OMG pure heaven! Now I am making vegetable soup to make up for all the calories I ate…hahahaha
I can’t say I’d blame you! I’m a big fan of vegetable soup too!
Never heard of this. A quite creative idea.
They are so good! Thanks!
Love this! Bars make it so much easier for a party!

I love anything cheesecake! I love the layers!
Give it a try Robin I couldn’t stop eating it!
That’s what I’m afraid of…. 😀 I’ll make it for an upcoming get-together.
Perfect I should have done that too! lol
Yum, yum, yum! 😋
Thank you Erica!
You food delicious, your recipes easy, yum
Thank you Amorina!
Looks delicious, I think I’ll give this one a try. Hey – I went to a friends for dinner the other night and was served that ‘crack’ slice you posted recently. It was sprinkled with dried raspberries and chopped pastachio nuts. I had three pieces, definitely addictive!
Isn’t it Chris! I just love that stuff! Let me know how you like this one I thought it was SO GOOD too!
Thanks Bernice they really were amazing…..and gone! lol
Thank you Tierney!
Thank you it was really, really good!
Oh my goodness, deliciousness! My husband doesn’t eat cream cheese (or sour cream or cottage cheese or…), so I haven’t made a cheesecake in a decade because I really can’t (ok, shouldn’t) eat an entire cheesecake by myself. Somehow, this seems more reasonable size-wise.
That is what I loved about this recipe. Made in an 8 x 8 pan and they are really small. You could eat half the pan to equal a large piece of cheesecake. Go ahead and treat yourself!
Puttin’ it on the grocery list now!
Enjoy I wish I had some now. Making a frozen peanut butter pie tomorrow for my 3 grandkids coming Saturday.
Cheesecake bars – you are asuming people have already forsaken their New Year’s resolutions. 🙂
Hahahaha you are so right!
Mmmmm, looks yummy and easy. Pinning this one.
The only thing wrong with this was that I didn’t double the recipe…hahahaha Thanks Carla!
I just bought some cream cheese, so I guess I will have some desserts to eat for the next few days. (I am alone, hopefully they will last a few days).
Keep it in the refrigerator it will definitely last. Although they didn’t here I couldn’t stay out of them….lol
I know I won’t be able to either.
