Cheesecake Bars

Made these for a party at the boss's house...everyone loved it.

1 pack 14 oz graham crackers crumbs + 4 tbsp sugar plus 1 stick butter melted. Press in two cake pans 12x8. Bake at 350 for 10 mins and cool.
5 packs cream cheese, 1 can condensed milk ,  1 1/2 cups sugar, 5 eggs, lemon zest and or or vanilla. Divide in two and bake over a cookie sheet with water at 350 for 30 mins.

For the topping:
Heat about 3/4 cup sugar till golden brown. Add about 3/4 cup slivered almonds and pour on silpat and flatten. Breat it up into praline crumbs (I used dasto). I had some Cajeta/dulce de leche spread which I drizzled first. Then evenly spread the praline. In a small Ziplock, take chocolate and butter and melt. Drizzle the chocolate in a mesh pattern along with the Cajeta spread.
