Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 bars
Ingredients
  • Graham Crust:
  • 20 full-sheet honey graham crackers (or 3 cups graham cracker crumbs)
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • Cheesecake Filling:
  • 32 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hazelnut chocolate spread, room temperature
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Line a 12x9 baking pan with parchment paper enough to overhang on the sides, spray with baking spray. Set aside.
  3. Graham Crust:
  4. Using a food processor, pulverize the graham crackers into a fine crumb. Pour into a medium bowl and mix with melted butter and sugar. Press well into the lined pan and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool as you work on the filling.
  5. Cheesecake Filling:
  6. In the bowl on an electric mixer, or using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy, about 3 full minutes. Make sure to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Slowly, pour the filling over the crust. Drop large spoonfuls of hazelnut chocolate spread on top of the filling and using a knife, gently swirl it.
  7. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the cheesecake has settled and the edges are lightly browned.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 30-40 minutes at room temperature on a wire rack and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  9. Lift the bars by the parchment paper out of the pan and using a sharp knife cut into squares. Clean the knife with cold water to remove any crumbs and continue cutting.
  10. Store bars in a covered container for up to 5 - 6 days in the refrigerator.
