These Red, White & Blueberry Pie Bars are so festive and fun any time of year, but especially for Memorial Day and Fourth of July! Similar to kuchen with swirls of cherries and blueberries!

I cannot believe it, but I went swimming for the first time in 10 years yesterday.

What brought on this monumental occasion? The fact that Sacramento hit 100 degrees already.

Meanwhile, I have friends in Minnesota who said it’s 46 and freezing there. So. Wanna trade me, Minneapolites?

A little back story real quick…

In junior high and high school, I used to dye my hair crazy rainbow colors. I had a new color about every month or two and it required severe bleaching of my entire head of hair every single time. Miraculously, my hair never felt damaged or fell out, even though my mom threatened that’d happen. (Still wasn’t worried; I was actually kinda excited for the possibility of wigs).

And because some of these dye jobs cost me (and my mom) quite a pretty penny, I never wanted to ruin my beautiful kaleidoscopic hair by dunking it in chlorine. So I spent summers avoiding the pool completely, because I found that once I waded in the pool without going under, I was more tempted to get my whole head wet, too. And dingy chlorine hair on pretty pastel pinks or vibrant purples was no bueno.

So even though my Grammie lived two doors down from us and had her very own (gorgeous) pool, I stayed away as if it were contaminated and preferred to cool down in an air-conditioned house.

But now that I live in an apartment complex and I have to pay for my own A/C *cries*, I wanted another way to cool down… so I took to the complex pool when no one was in it. It was nothing short of amazing, and I didn’t even go underwater (I’m platinum blonde now and not about to look like I dipped my hair in sewer water, thanks).

And now, if you need me, I’ll be lounging in the shade by the pool (if I’m not physically in the pool) for the rest of summertime. You know, with this attitude, I may actually enjoy the summer now… but don’t quote me yet 🙂

Since summer’s approaching, we’ve gotta start thinking backyard BBQs, pool parties, and the like. And with that (and Memorial Day/Fourth of July coming up), I figured these Red, White, and Blueberry Pie Bars were PERFECT to kick off the unofficial start of summah!

These bars are similar to cherry kuchen, which has a cakier texture than a pie-texture. These bars are a little more on the cakey side, but they’re still moist and chewy and delicious. They’re swirled with cherry and blueberry pie fillings and topped with a sweet lemony glaze.

These Red, White and Blueberry Pie Bars combine the flavors of cherry and blueberry pie in one unique, hand-held bar! Great for feeding a crowd!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • One (21 oz) can cherry pie filling
  • ½ of a 21 oz can blueberry pie filling (see Note below for what to do with the rest!)
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 Tbsp heavy cream or milk
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, and salt until creamy & fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, followed by the extracts. Lastly, beat in the flour. The dough will be VERY sticky.
  3. Spread 3 cups of the dough in the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with the cherry pie filling evenly. Dot the cherry pie surface with the blueberry pie filling and gently swirl together with the back of a spoon. Drop the remaining dough by the teaspoonfuls over the top of the fillings.
  4. Bake for approx. 30-37 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Cool completely in the pan.
  5. For the glaze, mix the confectioners' sugar, heavy cream, and lemon juice together until pourable. Pour over the tops of the bars before cutting into squares.
  6. NOTE: Use the remaining pie filling in the following ways (or eat it with a spoon!): blend into a milkshake (try vanilla ice cream with graham crackers), fold it in with Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream for a mousse, top an ice cream sundae with it, make mini pies with it, or swirl it into homemade ice cream!

Red, White and Blueberry Pie Bars: similar to kuchen, these cake-like pie bars are swirled with cherry and blueberry pie filling and drizzled with a lemony glaze. So easy, feeds a crowd and makes a big batch, and perfect for summertime festivities! Festive, perfect for picnics or BBQs and delicious, these pie bars are sure to win everyone over!

Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars

These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are amazing! Layers of zesty lemon cake mix topped with a gooey fresh raspberry filling! Tastes like summertime in an easy dessert that feeds a crowd! These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are quite fantastic, if you ask me! A zesty lemon base topped with an outrageously gooey raspberry filling… So wonderful for summertime!

Sorry I’ve been MIA as of late! A lot of personal stuff has been going on (nothing unfortunate, thankfully!) and I needed a break after my Salt Lake City trip in which I learned how to make Facebook food videos. It was so helpful and informative, but man, I felt my brain start to slosh around up there after grueling 8-hour days of learning video editing software.

Also, I picked up a new hobby which has taken ALL OF MY TIME. Okay, I guess it was just for a present I made for my Mom’s birthday today (HBD, Mom!!) but it soon became my full-time job and I spent most of my days hunched over it, perfecting every last detail so it’d be perfect for her 50th birthday today. I’ll show ya a pic soon!

ANYWAY, I’m back with a vengeance and ready to spring into summertime recipes, so to speak. First up: these Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars, and boy, are they amazing!

Gooey bars are not new on this blog – I have so many variations and quite honestly, bars are one of my favorite things to make because it’s SO EASY. Line your pan, fill it up, bake, and then lift the finished product out of the pan. Clean-up’s a breeze and everything can be portioned out based on how many you need. Bars are a life-saver!

These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are amazing! Layers of zesty lemon cake mix topped with a gooey fresh raspberry filling! Tastes like summertime in an easy dessert that feeds a crowd! But I wanted a super fun flavor I hadn’t made before, and that’s where this Raspberry Lemonade flavor came into play. Raspberries are so refreshing, and there’s nothing more summery than a tall iced glass of lemonade, so combining the two seemed like the perfect match made in dessert heaven.

These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are amazing! Layers of zesty lemon cake mix topped with a gooey fresh raspberry filling! Tastes like summertime in an easy dessert that feeds a crowd! The filling is made with freeze-dried raspberries, which you can usually find on the nuts/dried fruit aisle at many grocery stores. Instead of making a fresh raspberry puree, which requires straining and cheesecloth and other things I do not have time for, freeze-dried raspberries offer that pure raspberry flavor and that color punch that’s so gorgeous. Combined with other delicious ingredients like confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, eggs, butter, and some lemon juice, it makes for a bright and zippy filling to these summery bars!

And dare I say, they’re perfect for a birthday… or a random Tuesday 🙂

These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are so refreshing and perfect for the upcoming summer months!
Ingredients
  • FOR THE BASE:
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • Zest of one lemon
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (1 oz) box raspberry gelatin
  • 1 (1.25 oz) pkg freeze-dried raspberries, pulverized into a fine dust
  • 1 (16 oz) box confectioners' sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13" rectangular pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil liberally with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, egg, melted butter, and lemon zest together until a soft dough forms. Press the dough evenly into the baking pan and set aside briefly.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, followed by the raspberry gelatin and the freeze-dried raspberry powder. Beat in the confectioners' sugar until well blended, and lastly, beat in the melted butter and lemon juice. Mixture should be smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture evenly over the lemon cake base in the pan and bake for approx. 37-45 minutes or until the center is just about set (if it jiggles slightly, that's okay - the mixture will continue to cook as it cools down). Bring to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares.

These Raspberry Lemonade Gooey Bars are amazing! Layers of zesty lemon cake mix topped with a gooey fresh raspberry filling! Tastes like summertime in an easy dessert that feeds a crowd! I love how fresh the freeze-dried raspberry filling is with a brightness from the lemon. And of course, that magenta color is so gorgeous!

Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars

These Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars combine all the flavors of classic Linzer cookies into unique bars! Sweet almond, juicy raspberry jam and buttery shortbread dough come together in this easy, impressive dessert! These Raspberry Almond Linzer Bars taste just like linzer cookies but made easier in bar form! Don’t like raspberry? Substitute with any flavor of jam!

