This recipe is a copycat version of the Kraft Philadelphia Cheesecake Bars that they used to make when I was a kid. They. Were. Bomb. And lucky for you and me, so is this copycat recipe 🙂 I know for a fact that I will never go back to regular cheesecake – this is the way to go!
Strawberry Cheesecake Bars Broken Down
Starting at the base of these delicious bars is a toasty, golden graham cracker crust. On top is a rich and creamy cheesecake that is smooth and will absolutely melt in your mouth. In the very center of each bar in a little hallowed out strip, is a strawberry compote made with fresh strawberries of course. Lastly, a white chocolate drizzle to tie everything together. Bottom line – these Strawberry Cheesecake Bars are to die for.
Assembling The Strawberry Cheesecake Bars
Once the cheesecake has been baked and cooled, cut them into even bars then use a spoon to carve out a strip down the center of each one for the strawberry compote to go. Start by carving out a small amount of cheesecake then work your way down to carve enough out to be able to place the strawberry filling in. You don’t want to scrape all the way down to the crust – just enough for the strawberry center to sit nicely in each bar.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! As always, please share your results with me on social media by tagging me @thesqueakymixer so I can see all of your beautiful creations 🙂Yum
