  • 6 Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chunk Cookies
    • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 4 tablespoons melted butter
        • 1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
          • 1 cup sugar
            • 1 large egg
              • 1 cup Greek yogurt
                • 1 teaspoon vanilla

                  3. Crumble chocolate chip cookies into a food processor and process until ground into a fine crumb. Some of the chocolate chips will not grind down, that's okay.

                  8. Using a hand blender or mixer, beat together cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
                  9. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in egg. Mix until fully incorporated.
                  10. Mix in Greek yogurt and vanilla extract. Beat until mixture is smooth and combined.
                  11. Pour cheesecake mixture over crust. Sprinkle with mini semi sweet chocolate chips.
                  12. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are set.
                  13. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
