These Funfetti Oreo Cheesecake Bars prove that cheesecake CAN be fun! I’m pretty much the biggest cheesecake fan EVER and I’m so excited to be sharing these super yummy bars with you! These bites of creamy bliss are made with Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese – exactly how it should be!
Everything is better with sprinkles. Agreed? This holds true especially with cheesecake. Cheesecake can be so serious. It’s all sophisticated and rich and it’s something I am kind of in love with.
Cheesecake has looong been my favorite dessert. So rich. So decadent. So creamy. Pretty much all things amazing. But here’s a little secret…cheesecake can be fun! Like funfetti and OREO type fun!
These little bites are pure bliss! Creamy cheesecake is broken up by the crunchy Oreos (Birthday Cake Oreos – my new fave) and is studded throughout with bright, colorful sprinkles. I mean, really. What birthday cake could come close to this???
While I am totally down with making a classic cheesecake, I have to say bars are so much easier and LOTS more fun. Bars are easier to serve which makes you (and me) happy. Plus, you can totally make them as big or little as you like. I cut mine up into little bite-sized pieces which is great for parties and little kids.
And mommies. Who have no self-control.
