Do you have a husband with a sweet tooth? Do you have a sweet tooth? My hubby has a very large sweet tooth (teeth), one that prohibits too much veggies to go with it. It really works out well in our house as I love to bake and making side dishes isn't my specialty, though I am working on it!
Making recipes with cream cheese in it is almost a standard at our house. He enjoys just about anything with cream cheese from soups, to dips, to desserts. When I decided to make these mint chocolate chip cream cheese bars, I knew they would be a hit for two reasons: cheesecake and mint. I enjoy the chocolate in the bars.
