Virtual Cookie Exchange And My Best Cheesecake Chocolate Cookie Bar

It's my day for the Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop...welcome!

I got a little creative and put together what I think is the
Best Cheesecake Chocolate Cookie Bar ever. 
It's got cheesecake, chocolate, and caramel...what's not to love!

Carol's Best Cheesecake Chocolate Cookie Bar

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 9” x 13” pan.

Layer 1:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted

Mix together graham cracker crumbs, cocoa, granulated sugar, and butter until combined. Press mixture on the bottom of the lightly greased 9” x 13” pan.

Layer 2:
2 8-ounce cream cheese packages, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese and sugar until blended. Beat in vanilla and eggs until blended.
Carefully spread mixture over Layer 1.

Layer 3:
1 can sweetened condensed milk, 14 ounces (not evaporated milk)
1/4 cup flour
1 egg
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 t. baking powder
1 cup chopped pecans

Beat sweetened condensed milk, flour, egg, vanilla extract, and baking powder until blended. Stir in chopped pecans and spread batter evenly over Layer 2.

Layer 4:
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over Layer 3. Bake 30-40 minutes or until set and light/golden brown. Cool completely and cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

Optional Layer 5:
Once bars are completely cooled, drizzle with bottled caramel sauce and cut into bars.
