How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. The Crust:
    Preheat your oven to 350°F.
    Spray a 8 inch brownie pan with cooking spray and layer the bottom with parchment paper.
    In a large bowl bring together all crust ingredients besides the cinnamon and mix with your fingertips until it's all crumbly.
    Set 1/2 cup of the crumbles aside.
    Press the remaining crumbles into your brownie pan.
    Bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Pecan Pie and Cheesecake Layer:
    In a medium bowl bring together all pecan pie ingredients and stir until well combined, set aside.
    In another medium bowl bring together all cheesecake ingredients and mix with an electric mixer until well combined, set aside.
    Mix cinnamon into the crumbles that you set aside earlier.
  3. Finishing up:
    After pre-baking your crust sprinkle chocolate and peanut butter chips over the bottom.
    Spread cream cheese mixture over it.
    Top with pecan pie mixture.
    Sprinkle the remaining crumbles on top.
    Bake for another 35 minutes.
    Let cool completely before serving.
