I wish there was a way for you to smell these chocolate cheesecake bars. The smell is intoxicating. Chilly peppermint mixed with the warm smell of melted chocolate. Made with Hershey’s candy cane chocolate bars and Coffee Matte peppermint mocha coffee creamer, these cheesecake bars are divine!
Christmas is not the same without candy cane. I may not eat candy cane by themselves but boy, i heart them in desserts. I was looking forward to Christmas baking just so I can make a candy cane cheesecake. A silky smooth cheesecake with peppermint flavors will put a smile on my face. A silky smooth cheesecake with swirls of candy cane white chocolate will make my heart skip a beat!
It was just an ordinary trip to the local grocery store when I saw the limited edition of the Hershey’s candy cane chocolate bars. I knew right then there was no way I could leave the store using stocking up on these chocolate bars. You know I have a serious problem with limited edition chocolate. It’s the adrenaline rushing knowing I only have a short period of time to enjoy them before they are gone for a couple of month or even worse, for good #heartbroken
After a couple of taste tests on the candy cane chocolate bars recipes ideas I knew I wanted to make a show-stopping dessert with them. Brownies cake first to mind, then a cake but a simple cheesecake sounded way better.
These cheesecake bars are fairly easy to make. Just like other cheesecake recipes, you start by mixing graham cracker crumbs with butter and press it evenly on the bottom of the pan. Because I made my cheesecake in a square pan instead of a round one, I didn’t make a crust on the sides, just on the bottom.
The cheesecake filling is make with cream cheese, sugar, eggs, peppermint mocha coffee creamer and chopped candy cane chocolate. Mix and pour over the crust. As simple as that. 2 ingredients for the crust and 5 ingredients for the filling. Doesn’t that sound like the easiest chocolate cheesecake ever?
