Classic cheesecake bars become a touch more elegant with a white chocolate filling. A layer of raspberry preserves and drizzle of white chocolate take them over the top.

It tastes good as hell and really simple to make. The only thing is that mine sunk in and was way too wet. Read More

I made these for a work bake off last week and won first place! Everyone loved the fruit topping - it made a big difference among all the other chocolate desserts. Very easy to make and delicious. I recommend warming the preserves a bit before spreading them to make it easier to spread -- and definitely letting the cheesecake cool enough before doing that. Read More

Wish I would have read the reviews before I baked it. I STRONGLY recommend warming up the preserves.. Mine looked clumpy and ugly on top of the cheesecake straight out of the jar at room temperature. The taste however was amazing the presentation just didn't look so pretty! Had been craving cheesecake and this was so easy! Read More

I followed the instructions and came up with a yummy mess. I then modified the recipe by making mini cupcakes of this recipe. I also plopped a mini white chocolate chip on top rather than attempting to drizzle. Read More

I love this recipe. the more you beat the cream cheese the lighter it is. I like cheesecake a little more on the dense side. don't beat it as much if you like it more dense. the raspberry preserves really make it!!!! Read More

Used this recipe for my first attempt at cheesecake and this came out better than expected. Everyone that tasted it loved it and I even got some requests to make this again for others as well. Recipe is very easy to follow. I did make one change. I used strawberry preserves instead of raspberry and used more than called for to ensure that it covered the entire pan. I also heated the preserves a bit to make for easier spreading as someone else suggested. Read More

This was a big hit! I've made cheesecake before but this was simple. I did read the other reviews before starting and warming the preserves was a great idea. I also melted my white chocolate for drizzling in a disposable piping bag started with 30sec increments until it was melted. Then I mix it around in the bag and cut a very small tip off to drizzle. The only thing I did different was changing the servings to 18 and using a 13x9 glass dish. Read More

I would recommend adding the top white chocolate layer after cutting the cheesecake bars otherwise it cracks and doesn't look as nice as it could... But it sure is yummy! Read More
