Rolo Cheesecake Bars

I made these last Friday night for dinner party with some of our closest friends. Our sweet, smart, and gorgeous friend Keri just graduated from Nurse Anesthetist school and we had quite a celebration! They were a huge success with her and everyone else that tried them!   
This recipe is super easy. I mean, seriously...the hardest part is unwrapping all of the Rolos!  
These cheesecake bars are decadent, addicting, and insanely delicious. They are made with a chocolate brownie crust and a cheesecake layer sweetened with caramel sauce and stuffed with chopped up Rolos. 
Congrats Keri! We love you so much and are so proud of you!
