Ingredients

  • Crust

  • 1 1/2

    cups cookie crumbs (I used butter cookies)

  • 6

    tablespoons butter, melted

  • 3/4

    cup mini chocolate chips

  • Filling

  • 8

    ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • Cookies Dough Topping

  • 5

    tablespoons butter, at room temperature

  • 1/4

    cup brown sugar

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/8

    teaspoon salt (just a pinch)

  • 3/4

    cup all purpose flour

  • 1

    cup regular sized chocolate chips

  • Candy melts or chocolate bark (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees, line a square 8x8 or 9x9 pan with foil or parchment paper. Lightly spray with cooking spray. For your crust, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Stir in chocolate chips. Press cookie mixture into bottom and up sides of prepared pan. Bake for 6 minutes. remove from oven and let cool. Cream cream cheese, add in sugar, egg and vanilla, cream again till smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture over crust. Now for your cookie dough topping, Cream butter, add in sugars, cream again. Add in vanilla, then salt and flour. The dough will be crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips. Crumble cookie dough mixture over cream cheese layer. Bake in your preheated 325 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Just until the edges of your crust start to turn golden and when you shake the pan, the cream cheese layer is firm, not woobly. Let cool completely before cutting. For an extra layer of chocolaty goodness, drizzle some melted chocolate bark across the top. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, if it lasts that long.
