Eggnog recipes spread creamy holiday cheer, as revealed in these cheesecake brownie bars. A buttery crust of vanilla wafers and toasted pecans balances the rich chocolate filling that's flavored with a splash of rum flavoring.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until blended. Press crumb mixture into bottom of a lightly greased 8" or 9" square pan. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Cool.

Step 2

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and rum extract at medium speed with an electric mixer just until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended. Pour 1 1/2 cups cream cheese batter evenly over baked crust.

Step 3

Stir eggnog into remaining batter. Divide batter in half; stir melted white chocolate into 1 portion. Spoon evenly over cream cheese batter. Stir melted semisweet chocolate into remaining batter. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate batter evenly over white chocolate layer; gently swirl batters with a knife.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 30 to 33 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Cut into bars.

I always make this recipe when I go to holiday parties and it's always a hit. I leave out the pecans and just add some extra wafers though. -In response to shellag- Nabisco makes vanilla "Nilla" wafers and they're completely different than the cookies sandwiched with icing.

Does anyone know how many cups of cookie crumbs you need? Where I come from a wafer is a cookie sandwiched with icing.

the recipe was tasty, but it was difficult to mix the melted chocolate into the batter. also, i was not able to taste the eggnog as much as i thought i would.
