Cheesecake and cranberries combined makes a fabulous dessert! The tart flavor of cranberries paired with the sweet cream cheese, white chocolate chips and oats is very crumbly-berry delicious!
I wanted to make a cheesecake bar with my favorite holiday cranberries for some added tartness. The white chocolate chips adds a nice crunch in every bite. They turned out really good. You can make these bars one day ahead of time or freeze them until ready to serve. Cheesecake cranberry bars are festive enough for any holiday season. Try them!
Tip: We recommend when baking is done, allow to cool completely and refrigerate over night before cutting into bars. These bars are easier to cut after they have been chilled.
