I made these recently, and they disappeared fast! The entire family loved them, because they were delicious. These make a great dessert for anytime of the year, and are especially good for Valentine’s Day. Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, and these bars are a nice way to enjoy the taste of cheesecake.
