Eggnog Cheesecake Bars

Eggnog!! For most of the year, I don’t even think about eggnog, but when it’s time to put up the Christmas tree, all of a sudden I begin to crave that thick, rich, creamy drink. And I can’t just drink it,  I have to make to bake with it too! So today, I’m sharing my favorite Eggnog Cheesecake Bars.

Our families favorite eggnog, is International Delight Classic Nog and that’s what I used to make these Eggnog Cheesecake Bars. These bars are full of all the popular holiday flavors everyone loves with the creamy, smooth eggnog cheesecake with a hint of nutmeg. I also sprinkled a delicious spiced crumble mixture on top because who doesn’t love a crumble topping!?

These Eggnog Cheesecake Bars are the perfect dessert to bring to your holiday party, everyone will love them. Trust me, they will go fast, I often make a double batch. Enjoy!

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: To make it super easy for you to cut these eggnog cheesecake bars into squares, line your 13×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the bars have cooled lift the bars out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Use a sharp knife to cut these bars into squares and enjoy!

 CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE: For the cream cheese mixture, make sure that you beat the cream cheese, sugar, and nutmeg until smooth, you don’t want to see any lumps of cream cheese. That’s why it’s important to make sure your cream cheese is softened.
