Chocolate Cheescake Bars

Kaitlin, my youngest daughter is started to get interested in what goes on in the kitchen. She was bored yesterday and asked if we could go make "something" that has cheesecake in it. We found this recipe and it was a lot of fun to bake with my daughter.

Chocolate Cheesecake Bars - In a food processor, grind 24 chocolate creme filled cookies to fine crumbs and place in a medium bowl. Add 2 tablespoons melted butter to the crumbs and blend well. Place the crumb mixture in a 13 x 9 baking pan and spread out evenly to form a bottom crust to the bars. In a large mixing bowl beat on medium speed, three 8 oz. soften creme cheese bars until fluffy, gradually add one 14 oz. can of condensed milk while continuing to beat. When the condensed milk is thoroughly blended in with the cream cheese, add 3 eggs and blend into mixture then add 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract. Pour creme cheese mixture on top of cookie crust. Now melt two 1 oz. semi-sweet chocolate squares and drizzle over creme cheese mixture. Take a butter knife and pull chocolate to form ""swirls". Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 45 minutes. Cool bars, then place in refrigerator for 2 hours and cut into squares. Store covered in refrigerator.
