This is one of those recipes that if you can make it to the dipping stage it makes the dessert better but it will be hard...especially if everybody is home.

How to Make Chocolate-Covered Cheesecake Squares

Step-by-Step

  • 1Line a 9" square baking pan with foil and grease the foil.
  • 2In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, pecans, and butter. Press into prepared pan, set aside.
  • 3In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and sour cream until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour over crust. Bake at 325* for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack. Freeze overnight.
