24 cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies, finely chopped (2 cups)
3 T. butter
1 c. sugar
2-8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1-16 oz. package Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics-Mascarpone
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sour cream
1 square semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Place chopped cookies in a 1 quart bowl. Microwave butter until melted, add to crushed cookies and mix well. Press crumb mixture in a 15 x 10 x 1 pan (jelly roll pan.)
In a 2 quart bowl beat cream cheese, mascarpone, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in sour cream until well blended. Place batter in a small bowl. Stir in melted chocolate; set aside. Pour remaining batter over crust, carefully spreading to edges of pan. Place chocolate mixture in a decorator bag fitted with a tip. Pipe chocolate batter in 5 lengthwise stripes equal distance apart on top of batter. Take a knife and cut crosswise through chocolate several times for marble effect.
Bake 20 minutes or until set. Cool bars to room temperature and cut into squares. Refrigerate.
