Fresh cherries and chocolate combine with a creamy, no-bake cheesecake filling in these Cherry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars. A chocolate ganache drizzle is the perfect finishing touch.
My family couldn’t stop raving about these cheesecake bars. I initially set out to make a 9-inch pan, but I’m so glad I thought better of it and went with the 9×13, because they were gone within 48 hours. They aren’t overly sweet, which makes it dangerously difficult to stop after just one piece. Thank goodness I had a house full of boys to help me eat them!
The fresh cherries make all difference, so if you don’t have a cherry pitter, do yourself a huge favor and get a pick one up. Trust me, you’ll find all kinds of delicious reasons to use it! This tastes even better the next day, so make it well ahead of serving time, if you can.