I know this is a little Christmas in May, but I couldn’t resist. I’m on a bar kick and no one will stop me.

Actually, I’m on a fruit dessert kick and I can’t seem to quit it. First it was Mixed Berry Tiramisu, then these bars, and of course, I have more fruity desserts coming down the pipeline for you guys. I think I just realized I’m severely lacking in the fruit dessert category and thought I’d make up for lost time. You’re welcome.

These bars are technically just a shortbread bar, but they reminded me so much of those gorgeous Linzer cookies you get or make at Christmastime that I just had to post them now.

They start with a buttery shortbread crust: easy and no frills. Freeze part of the dough for the crumbly topping, and press the rest into the bottom of your pan. Sure, these aren’t as intricate and perfect as Linzer cookies traditionally are, but that’s also why I’m called The Domestic Rebel. Duh.

These Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars combine all the flavors of classic Linzer cookies into unique bars! Sweet almond, juicy raspberry jam and buttery shortbread dough come together in this easy, impressive dessert! Next, spread on your jam situation. For these, I used seedless raspberry jam which is an underrated jam flavor in my opinion. These bars would also be fab with strawberry jam, apricot jam, or maybe even blueberry or boysenberry. The options are seriously limited to your store’s jam availability.

These Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars combine all the flavors of classic Linzer cookies into unique bars! Sweet almond, juicy raspberry jam and buttery shortbread dough come together in this easy, impressive dessert! Also top the jam layer with some slivered almonds, which add a delightful buttery crunch as well as that sweet almond flavor. Top with the remaining dough and a few more almonds before baking some more until everything is light golden brown, set, and utterly gorgeous.

You may want to wait a hot minute before cutting these into bars, but once you do, I promise it’ll be worth the wait!

Linzer bars in May. You can thank me later!

  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, and extracts together until creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour until dough comes together. Dough may be a little crumbly, this is okay.
  3. Save ½ cup of the dough and place on some plastic wrap. Wrap it up and freeze for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, press the remainder of the dough into the prepared pan in an even layer. Top with ½ cup of the slivered almonds and the jam, spreading to just about the edges of the dough. Crumble the remaining dough on top and finish topping with the remaining slivered almonds.
  4. Bake for approx. 45-50 minutes or until the top is light golden brown and the center is set. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

These Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars combine all the flavors of classic Linzer cookies into unique bars!

These have a wonderful raspberry flavor and the sweet almond is accentuated by the almond extract, which really pairs beautifully with the bright, juicy raspberries.

4-Ingredient Coconut Macaroon Bars

These FOUR INGREDIENT Coconut Macaroon Bars taste just like macaroon cookies but in convenient, easy, crowd-pleasing bar form! Chewy, a little crisp with sweet, nutty coconut flavor in every bite! You’re only four simple ingredients away from making these super coconutty Coconut Macaroon Bars! Chewy, slightly crisp, nutty and sweet, they’re only a few ingredients you probably have at home in your pantry!

So I just got back from QVC! Did you guys catch me on there? (If not, you can always go to QVC’s website and type in “Two in One Desserts” and the video… and the link to buy it! will pop right up!)

It was all the way in pretty West Chester, Pennsylvania and was a whirlwind of a trip. I flew over there on Tuesday, my segment aired live on Wednesday, and I was back in California by Thursday afternoon. PHEW.

But I have to say, the 6+ hour travelling both days was sooo worth the experience of being on QVC.

Everyone who works at QVC is SO sweet. I’m not joking – everyone. From the barista who gave me the strongest tea ever (I needed caffeine to stay up late for my segment!), to the security guards, to the actual hosts, David Venable, Stacy Stauffer and Kerstin Lindquist (the latter of whom declared my cookbook cookies “the BEST!”).

And of course, David loved everything, too 🙂 I even got an infamous Happy Dance out of him!

