These are awesome!! I didn't have a package of cookie dough, so I made Recipe #17113 which was the perfect amount. The only thing we did wrong was that we couldn't wait to cut them until the cheesecake part / melted chocolate chips had firmed. Next time I'll make them when no one else is around so they have a chance to firm before cutting. Thanks for posting this, I'll definitely be making again.

LOVED this! I also used a choc chip cookie recipe for the dough. Set up in freezer so it could be eaten sooner. Awesome.

I brought this to a dinner party and everyone raved over it!. It was still warm and it did not cut up and serve like a cookie bar, more like a dessert you eat with a fork, but man was it delicious!
