I’ve been keeping a little secret from you and it’s these Praline Cheesecake Bars.

Remember a little sporting event called the Super Bowl?

This was our dessert for the big game. And yes, it is now nearing the end of May. It’s about time I shared these cheesecake bars. Because I know you need a little cheesecake in your life.

Praline Cheesecake Bars couldn’t be any easier. They’ve got a buttery, shortbread crust that is really good enough just to eat on its own.  But if you like cheesecake as much as I do, simply blend cream cheese and two eggs together. Then fold in some candy toffee bits.

Swirl the cheesecake batter with some caramel topping. You know…the kind that is fantastically delicious drizzled over a scoop of ice cream. Swirl the caramel into the batter and bake.

If you’re crazy like we are, serve these Praline Cheesecake Bars with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or just drench them in more caramel topping.

Buttery crust, rich toffee, sweet caramel, creamy cheesecake…. basically a dream. 🙂

I couldn’t get these out of my head after seeing them pop up on my Instagram and they did not disappoint! They were so yummy! I couldn’t find toffee pieces so I threw some Heath bars into the food processor and it worked quite well. Thanks for the yummy treat!
