Caramel Heath Ricotta Cheesecake Bars #SummerDessertWeek

Some of the ingredients/items in today's post are courtesy of our sponsors for #summerdessertweek, as usual, all opinions are my own.

I love cheesecake and when I want to make a simple version for a large group of people, I have found that no bake cheesecake bars are the best option. These are a combination of both. Baked crust and no bake for the filling.  Still super simple and easy to whip up. 

 I have tried out a multitude of versions over the years and I think this may be my favorite so far. I love the combo of caramel and Heath in basically any recipe and this one ended up being no exception. For this particular recipe, I decided to mix ricotta and cream cheese for a sweeter and richer texture. My husband loves ricotta and while I dig it in savory dishes, I am not the biggest fan of it in sweet dishes (ie: cannolis) but this creation may have finally changed my mind. The added creaminess of the cream cheese lessened the grainy texture that I don't particularly usually care for in ricotta based desserts.  I think this Caramel Heath Cheesecake Bar recipe may end up being a regular contender on my dessert menu. 

For the crust on these bars, I did a somewhat 'cheat" I bought chocolate chip cookie dough and used that vs making my own dough but it was just as good. I have made a few different versions changing the crust each time. I have used sugar cookie dough and oatmeal butterscotch. All of them have been scrumptious so far. Feel free to make whatever version you prefer. 

Caramel Heath Ricotta Cheesecake Bars

10-12 oz chocolate chip cookie dough
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz ricotta
1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Sugar
1 tsp Adams Best Vanilla Extract
1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream 

Place foil in bottom of 9x9 pan. Fill the pan with the cookie dough, use your fingers to spread the dough out and use your palms to flatten it down, making sure the bottom of pan is covered. Bake on 350 for about 20-22 minutes edges begin to brown. Center may appear undercooked. Chill the in fridge for about 30 minutes. 

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, ricotta, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Start your mixer on low and once all combined increase speed and mix for about 2 minutes to make sure mixture is smooth. I usually do a spoon taste at this point to make sure I am happy with the sugar amount and don't need to add any more. Once you are satisfied with taste, add in the whipping cream and beat on high for another 2-4 minutes until it has more of a mousse/thick cheesecake mixture. 

Pour over chilled chocolate chip cookie dough crust and place in fridge for at least two hours. 

Before serving, sprinkle the top with crushed heath bar pieces and drizzle the top with a caramel sauce. I have used a few versions and I have noticed that the more expensive ice cream sauces hold up better and do not water the cheesecake down after it settles. You can get a good quality jar for about $3.49. Or you can always make your own!

Cut into bars and enjoy. I will also say that these *may be* even better at midnight two days later after you have frozen them. But only maybe;) 

 I used a 9x9 pan and ended up using about 10 oz of cookie dough. I like the dough to be a little crispy and thin so once the cheesecake mixture settles, it becomes very chewy but still with a good texture and bite!
