Raspberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Raspberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Hello everyone! I hope you all managed to enjoy the festive season. Sod's law I was ill on Christmas Day (just the really horrible cold virus that seems to be doing the rounds), so thankfully my mum was cooking Christmas dinner as I definitely would not have been capable. We hosted a couple of big parties at our house this week and had some of hubby's family over on Boxing Day for food and games, so other than feeling a bit under the weather, it's been a busy couple of weeks.

I'm a bit partied out to be honest and if I never see another buffet again it will be too soon... BUT I will make room for just one more buffet on New Years Eve - a little tradition we have started with the kids. We haven't been out for the past few years and to be honest I think I actually prefer staying in, eating nice food, drinking nice wine and playing some games. Maybe I'm just getting old!

As well as getting old, I also crave routine and order in my life, so I'm REALLY looking forward to the decorations being packed away tomorrow (kids aren't impressed but they go up the first weekend in December so they can't really complain) and the house getting a good clean. Then it's a few more days of eating and drinking what I want before detox January begins. I've done dry January for the past few years as well a bit of a food detox. My body will be craving this come the 1st of January.

As a bit of a last hurrah though, I've made a batch of these yummy white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake bars, ready for our little party on New Years Eve and I'll enjoy them while I'm still allowed to eat naughty things. They are really easy to make, despite the rather long recipe and method and are most definitely worth the effort.

I hope you all have a good new years eve, whether it's an early night with a cup of tea or an all night party with copious amounts of booze! See you on the other side.

  • The bars can be made and then frozen for up to three months. Just take them out of the freezer and allow them to defrost fully before eating.
