Rocky Road Cheesecake bars

These bars are deli­cious X 10! The cheese­cake layer is an unex­pected addi­tion to Rocky Road bars, but it’s what takes them over the top.  They are pretty rich, so I’d cut them small. About an inch and a half square is plenty. Keep them in the refrigerator.

I’m think­ing they’d be really yummy blended into an ice cream shake–sprinkle in a lit­tle malt pow­der and YUM!!
