Cheesecake has long been one of my very favorite desserts. That rich and creamy filling atop a buttery graham cracker crust. Mmm, mmm good. Add caramel and toffee into the mix and we’ve definitely entered into the realm of irresistible. Let’s be honest – caramel sauce can give most any dessert an instant upgrade. Ben doesn’t have nearly the sweet tooth that I do, but he does have a weakness for toffee and for caramel. Combining the two in a single dessert probably had him wondering why I might be trying to butter him up.
This is a time when cheesecake bars are superior to a traditional cheesecake, because they make portion control so much easier to manage. One square has just enough to satisfy without feeling guilty. Even better, bars are so much easier to share! Pass them off to family, friends, neighbors… I’d be willing to bet that if you do decide to share, you’ll get requests for the recipe.
