Triple Layer Bars

The other night I was thinking about all the flavors that I like and decided to combine them into one dessert.  First there is a fudgy layer of brownie, then a decadent layer of cheesecake, and to top it off...cookie dough frosting (there's no egg in the frosting so it's perfectly safe to eat.)  It's so rich that you only need a little piece to satisfy the sweet tooth!

Ingredients are as follows:

brownie layer:
1/2 C butter
3/4 C sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 C cocoa powder
1/2 C flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder 

cheesecake layer:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
1/3 C sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. flour

cookie dough frosting:
1/2 C butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 C powdered sugar
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 C flour
1/4 C cool whip
1 C mini chocolate chips 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease an 8" x 8" pan.

Over low heat, melt butter in a pan.

Remove from heat; stir in the sugar, beaten eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix until combined.

 Pour into prepared pan and set aside.

For the cheesecake layer, cream together the cream cheese and butter.

Add the sugar, egg, vanilla and flour; mix until creamy.

Evenly spread on top of the brownie layer.

Bake for 28-30 minutes; until the edges get a little brown.  Allow to cool.

For the frosting, cream together the butter and cream cheese.

Mix in the powdered sugar, brown sugar, pure vanilla and flour.

Fold in the cool whip and chocolate chips.

Once the brownie/cheesecake layer is cool, spread the frosting on.

Place in the fridge for about two hours to set up.  Slice, serve and enjoy!
