Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookie Bars Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a 9×13 baking pan or jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Let the parchment paper hang over the sides of the pan for easy removal of your cookie bar. Lightly spray the top of the parchment paper as well.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat for a couple minutes. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and 1/4 cup of macadamia nuts. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients to the butter mixture until well incorporated and a soft, slightly crumbling dough forms. 
  3. Spread and press the dough into the pan. Wetting your fingers before pressing the dough helps prevent your fingers from sticking to the dough. Prick all over the dough with a fork. Then place dough in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, just until a little golden on top. Cookie should not be hard and crunchy, instead, soft and slightly chewy. Once done, set aside to cool.
  4. Now to top the cookie bar.
  5. Put chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl and drizzle over a teaspoon of oil. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for about a minute, however, 30 seconds at a time to stir in between and ensure the chocolate doesn’t burn. After a minute, stir vigorously to finish melting the chips using the heat from the other chips and heat of the bowl. Next, blend in cream cheese until very well incorporated. Spread the chocolate cream cheese over the cooled cookie bar. Then sprinkle toffee bits and remaining 1/4 cup of macadamias over the chocolate cream cheese topping. Cut into squares and serve.
