What Are Cheesecake Bars?

Cheesecake bars are similar to a slice of cheesecake but they’re made in the shape of a bar so that you can grab them and enjoy them on the go, no fork or spoon required. If you love the idea of being able to grab a bar and enjoy a sweet dessert while on the move, you’ll enjoy preparing these bars instead of making a traditional cheesecake.

Your Cheesecake Bar Essentials – What You’ll Need

Before you can get started, you’ll need to have some essential ingredients for the crust and cheesecake filling, such as:

  • Vanilla Wafer Crumbs – Crush your vanilla wafers or put them in a food processor to create crumbs with them.
  • Unsalted Butter – Melt your butter down before combining it with the wafers to create a sweet, tasty crust.
  • Cream Cheese – Leave your cream cheese at room temperature before mixing it with sugar and other ingredients.
  • Marshmallow Fluff – Give your cheesecake bars an added touch of sweet flavor with better texture using fluff.
  • Blueberries – Combine your cream cheese mixture with some blueberries to enhance the taste.

Other ingredients needed include granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. You can also prepare an optional glaze for these Blueberry Cheesecake Bars by combining powdered sugar with milk and a bit of lemon juice.

Why do I need to leave the cream cheese out before mixing it?

Leaving your cream cheese to reach room temperature is the best way to make it easier to mix and combine with your other ingredients. If it’s solid and super cold, it’s harder to mix to perfection when combining it with your eggs, sugar, and more.

What kind of cream cheese should I use?

Use any brand of full-fat cream cheese. Philadelphia Cream Cheese is my favorite. Of course, you can use generic cream cheese if that is what you have at home and like to use.

Should I add the glaze on top?

Although it’s an option, that slightly sweet lemony glaze that you can add on your Blueberry Cheesecake Bars really takes them to the next level and makes them even more enjoyable. I’d highly recommend preparing it and adding it on top!

Make the perfect snack for any occasion with this recipe for cheesecake bars with fresh or frozen blueberries. They’re sweet, creamy, and taste amazing, making them the perfect dessert to serve to loved ones. Best of all, there is no fork or spoon required to enjoy this dessert!
