Root Beer Float No Bake Cheesecake Bars

I had pinned this recipe thinking I had root beer extract.  I found out that I did not have any, but quickly put it on my grocery list.  I am glad I did.  It is a tasty dessert.  The original recipe showed a picture with each piece topped with a cherry.  My pantry had no cherries, but that didn't hinder the taste!
Root Beer Float No Bake Cheesecake Bars

9 graham crackers Beth used 1 1/2 c crumbs
2 T sugar
6 T butter, melted
3 8 oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
8 oz cool whip
1 T vanilla extract
1 1/2 T root beer concentrate

Crush 9 sheets of graham crackers with 2 TBSPs granulated sugar, and mix with melted butter.
Press into the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch pan.

Beat together the sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract. Mix in the cool whip. Remove 1/2 cup of the mixture. Mix in the root beer extract.

Gently spread the mixture (minus the 1/2 cup) over the graham cracker crust. Then carefully swirl the 1/2 cup of the mixture into the top.
Refrigerate until firm.  Cut and serve.
