When it comes to desserts, I have a lot of weaknesses. Chocolate, cheesecake, cookies, cupcakes, buttercream icing…excuse me while I grab a napkin for my drool! So what can a girl do when she craves multiple desserts at the same time? Choose just one favorite? Nope! How about combine three favorites into one dessert! These Rolo Cheesecake Cookie Bars combine a delicious cookie base, topped with a cheesecake topping plus chocolate & caramel Rolos baked in each layer. Is your tummy growling yet? Ya, mine too! Let’s hop on over to the recipe.

Rolo Cheesecake Cookie Bars:

For this recipe you can use either full size Rolos or the mini ones. I had a few of both sizes at home so I mixed both regulars and minis into the recipe.