But now I’m back home to being a regular person and not a celebrity 😉 I don’t have a built-in salon curling my hair before my air time, I don’t have access to my own private dressing room and I’m not hanging backstage with the Scrub Daddy dude, who is awesome, by the way. And I’m kinda misty-eyed about it, I’ll say. Who doesn’t want their hair profesh curled on a whim? Exactly.

So here I am, baking you Coconut Macaroon Bars on a Tuesday. As one does.

I actually made this recipe years and years ago but desperately needed to update the photos, as you can tell if you dare to click the link and see them. (Yikes). But I remembered how delicious those nutty, chewy bars were and knew I had to remake them before Easter and share them with you. So here we are!

These FOUR INGREDIENT Coconut Macaroon Bars taste just like macaroon cookies but in convenient, easy, crowd-pleasing bar form! Chewy, a little crisp with sweet, nutty coconut flavor in every bite! These bars only have four ingredients, and I’m guessing you likely have those ingredients at home already. The one surprise ingredient? Refrigerated crescent roll dough, which is the base of these bars. No, these bars will not taste like a dinner roll with coconut sprinkled on top. Yes, they will surprisingly taste like a coconut macaroon cookie but baked into a bar form for something unique, unexpected, and totally hassle-free, unlike scooping individual mounds of cookie dough.

Make them for your favorite coconut lover!

Sweet Cream Gooey Bars

These Sweet Cream Gooey Bars are fabulous! They taste like melted vanilla bean ice cream but in a gooey, chewy bar form! Made with International Delight Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer & fresh vanilla beans for a gorgeous, elegant and delicious bar recipe! #CreamerNation #ad #InDelightThese Sweet Cream Gooey Bars taste just like sweet cream & vanilla bean ice cream in one gooey, chewy, outrageously delicious bar and are made EASY with International Delight Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer!

So for the longest time, I was a coffee faker.

What’s a coffee faker? It’s someone who says they like coffee to impress people but secretly don’t even drink it because it’s too strong. (Being a teenager is hard, okay? I had to impress people where I could… even if it was lying about a coffee obsession.)

My “coffee” was limited to frappes at the local coffee shop which didn’t even have coffee in them. I only got them because I loved all the fun flavors available.

…And then I was introduced to coffee creamers, and my life has changed dramatically for the better, obviously. I started slowly introducing coffee into my morning routine, filled with copious amounts of coffee creamer (AKA, the only way to drink coffee, in my not-so-humble opinion). And to this day, I still can’t have a cup o’ joe without having coffee creamer. It’s, well, the creamer to my coffee. The peanut butter to my jelly. The dog to my bone. You get it, right?

Anyway, as a new ambassador for International Delight, I am SO EXCITED to be bringing you fun recipes made with coffee creamer! If you’ve only considered creamer good for coffee, I’m about to blow your mind, y’all. Coffee creamer is an excellent addition to so many desserts – think about adding it instead of milk to milkshakes as a baby-steps option… and then come back and quickly make these Sweet Cream Gooey Bars!

These Sweet Cream Gooey Bars are fabulous! They taste like melted vanilla bean ice cream but in a gooey, chewy bar form! Made with International Delight Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer & fresh vanilla beans for a gorgeous, elegant and delicious bar recipe! #CreamerNation #ad #InDelightSo I bet you’re wondering what my favorite coffee creamer flavor is… and hands-down, it’s Sweet Cream.

  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • One 8 ounce pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • One 16 ounce box powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla bean paste (or sub 2 tsp vanilla extract)
  • ⅓ International Delight Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • Additional powdered sugar for dusting on baked bars, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13” rectangular baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the crust ingredients until a soft dough comes together. Press into the prepared pan in an even layer; set aside briefly.

Mojito Bars

These MOJITO BARS are like classic lemon bars but with a lime & mint twist! A buttery shortbread crust topped with a fresh lime and rum-soaked mint curd, baked to perfection! Tastes JUST like a classic mojito, beach optional!These Mojito Bars have all the flavors of a mojito that you love in one gooey, chewy, delectable bar! This is such a fun twist on a classic lemon bar!

