Let me start out this post for Strawberry Pretzel Salad by saying I know this is not a salad. But it’s been a midwest staple dessert for as long as I can remember.

I fondly remember making this with my Nana for all types of occasions. I have lost my Nana’s exact recipe, but recreated it using the same ingredients from her classic sweet-and-salty dessert.

A buttery, salty pretzel crust layered with a no-bake style cheesecake filling and topped with Jell-o and strawberries. As you can imagine, this strawberry pretzel salad speaks to my cheesecake-loving heart.

One of the things I’ve learned about being a parent is that mini things are the way to get kids interested in just about anything.

I mean, who can blame them? I fall for it too, and I’m a grown adult!

Whether it’s cutting sandwiches with a cookie cutter to make mini sandwiches or scaling desserts down to kid size, I can be pretty much guaranteed that anything small will get some attention around here.

And you know this applies to my all-time favorite dessert, ok?

That’s right. We’re talking about mini cheesecakes!

One of the absolute easiest recipes you can make for summer entertaining is No-Bake Cheesecake. 

It’s super easy to throw together, requires simple ingredients, and is perfect if you make it the night before you plan on serving. 

I’m all for dessert recipes that need a little time to marinate overnight – like this brownie trifle and homemade lemon bars. I can whip them together the night before and then I don’t have to worry about making a dessert the day we’re hosting family or friends. 

You can serve no-bake cheesecake plain, with fresh summer berries, or put out a variety of toppings to create a little cheesecake topping bar!

Plated cheesecake bars topped with various toppings: caramel, raspberry sauce, and fresh fruit

If you happened to catch my recipe for Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, you might remember me telling you that we like to treat our chiropractor to sweet treats.

Sure, those treats might help us out when we need to be squeezed into his schedule, but he’s also the absolute nicest guy. And not to mention, he’s very enthusiastic with with his dessert reviews – which is something that I just adore about him.

We took him several pieces of these cheesecake bars a few weeks ago and he hasn’t stopped talking about them since. Even proclaiming this cheesecake recipe to be better than his mom’s “blue ribbon winning cheesecake.” And I think that’s saying something.

Although these cheesecake bars are pretty basic, I think the crust is what makes them better than “blue ribbon winning.” It’s little on the thicker side, extra buttery, and the hint of cinnamon adds just a little something special.
