Double Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Bars are a super decadent Thanksgiving or holiday dessert! They have an easy shortbread crust, a luxurious chocolate cheesecake, a layer of dark chocolate chips, and a pecan pie topping! Drizzle it with more chocolate and caramel and you have one delicious dessert.
Now that the holiday season is upon us, I am full-on back into baking mode. I didn’t bake much over the summer, but as soon as the air got a chill in it, I couldn’t tame the itch to turn the oven on.
While I have three dessert recipes for you for Thanksgiving (my Turtle Pumpkin Cheesecake and another one I’ll be posting later this week!), today we’re talking Double Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Bars.
I don’t think it’s a secret that these Double Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Bars are decadent and beyond delicious. I mean, just look at these photos. Ho-ly YUM.
I’ve made a similar recipe to these for years and years and years. In fact, I think it was one of the first recipes I’ve posted on this blog. This year I jazzed them up a little bit with more chocolate (I mean, why not!), a different crust, and a drizzle of caramel on top. Admittedly, the caramel sauce is optional but why the heck wouldn’t you?
I think these Double Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Bars would be so great for a Friendsgiving, a Thanksgiving dessert tray (switch things up on a table of pies!), or for any sort of holiday dessert.
Personally, we ate them with a couple of other friends standing over the counter with forks each having “just one more bite”. Whatever works, y’know?!