Do you ever need a change? I suppose that’s a really dumb question, because everyone needs a change every once in awhile.

But even me – Girl Who Generally Fears Change – needs a change every now and again.

Like, especially now… I am kind of dying for a pixie haircut. And lately I cannot get enough of pineapple salsa by Newman’s brand. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME.

And although lemon reminds me so much of springtime (or vice versa), I have already been-there, done-that with lemon bars and wanted something different. Something fresh and exciting. Like the pixie haircut of desserts.

So I made Mojito Bars. Natch.

These are just like lemon bars in construction but made with limes and mint, a pairing so heavenly they made a drink out of it. (Uh.. the mojito, in case you were wondering).

So basically, anatomically, they’re made with the same shortbread-y crust as a classic lemon bar. Partially bake that sucker, then pour on the filling which consists of lime juice & zest, some eggs, sugar, a splash of milk, and rum-soaked mint leaves. *record scratch* RUM-SOAKED MINT LEAVES, Y’ALL. Or if you want to keep these booze-free (who are you?), rum-extract-soaked mint leaves.

HALLELUJAH.

Bake ’em up until they’re just about set, then chill them. I know, total buzzkill BUT totally necessary to make sure they cut evenly and prettily. Otherwise you’ll have a mojito hot-mess on your hands. Which, ironically is my nickname when I drink too many mojitos. ANYWAY.

These MOJITO BARS are like classic lemon bars but with a lime & mint twist! A buttery shortbread crust topped with a fresh lime and rum-soaked mint curd, baked to perfection! Tastes JUST like a classic mojito, beach optional!Then eat them by the pool or while sunbathing or just eat them inside curled up by the fire because it’s still blizzard-ing in some states and this will be your one-way ticket to paradise.

BRB, Mojito-ing everything!

  3. While crust pre-bakes, steep the mint. Combine the rum and mint leaves (or, if using rum extract, rum extract, water, and mint leaves) and steep in a bowl while the crust bakes. Then make your filling: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour, and salt until creamy and pale yellow. Whisk in the lime zest, juice, and milk, followed by the green food coloring, if using. Lastly, strain the mint leaves and add the liquid from the mint leaves to the filling mixture, stirring to combine.
  4. Pour the filling evenly over the crust and return to the oven. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until the center is just about set - if it jiggles a little, that's okay, but it shouldn't be sloshing in the pan. Remember, do not over bake these! Cool the bars in the pan completely, then refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours before cutting for cleaner squares. Garnish with additional powdered sugar, if you'd like.

These MOJITO BARS are like classic lemon bars but with a lime & mint twist! A buttery shortbread crust topped with a fresh lime and rum-soaked mint curd, baked to perfection! Tastes JUST like a classic mojito, beach optional!The rum-soaked mint leaves really add a lovely minty punch to these zesty, bright and tart lime bars and are a MUST in a mojito!! I hope you love this fun twist!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars

These REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP BARS are heavenly homemade squares that taste JUST like deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cups. An easy, quick, and entirely no-bake dessert! If you love peanut butter cups but wish they were jumbo-sized, I’ve got you covered! These Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars are just the ticket to squashing your giant PB cup craving!

I have yet to bake in my new kitchen… but that changes TODAY!

I have been dying to test out my appliances and get baking for my new neighbors, but the whole organizing your life back into order thing after moving is kind of exhausting. Who knew I had so much stuff that needed to be bubble-wrapped, then unwrapped, then put away? GAH.

And no, I have not read that magical book about tidying up, thankyouverymuch.

So basically I’ve been waking up, feeding my still-confused dogs and getting to work around the house. But oddly, I love all the chores of putting things away and wiping down my own counters. Yes, I’ve found some odd sense of joy in laundering my own socks, and I appreciate how nice it is to come home to a clean house.

