Decadent Chocolate Bars

I enter an annual Holiday Cookie Contest in Dallas, Texas. I've been a finalist many times and I won Second Place in the Easy Category last year. It's a very fun event. Judges are local chefs and come from well known Bakeries and Restaurants.

Decadent Chocolate Bars

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 9" X 9" Square Baking Pan, line with Foil extending over all 4 sides by 2". Sprayed with a Vegetable Cooking Spray.

18 - 20 Oreo Cookies, crushed to make 1 3/4 C.
4 TBS Butter, melted
1 oz. of Semi Sweet Chocolate, melted
8 oz. of Semi Sweet Chocolate, chopped
3/4 C Heavy Cream
3 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 TBS Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1/2 C Miniature Chocolate Chips

In a Large Mixing Bowl:
Crushed Oreos
Melted Chocolate
Mix well with a Blending Fork.
Press into the Pan to create a Crust.
Refrigerate while making the Filling.

In a Small Glass Bowl:
Chopped Chocolate
Heavy Cream
Heat in a Microwave until melted and creamy smooth.
Stir after 1 minute.

In a Medium Bowl with a Hand Mixer:
Cream Cheese
Beat until well combined.

Gradually Add:
Melted Chocolate
Beat until well combined.
Spread evenly over the Crust.
Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
Sprinkle evenly with Chocolate Chips.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Remove the Bars using the Foil edges.
Transfer to a Flat Surface.
Remove the Foil and Cut into Squares.

Peace in the Kitchen!
