Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake Bars

Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake Bars Recipe l

Do you ever have a recipe that sticks in your mind for a long time just waiting to be made? I had seen strawberry cheesecake with chocolate ganache at a store awhile back and just knew that I had to make it at home.

Since I don’t make cheesecake very often, it was awhile before I actually set out to recreate it.

I wish I had made it sooner, because these strawberry chocolate ganache cheesecake bars were everything I hoped they’d be!

Did you know that today is National Cheesecake Day? Even more reason to make these strawberry chocolate ganache cheesecake bars. I couldn’t let a day like this pass by! (Be sure to check out the list below for more great ways to celebrate.)

Since I’ve been all about no bake recipes lately, I decided to take the no bake cheesecake route. Because they are no bake, these bars come together quickly and you don’t have to worry about whether or not they’re done (or am I the only one who struggles knowing when cheesecake is done?!).

Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake Bars Recipe l

A simple graham crust is topped with a rich, creamy layer of chocolate ganache. Since the theme of these bars is easy, I just used chocolate chips and heavy cream to create this velvety ganache.

Cream cheese, whipped topping, and fresh strawberries make up the sweet cheesecake layer, while a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips tops it off.

If the fact that it’s National Cheesecake Day isn’t reason enough to make these cheesecake bars, the rich chocolate ganache and sweet strawberry cheesecake should be!

That topping! It's so light and fluffy and perfectly pink. And putting the ganache below it?! Good move. I would have tried putting it on top and would have made a mess.

Oh yes, I totally know what you mean about not knowing when the cheesecake is completely done. That's the last thing you want - to cut into it, and to be welcomed by soup!! Which is why I just stuck with a cocktail for Cheesecake Day :) PINNING!

I have a continuous list of recipe ideas. It got to the point where I can no longer keep up with the production part of the list. These bars look fantastic. Who doesn't love a little ganache?