I know this feeling will eventually wear off and I will want to set fire to my clothes rather than launder them, but for now I’m enjoying this new-house honeymoon stage 🙂

Anyway, I was thinking about what to bake first in my new place and these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars, which I’d previously made at my old place, came to mind. But the thing is… these bad boys are no-bake, so I don’t even need the oven to whip them up.

…Which is going to rock in a few months when it’s a bajillion degrees and turning on the oven is about as logical as jumping from a three-story building into a pit of rocks.

These REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP BARS are heavenly homemade squares that taste JUST like deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cups. An easy, quick, and entirely no-bake dessert! These are slightly addictive; you’ve been warned! The base consists of a little confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs, which give them a slight crunch and helps the bar hold its shape. The mixture is poured into a pan and set in the fridge, then topped with a thick, smooth layer of chocolate ganache. The result is a deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cup bar that’s totally out. of. this. world.

Who wants to come over!?

Soft & Chewy Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are incredible! Soft, chewy, fudgy brownies flavored with red velvet and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting! Soft, chewy and totally rich, these Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are delightful! Super simple to make and easy to decorate for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday!

I love recipes that can be made holiday-ish or made for everyday consumption.

In the past, I was all about completely unique desserts using seasonal ingredients like Cadbury eggs or the flavor-of-the-moment Oreos. But I realize not everyone has access to those ingredients, which renders basically the whole recipe useless.

So now, I love making what we bloggers call “evergreen content.” This basically means it’s content that never really goes out of style year after year, or even within the seasons. And these Red Velvet Brownies most certainly fit that bill!

These guys have been the bane of my existence, to be frank. I have made like three or four batches of them before finally liking this recipe best. The first one was totally my fault – I goofed and added like 3/4 cup of cocoa powder to the batter, yielding a, well, brownie. No red in sight. The next batch, I added less cocoa but still too much for a red velvet color. And the third one I underbaked, because I still do that, people.

Finally, fourth time being the charm, I nailed it. And I think you’ll agree!

These are so soft, chewy and moist and flavored with all that red velvet goodness. They have just a touch of cocoa powder to give it that oomph without it being a full-on chocolate brownie. And of course, the red color is GORGEOUS! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, Christmas… or a random Thursday 🙂

These Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are incredible! Soft, chewy, fudgy brownies flavored with red velvet and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting! But because I can’t leave anything be, I added a cream cheese frosting. (Because duh). It is so creamy, dreamy and smooth and totally drives home the red velvet flavor in these bars.

Mouth, prepare to be amazed.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top.
  3. Bake for approx. 22-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist, not wet, crumbs. Cool completely.
  4. To make the frosting: Beat together the butter, cream cheese and vanilla with an electric mixer until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the powdered sugar until frosting is spreadable and light.
  5. Spread the frosting onto the cooled brownies in an even layer. If using, top with sprinkles. Refrigerate covered for at least 2 hours to set.

These Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are incredible! Soft, chewy, fudgy brownies flavored with red velvet and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting! I hope you love the Red Velvet Brownies as much as I did! They went FAST in my house!

Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier! Everyone’s had a peanut butter blossom cookie, but have you tried Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies?! These are so much easier than dropping cookies and make for gooey, fudgy bars!

I don’t know about you, but peanut butter blossoms are some of my favorite cookies.

A soft and chewy peanut butter cookie topped with a solid chocolate Kiss candy… just perfection!

I know they’re kind of Christmas-y, or at least, they’re popular at Christmastime in the Parker household. But I figured since they’re made with Kisses and Valentine’s Day is coming up… well, you can do the math 🙂

I found the idea for these from my friend Ashley over at Baker by Nature, and because I was pondering ways to make these cookies into bars. Personally, bars are one of my favorite things to make because they’re such a cinch – throw the ingredients into the pan and bake! No dropping, rolling, or cutting anything out, and certainly no waiting for batches to finish before you can put another pan in. Not even a dough chilling!

