Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

I really, really love the flavor of chocolate, cream cheese and sour cream. The tangy flavor of the dairy really plays well with the chocolate. This delicious recipe comes from Martha Stewart. It is put together quickly, trust me the hardest part is letting it chill in the fridge afterwards. Ready for the recipe?


Chocolate Cheesecake Bars
Makes 9 servings

Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup cookie crumbs
3 Tbsp. melted butter
1 bar (8 ounces) cream cheese (softened)
1 cup light sour cream
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1 large whole egg plus 1 large egg white

1. Preheat oven to 325°. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Line with two crisscrossed pieces of parchment or wax paper, spraying between sheets. Spray lined pan; set aside.

2. Combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Press crumbs into bottom of prepared pan.

3. Blend cream cheese and sour cream in food processor until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add cocoa, cornstarch, sugar, egg, and egg white; process until smooth. Pour into pan.

4. Bake until just set, 35 to 40 minutes; cool completely in pan. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Invert onto a tray; peel off paper, and reinvert crust side down. Cut into 9 squares.
