Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Updated on June 5, 2014

Rich, creamy and so delicious are just a few ways I like to describe these yummy bars. Sometimes when I have company over, I make two desserts so I have a variety, but with this dessert, you only need one. When you combine cheesecake with smooth caramel in a graham cracker crust, you have a dessert bar that is truly decadent.

Caramel Cheesecake Bars are a perfect dessert for serving around the holidays, but they are so good that you will want to make them year round. A special treat to have with a cup of hot brewed tea or coffee.