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier! And these could not be more simple, I promise! Made in one bowl, baked in one pan, mixed with one spatula. See? I told you this was already easier than the cookie version!

To make these, simply melt some butter. You can do this in the microwave, or on the stove – whichever you prefer. I honestly alternate, as sometimes I feel like I’d rather cook it on the stove, or perhaps my microwave’s being used.

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier!  Whisk some brown sugar and peanut butter into the melted butter, followed by eggs, vanilla, and your dry ingredients. Pour the mixture into a foil-lined & greased pan, scatter sugar over the top, and bake! Once it’s baked, take it out of the oven and dot the top with those adorable baby Kisses candies.

And then try not to freak out over their cuteness!

(By the way – these are BABY Hershey’s Kisses. I found them in the baking aisle (near the chocolate chips!) at Target. They’re seriously like half the size of a regular Hershey Kiss candy and they come unwrapped… and are perfect for baking. If you cannot find them, simply use regular Hershey’s Kisses!)

  3. Whisk in the creamy peanut butter, followed by the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Whisk in the dry ingredients until a thick, smooth batter comes together.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the top liberally with the white sugar. Bake for approx. 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes, then dot the top with the miniature Hershey's Kisses or chocolate chunks. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into squares.

Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Bars

These Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Bars are a winter wonder! Easy, creamy cheesecake bars made with an Oreo cookie crust and topped with a deliciously smooth cheesecake studded with peppermint bark pieces. So fabulous and perfect for Christmas!These Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Bars are such a fun new way to enjoy the season’s favorite sweet: peppermint bark!

So have you noticed nowadays during Christmas season, everything is peppermint barkified?

And now here I am, giving you more peppermint barkified treats. I’m not sorry.

But I think those peppermint bark purveyors are onto something: the stuff is seriously addictive, and nothing seems more wintry and delicious this time of year than the good ol’ P.B. (That’s not peanut butter, just FYI).

I got the idea to make this cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory because they have their own version of this P.B. goodness in the restaurant this time of year. When I took a bite, it was like heaven’s gates opened and angels sang – seriously life-changing.

But if your Cheesecake Factory is like mine, it’s a little pricey, AND it’s smack dab in the middle of the biggest mall in the area. Which means it’s smack dab in the middle of the worst parking lot in the area. During Christmas. I’ll let you figure it out.

So clearly jumping in the car, braving the crowds and finding a parking spot just for a piece of peppermint bark cheesecake isn’t in the cards. So I resorted to making my own… and I’m glad I did!

This comes from my Perfect Cheesecake Bars recipe, which I recommend you make if you’ve never tried it. Honestly, I prefer making cheesecake bars over an entire pan of cheesecake because A) they’re so much easier, and B) portion control! But if you’re a cheesecake connoisseur and prefer big ol’ pans of cheesecake, go ahead and make this into a larger cake. Just don’t blame me when you face plant the entire thing.

And since it’s less than a week to Christmas, you have plenty of time to make a test batch to enjoy before the big day! YOU’RE WELCOME.

These Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Bars are my new favorite seasonal treat! Creamy, silky-smooth and packed with peppermint bark flavor and pieces in every bite!
Ingredients
  • FOR CRUST:
  • 20 Oreo cookies, finely crushed into crumbs
  • 5 Tbsp butter, melted
  • FOR CHEESECAKE:
  • 2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • ⅓ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped peppermint bark pieces
  • Whipped cream, crushed candy canes and peppermint bark pieces for garnish, optional but recommended
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8x8" or 9x9" square baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter, stirring until moistened. Press into the prepared pan in an even layer. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven, but keep oven on.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  4. Pour the cheesecake filling into the crust and continue baking for 35-40 minutes or until the center is just about set and not sloshing around in the pan; if it jiggles a little, that's okay. Cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting into bars.
