These mint-flavored cheesecake bars have a chocolate graham cracker crust.
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter melted
6 large (1 cup) chocolate graham crackers, finely crushed
1/2 cup sugar
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 to 2 drops green food color, if desired
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon shortening
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine melted butter and graham cracker crumbs in bowl. Press crumb mixture evenly onto bottom of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.
Combine all filling ingredients in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Spread filling over crust.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bars.
Refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars. Store refrigerated.
To drizzle chocolate in a fine line, pour melted chocolate mixture into a resealable plastic food bag. Cut a very tiny opening in one corner; gently press out chocolate onto bars.
