ve eaten healthier peanut butter cheesecake bars, healthy pumpkin cheesecake bars, Carrot cake vegan cheesecake and we have even eaten it FOR BREAKFAST in an oatmeal recipe with blueberry cheesecake swirl AND strawberry cheesecake overnight oats.
My name is Taylor and I am a cheesecake-aholic. Do they make a 12 step program for that? I should ask Google.
What better way to celebrate an ongoing love affair than by pairing it with a more current love affair?
Yep. Cheesecake WITH Brownie Brittle. It is happening to your faces RIGHT HERE.
Ya’ll LOVED the Freezer Pops SO much that I knew I had to give some more tasty, Brownie Brittle Treats.
Except, this time, we went a little (read: a lot) heavier on the chocolate factor.
I decided to make the crust entirely from Brownie Brittle (and some sugar and butter because: yum) to give it that little extra CRUNCH factor that the creamy, cheesecake topping needed.
Do you hear that? Crunchy, creamy….chocolate.
The 3 C’s of perfection. And texture. And love.
Like most recipes, I made the Huberoni bring these to work to test them on his co-workers. We both went googly-eyed for them, but it’s nice to hear that other people’s eyeballs also wandered into googly territory over your food, you know?
Side note: Please tell me I was not the only one that stuck those plastic googly eyes on ALL THE THINGS as a child? Pretty sure that my pencil case had about eleventy billion eyeballs in grade 6.
Back to cheesecake.
I am happy to report back that there were threats of Mr. FFF losing his job if he didn’t come to work his next shift with more cheesecake bars.
I might be over-exaggerating slightly, HOW-EV-ER, they were a hyooge hit!
I mean, with crunchy Brownie Brittle bottom, creamy cheesecake and a whole lotta choco-lata, how could they not be?
Protip: If you want to be the most awesome person at the National Cheesecake Celebration party that I know you’re going to tonight, bring these.
Protip, the sequel: Skip the party and eat the whole batch yourself.
