When I’m not eating cheesecake, I am 100% convinced that I don’t like it. Which is ridiculous for a couple reasons. A) Cheesecake is DELICIOUS and B) I once admitted to eating an entire cheesecake with my BFF while myspace stalking our ex-boyfriends.

So when Nicole and I set out on this s’mores week project I decided to make a cheesecake because I, like just about every other wife of a deployed serviceman, am trying to lose a few pounds before my husband comes home and I knew without a doubt that the cheesecake would not sit in the fridge and call my name until I finally got out of bed at 5:30 am to have a piece. Because I don’t like cheesecake.

Duh.

But guess who was standing in front of the fridge yesterday morning with a cheesecake bar in her hand while she waited for the coffee to brew.

I don’t even need to tell you how good these bars are. I mean they’re portable cheesecake pieces with s’mores fixins on top! That can’t possibly be bad.

And I love making cheesecake bars instead of a cheesecake because they are so much easier. No worrying about a water bath or a cracked top. They come out perfect every time!
