    Simple and Delicious

    Tammie Pomposello from Lehighton, PA

    This recipe is quick and easy and everyone at work is excited to see me bring them in for our Pot Luck luncheons...they get eaten just as quickly and easily!

    Better Now

    Kate Hoppe from Powell

    I added a cup of raspberries to the cream mixture to give it more color and flavor.

    Chocolate Cream Bars

    Lauralee Hensley from Pueblo West, CO

    This recipe is wonderful, reminding me of a delicious chocolate covered cheese cake I had in a fancy restaurant once. Give it a try, I believe at least more than one member of your family will truly enjoy these dessert bars too.

    Excellent

    Rentha Davis from ,

    I'm not a chocolate chip cookie fanatic, so I was skeptical about this recipe. I made it and everyone loves it--it's rich, but tones down the chocolate chips with the cream cheese filling. I will make it again this week.

    WONDERFUL!

    Lois Doyle from Ocean, NJ

    These are delicious! I baked them for a church covered dish dinner and they were VERY popular!

    These won't last long on the table!

    Rachael Muldrow from Greenville, SC

    This is probably the BEST and FASTEST dessert you can make! People ask me for the recipe every single time I make them, and I am almost embarrassed to tell them how easy it is when they've heaped so much praise on them! I find them very rich and get about 25 servings out of a 9x13 pan of these. You will NOT be sorry if you make these!

    Very dry

    Diane Sem from Rockford IL

    I couldn't wait to make these bars for a graduation party after reading all the rave reviews. I baked according to the recipe but they turned out very dry. I would not have taken them had I had something else to bring. I was very disappointed and will not make them again.

    Julie Ostiguy from Wareham, MA

    I used to make this recipe with my mother when I was a kid. Very kid friendly. And you can create a thicker layer of cookies if you'd like a little extra something!

  •  Star(s)

    GREAT either way!!

    Vicki Rudolph from Farmington, MN

    I made this per the recipe and they were decadent and a lot of WW points. So I made them with the cookie dough, fat free cream cheese, splenda and egg beaters. Unless you'd had them together you would never know they were just as decadent and 1/3 of the original points.

    SHERRY YOUNG from CAPE CORAL, FL

    This recipe was a great hit at Thanksgiving this year! I've had requests for the recipe and have been asked to make this for our Boy Scouts Christmas party. Very rich, so I cut the squares a bit smaller. This recipe is easy enough for kids to make also. Yummy!

    Easy and Good

    DESIREE FRANK from EVANSVILLE, IN

    I made these for the Office Birthday party and they were a big hit. Cost to make is kinda costly, but well worth it. I didn't get to melt the chocolate chip to drizzle over the top and they were still good. If you like lots of chocolate this will be your true fix.
