Dark Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

I admit, I'm a chocoholic. And a cheesecake lover. What's greater than the combination of the two? When they're in bar form!

1½ cups flour
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened
Cheesecake Topping:
2 cups Hershey's Special Dark morsels
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
½ cup evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan.

For Crust:
Combine flour, brown sugar, and butter in medium bowl; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around edges.

For Cheesecake Topping:
Microwave morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10-20 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in medium mixer bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs. Gradually beat in evaporated milk and melted chocolate. Pour over crust.

Bake at 350F for 25-35 minutes, or until center is set. Cool in pan to room temperature on wire rack; chill until firm.
