Toffee Cheesecake Squares

Toffee Cheesecake Squares

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 6 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 6 Tbs. butter, melted
  • 2 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 24 fun-size Health Toffee Bars, coarsely chopped
  • 10 fun size Heath Bars, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking pan very well.

In a medium-bowl, whisk together the flour, pecans and brown sugar. Stir in the butter and mix until all the dry ingredients are moistened and a crumbly dough forms. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned.

In another medium-bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla until combined. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the coarsely-chopped candy. Pour into the baked crust. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the finely chopped candy over the top.

Cool completely. Cut into 48 to 64 squares depending on the size you would like to serve. Refrigerate until serving.

Note: You can use Butterfinger Bars for a Peanut Butter Crunch Bar

You're going to love these squares through out the year.  Come back soon!
