This is a sophisticated taste of your childhood! The three flavors in this wonderful bar work exquisitely together. The Oreo's give it a nice crunch, the brownies add in a delectable moistness, and the cheesecakes soft sophistication is a mixture that your mouth just won't be able to get enough of!
