    Chocolate-Covered Cheesecake Bites

    Servings: 30-40 bites


    10 graham crackers

    1¼ cup powdered sugar

    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    8 tablespoons butter, melted

    16 ounces cream cheese, softened

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    3 cups chocolate chips


    1. Add the graham crackers to a ziploc bag and crush until finely ground.

    In a large bowl, add the crushed graham crackers, ¼ cup powdered sugar, salt, and melted butter, stirring until the mixture is the texture of wet sand.
