No-Bake Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Prep Time 20 minutes
Freeze Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings 12

Ingredients

For crust:

  • 14 graham crackers
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt

For filling:

  • 2 cups cream cheese
  • ¾ cup confectioners sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • cup cranberry strawberry sauce

Notes

If you do not want to use strawberry cranberry sauce, make a strawberry swirl sauce by cooking pureed strawberries and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until the strawberries break down and the mixture thickens. Let cool before adding it to the top of the bars to swirl.

Instructions

  • Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Remove cream cheese from the refrigerator and let soften for about 10 minutes.
  • Using a food processor or blender, pulse the graham crackers into fine crumbs.
  • In a large bowl, add cracker crumbs, melted butter, granulated sugar, and salt. Stir well until all ingredients are combined.
  • Pour the crust mixture into the baking dish. Using your hands, press it down so it is evenly spread. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  • While the crust is freezing, make the filling. First, use an electric mixer or hand mixer to beat the cream cheese until it is smooth.
  • Add confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, salt, and lemon juice and stir well until it is a smooth consistency.
  • Remove the crust from the freezer and spread the cheesecake filling on top.
  • Stir cranberry strawberry sauce until it is a smooth consistency. Dollop cranberry strawberry sauce on top and use a skewer to make swirls.
  • Freeze the bars for at least two hours. After they are frozen, transfer them onto a cutting board. Remove the parchment paper and slice into bars.
  • Serve right away or store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
