Raspberry Peppermint Cheesecake Bars

If there’s one thing I LOVE it’s a good cookie/bar swap during the Christmas season. This year I wanted to whip up some kind of Cheesecake bar because it’s Brad’s favourite and if I’m honest I was looking to make his day. I chose to make Raspberry Peppermint Cheesecake bars because they’re super simple!!

This is a recipe that will work EVERY.SINGLE.TIME which makes life SO much easier. You can top with your choice of fruit, pie filling, crushed candy cane or whatever floats your boat. Brad prefers his cheesecake naked so that’s what I went with this time.
