This?! Ohhhhh, this. This is possibly the easiest cheesecake-bars-dessert of ever. Also known as the dessert that I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. (on the treadmill) Just to be the woman who walked a thousand miles just to eat the cheesecake that I truly adoooooore.  

Oh hey! Well Hi there! What’s going on, pals?

I’m sort of interrupting our regularly scheduled program for something pretty and something creamy. You with me?!
Alllrighty then! (<— I always think of Jim Carrey when I say that).
…Ace Ventura? Pet Detective?? You DO know what I’m talking about, right?

Soooo. Today is a fun day! Today we are talking dessert! I thought this would be a good day for such a discussion since lovah’s day is quickly approaching and all.

Are you expecting chocolates, jewelry, or a tropical vacay?!?
To be honest, I am hoping for a new car. I know that’s too much to ask for on this “holiday”, but Santa forgot to bring it to me, so now my money is on Cupid. Let’s see if that arrow can really work it.

Also? There’s just something about chocolate and cheesecake and berries. It’s just straight up good. Right?

By the way, this is just another one of my cop-out cheesecake recipes. I kind of don’t like making those baked cheesecakes, you know? AND I certainly hate pulling it out of the oven only to find a cracked crust. Ew. You don’t even have to taste it to know that you failed it. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

For that reason, mixing cream cheese and white chocolate is kind of the next best thing!
I’m pretty sure it’s not the best thing, but let’s just go with that, m’kay?

These cheesecake bars are super easy, amazing, too, and yes – almost no-bake. Gotta bake the crust. BUT that’s all! The rest is no bake. Just layer after delicious layer of no-bake goodies.
