Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

These creamy cheesecake bars start with a shortbread crust, a thick cheesecake layer, and are topped with diced cinnamon apples and a sweet streusel topping. I can’t believe it’s the end of September and I haven’t posted any apple desserts yet. For me, September is all about the apple!

So I increased the cheesecake filling and these are even better than I remember. You can add the caramel on top of the caramel apple cheesecake bars right before serving or before you chill them.

Peppermint Bark

I do not include any peppermint oil or extract in mine, as I like the mint flavor that comes from the crushed candy canes, however you could certainly add it if you want more of a peppermint punch! I’ve also found that trying to actually “cut” the bark doesn’t work so well – a better method is to merely take the tip of a sharp knife and insert it into the bark and apply some pressure, which will start the bark breaking into pieces.
