There’s truth in the saying that the way to a person’s heart is through his stomach. Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars are the perfect way to make your valentine fall in love with you all over again.
Valentine’s Day – the perfect opportunity to go the extra mile and show your friends and family how much you care. Who doesn’t love it when someone they love puts a little time into preparing something special?
Cheesecake is a favorite dessert in our house, but a whole cheesecake can be a bit much for our family of four. Making cheesecake in bar form takes care of that problem in a hurry, and you can’t help but feel special when one of these gorgeous Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars is placed in front of you.
The secret to making really great cheesecake? Room temperature cream cheese. Start with that, and you will be on your way to the silkiest cheesecake bars ever. Promise. Another tip? Take your time and beat the cream cheese until it’s light and fluffy. I beat mine in my stand mixer for a full 5 minutes. No cheating. Your patience needed is rewarded with smooth, silky cheesecake bars every single time.
White chocolate is a perfect complement to the chocolate graham cracker crust and gives the cheesecake filling a hint of chocolate without overdoing it. The fresh raspberry puree brightens the flavors and adds the perfect swirls of color to make a dessert that is sure to impress even the toughest critic.
And while these Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars are the perfect dessert for your Valentine dinner, they’re also great any time. Who wants to save such a delicious sweet treat for only once a year? Not me, that’s for sure.
