Marbled Cheesecake Hearts


It's my birthday and I am 58 years old. It sounds very old, but it doesn't feel old!! I've decided to go back to posting recipes daily so that eventually i can make a cookbook of my favorites for myself, family and friends.

Marbled Cheesecake Hearts

• 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
• 3 large eggs
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 2 (1 oz.) squares unsweetened chocolate
Instructions
• HEAT oven to 300°F. Line 13 x 9-inch baking pan with heavy foil; set aside. Combine cookie crumbs and butter in small bowl; press firmly into bottom of prepared pan.
