St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! I think it’s time to share another fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert. These Green Velvet Cheesecake Bars have just the right amount of green to be festive.
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
1 stick butter, melted
1 oz green food coloring. Tip: I like the way gel food coloring works. It takes less dye and it doesn’t make everything as wet.
3 8z packages cream cheese, softened
2⁄3 cup sugar
1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
green sprinkles Tip: I find that it is hard for me to find just green sprinkles at my store. It is easier for me to purchase them online. Or these little shamrock sprinkles are adorable.
Tip: If you use parchment paper, the dessert is easier to remove from the pan. I use it for a lot of my desserts, but it can be hard to find at the store. Here is another option to get parchment paper conveniently.
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper.
2) In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and green food coloring. Stir well to combine. Press into the bottom of prepared baking pan.
3) Beat together cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs, one a time and mix well. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of crust.
4) Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until center is set. Cool for 15 minutes and then transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely before slicing. Top with green sprinkles.
