Using an offset spatula, press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, cover and refrigerate while preparing the filling.
Filling & Topping:
Add the cream cheese, peanut butter, yogurt and sugar into the bowl of the food processor and process until smooth and combined.

Run a knife around the edges of the mixture to loosen, use the foil handles to lift it out and cut into 12 bars and serve chilled
