I am very honestly having a bit of a panic attack about the fact it's the 24th of November and I am still just ordering and planning my Christmas decor, gifts aren't purchased and I have barely any baking completed. Granted it's 30 days to go but the last few weeks fly by and this is the last weekend that doesn't involve a party of some sort.
If your still hanging on with me this is quick and simple slice to pull off on a busy day, takes 15 minutes max to put together and the pay off is big. 35 minutes in the oven and 30 to cool. Chuck it in the fridge and slice it up the next day. I love feeling like I have something in the works even when things are rushed.
5 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
20 Crushed Oreo cookies or any other chocolate sandwich cookie (crushed)
2 16oz packages of softened cream cheese
1/4 cup white sugar (or substitute)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 large candy bars (chopped)
Line 8x8 baking pan with tin foil and lightly grease.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a medium mixing bowl combined crushed cookies and melted butter until fully combined.
Pour the crumb mix into the prepared baking pan and press the mixture into a even layer.
in electric mixing combine cream cheese, and egg for 5 minutes. It should be smooth and creamy.
Add in sugar and vanilla.
Fold in chopped candy bars.
Spread cheese cake in a smooth even layer over the crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes. the edges should just be turning light brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool 30 min.
Place in refrigerator over night to set.
Lift tin foil from baking tray and peel off of the slice.
Cut into your desired slices. I like smaller squares and then cutting those into triangles. Makes for a pretty presentation on cupcake wrappers.
Trust me if there is one recipe to try this year this is the one!!
