No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Bars are the go-to dessert when you are feeding a crowd.   if i can get away with not turning on the oven, that’s even better.  These No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Bars have a chocolate crust with a thin layer of melted chocolate in between for that something extra.  Super creamy, silky smooth filling swirled with fresh blueberry sauce make these bars as pretty as they are delicious.

  5. Dollop fresh blueberry sauce on top and using a butter knife, swirl sauce into cheesecake filling. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.


Recipe Notes
The layer of chocolate should be THiN. The first time i made them, the layer of melted chocolate was too thick and it was hard to get through. Learn from my mistakes! Don't get greedy with the chocolate 
Vanilla bean paste - the paste contains the scraped out bits of the vanilla bean, so you'll see little specks of vanilla. it is my preferred vanilla if i'm not using the actual vanilla bean pod.
