The Ultimate Cake Mix Cookie Book Pt. 2

I already reviewed the drop cookies from The Ultimate Cake Mix Cookie Cook Book and today I'm doing one of the cookie bar recipes. This is the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars. I will say I did see a typo in this recipe and didn't realize it until I was typing it out. In the book it mentions you need vanilla, but it never tells you when to put it in, but based on all of my baking knowledge, I'm guessing you add it with the cream cheese and sugar.

What you need:
  • 1 (18.25 oz) package yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

What to do:
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Grease or line a 13x9 inch baking pan
  • Place the cake mix, butter, and 1 egg in a large bowl.
  • Beat with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes until blended.
  • Stir in the oats with a wooden spoon. Reserve 1 1/2 cups cake mixture.
  • Press remaining mixture into prepared pan.
  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and remaining 2 eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes until smooth.
  • Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over crust.
  • Mix remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips into reserved crumbs, then sprinkle over cheesecake layer.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes or until topping is crisp-looking and golden.
  • Run knife around sides of pan to loosen bars.
  • Transfer to wire rack and cool completely.
  • Chill at least 2 hours, then cut into bars.
These are super yummy! Aaron helped me make them and everything. Be sure to check back next week because I'll be doing one of the specialty cookie recipes.
