- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
- 1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
- Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C) and line a 9×13-inch (23×33 cm) baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well combined. Press this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan to form the crust.
- In another bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until the mixture is creamy and well combined.
- Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or using a double boiler, then fold them into the cream cheese mixture.
- Pour the chocolate cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crust, spreading it evenly.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or until the cheesecake is set and slightly firm to the touch.
- Allow the bars to cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until chilled and set.
- Once chilled, spread the cherry pie filling evenly over the chocolate cheesecake layer.
- Cut into squares, serve, and enjoy!
