Chocolate Cheesecake Made Easy

From their buttery Oreo shell to the chocolate cheesecake itself, these chocolate cheesecake bars are sheer chocolate joy. They are a masterpiece of chocolate creation. My recipe calls for the addition of actual melted dark chocolate to the batter, which results in a cheesecake base that is exceptionally decadent. You will find that they are your new go-to chocolate fix!

You loved my regular cheesecake bars so much that I had to re-share this chocolate version. It’s just as simple as the regular version, with minimal ingredients (only 8) and unfussy directions (no water bath!). I personally love making cheesecake bars because they have all the flavor of a full-sized cheesecake, but they bake in half the time. Pretty lovable, right?
