Chocolate Streusel Bars

I do not remember where I got this recipe, but I do remember the first time I made them! I was like 10 or 12 years old and made them for a potluck dinner to welcome our new pastor. The pastor's wife was SO impressed with them and wanted to know who made them! She couldn't believe it was a kid!!!! Just goes to show anyone can just have to want to do it!

Chocoalte Streusel Bars

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
