Happy Monday, my friends! Do you know what’s the best way to start a Monday? With a BIG giveaway! Today I’m sharing a White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Bars recipe as part of a progressive dinner party and giveaway. Its no secret that I love cheesecake. I’ve made Mini Snicker’s Cheesecakes, Caramel Apple Cheesecakes, Butterfinger Cheesecakes, and now strawberry cheesecake bars.
White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Bars
For the filling:
(2) 8 oz packages of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted and cooled
1 cup strawberry jam
For the crust:
1 cup graham crackers
3-4 tsp butter
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, lightly spray with cooking spray.
Crush one cup of graham crackers in a food processor. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon together. Mix with melted butter and press mixture onto pan. Bake for 5 minutes and allow crust to cool.
Spread strawberry jam evenly onto crust.
For the filling mix together cream cheese, sugar, and sour cream. Add in melted white chocolate. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until mixture is well combined. Pour into pan and bake for 40-50 minutes. Allow cheesecake to cool completely (I like to store mine in the refrigerator overnight).
Now lets talk about this progressive dinner, shall we?
