Eggnog Cheesecake Bars
Do you know what eggnog is? It's made with milk, eggs, sugar, and cream. The eggs get whipped up so they offer a super frothy and thick texture. Then you add in warm spices and it becomes a must-have drink for the holiday season. A lot of people add some booze for an adult cocktail. If you don't want to drink your eggnog, consider making it transform into eggnog dessert bars.
For this recipe, I opted to use store-bought eggnog, but you may use your favorite homemade eggnog recipe instead.
How To Make Eggnog Cheesecake Bars
You will start by working on your Oreo crust, and then get it pressed down into the pan. Now you will grab another bowl or stand mixer and begin working on your eggnog batter.
Get it whipped up and pour it into the pan on top of the crust. Sprinkle in some chocolate chips too! Place in oven and bake it up until the cheesecake is cooked through. Allow it to cool and then store in the fridge to set up as directed below.
Can I Make This Eggnog Dessert Bar Ahead of Time
Yes, it is best to make these a bit in advance because they take time to set up. You will need to chill these bars in the fridge for at least 6 hours. I recommend making these cheesecake eggnog bars at least a day in advance before you plan to serve them.
How Long Will Eggnog Bars Store For
You can store these bars in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. Use your best judgment in terms of quality. If you are in doubt throw them out, you don't want to make yourself sick.
Can You Freeze Eggnog Bars
I have not tried freezing these bars, but I think they would freeze just fine. Just transfer into an airtight container for sealable freezer bag and store for up to three months. Thaw on the counter for 30 minutes or so before serving. Or place in the fridge overnight for a slow thawing of the cheesecake bars.
