Ingredients

24 cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies, finely chopped (2 cups)
3 Tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
2-8oz packages cream cheese, softened
1-16oz package Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics-Mascarpone
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 square semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

Directions

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 ½” 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 ¾ of 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.
