PostHeaderIcon Just Desserts: Chocolate Marble Cheesecake Bars

For the crust:
  • 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs (about 60 wafers)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
For the cheesecake:
  • 3 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 sections (1/2 oz. each) baking chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Stir together 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs, cocoa and powdered sugar in medium bowl. Stir in the melted butter until well blended. Press mixture firmly on bottom of 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
Beat cream cheese in large bowl until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk, beating until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.

Pour half of batter evenly over prepared crust. Stir melted chocolate into remaining batter; drop by spoonfuls over vanilla batter. With a knife, swirl gently through batter to marble.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until set. Cool in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate several hours until chilled. Cut into bars. Makes 24 to 36 bars. (For storing, cover and keep refrigerated prior to serving.)
