Chocolate Cheesecake Squares

A couple weekends ago, one of my co-workers had a potluck at her house. I was quick to offer to make dessert and chose this recipe right away. I had previously tried to make this recipe the weekend before but had a few mishaps (including using the wrong appliance to mix and rushing too much!). Thankfully, the recipe turned out for the potluck (not so great for my company the weekend before who had no dessert!).

This recipe comes from the bf’s mom. She is a great cook and baker and I have been meaning to make this recipe since having them at her house. It combines my love for squares and cheesecake.
