So I’m on a bit of a strawberry kick after making the Valentine’s Day Strawberries and Cream Puppy Chow. I’ve always been a strawberry fan and pink is the perfect Valentine’s Day color! It’s the perfect color for any occasion actually.
My favorite way to eat a strawberry cake is with cream cheese icing, hands downs. But I didn’t want a cake. I wanted a bar. They’re a bit more portable. So today I bring you Strawberry Cream Cheese Bars.
And they are just what I wanted them to be. Soft. Chewy. Pink. Strawberry. Cream Cheese-y. Sprinkle-y. And very easy to make.
You start with by mixing the ever fabulous strawberry cake mix with melted butter and milk. Press half of it into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. You may think you won’t have enough to cover the bottom of the pan, but you will. Trust me.
Then mix together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Spread it over the strawberry layer.
Crumble the other half of the batter on top of the cream cheese mixture, sprinkle on some cute Valentine’s Day sprinkles and bake!
The hardest part is waiting until they’re cool to eat them. Delish!Print
