I think you could bake anything sweet into a cheesecake and it would be delicious. Chocolate caramel candies are my favorite sweet treat and they would also be a delicious addition to any recipe. So when my hubby asked (* insert subliminally persuaded) me to make Rolo Cheesecake Bars for him by casually posing a pic on my Facebook wall, how could I resist? We decided to make them for a family get together that way we would not eat the whole 9×13 dish ourselves. Needless to say they were AMAZING. Think chocolate and caramel combined with creamy cheesecake and golden graham cracker crust – how can that be bad? The rolos melted into the cheesecake batter in the oven and the chocolate glaze was an additional treat. Top it with rolos for decoration and you have the best tasting cheesecake bar you have ever tasted!

Crust:

3 cups of graham cracker crumbs

1 cup of sugar

2 sticks of melted butter

Stir all together and press into a 9×13 pan lined with nonstick foil. Bake crust at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes and cool.

Filling:

2  8-oz packages of cream cheese

2 eggs

1 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of flour

Beat until smooth, then add one package of mini rolos – the kind in the zip pack that are unwrapped. Pour onto the cool crust and bake cheesecake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool and add glaze.

Glaze:

! stick of butter

6 oz of chocolate chips

Melt in microwave. Stir until smooth and add 4 teaspoons of light corn syrup. Pour smoothly on cheesecake bars and chill overnight. Cut with big knife. Garnish with half a rolo and/or chocolate drizzle.
