Description

Salted Pretzel Cherry Cheesecake Bars are a scrumptious, no-bake dessert! A salty, buttery pretzel and graham cracker crust is topped with a decadently smooth cheesecake mixture. Cherry pie filling makes this dessert perfectly fruity and cuts the sweetness with it’s tart cherries. Layers of deliciousness!


Ingredients

Scale

For the crust:

  • 1 sleeve graham crackers (about 9 graham crackers or 1 cup graham cracker crumbs)
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 30 oz cherry pie filling

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Add the graham crackers, pretzels and brown sugar into a food processor and blend until finely crumbed. Pour in the melted butter and gently blend until the crust just starts to come together. Everything should stick together if pressed in between your fingers.
  2. Pour the crust into the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to evenly press the crust together in the bottom of the pan. Place in the freezer while the filling is made.

For the filling:

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Transfer to a side bowl.
  2. Use the same bowl and mixer to whip together the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form, about a couple minutes. Gently fold the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream using a rubber spatula until evenly combined and creamy.
  3. Evenly smooth the cheesecake filling over the prepared crust. Pour the cherry pie filling on top and evenly gloss over the cheesecake filling.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours and up to 24 hours in advance. Enjoy!

Notes

  • This dessert does great being made in advance as it gets better as it sits together. Perfect for family gatherings, holidays and more!
